Vasaknos Manor

 Vasaknos Manor is a perfect destination for romantic gateways. Once built and owned by the most influential noble families of Lithuanina - Radvilos (Radziwill), Pliateriai (Plater), Tiskeviciai (Tyszkiewicz) - today Vasaknos Manor is a popular wedding and event destination among those looking for authenticity, quality, and beautiful landscape. Unique architecture combines the antique stone and brick walls with oak constructions, glass, and granite in a beautiful connection between the past and the present.

Vasaknos Manor ensemble includes a reconstructed Manor and a brewery, which had already existed in the 18th c., a lakeside sauna, a park with ponds and paths, preserved substructures of stabling and the original palace.                                                                                                                                                        

                                                                                                                                                                                                          

Vasaknos & Radvilos Family

In 1505 the Manir was bought by Radvilos (Polish name is Radziwill) - one os the richest families in Europe at the time. Vasaknos Manor was one of Jonas I Radvila favourites. His grandchildren rebuilt the original and other buildings to be used for rent. While the estate owned by Radvilos was decreasing in XVII c., they kept Vasaknos Manor the longest.

Vasaknos & Plater Family

In 1719, the Manor was bought out by Plateriai (Plater) Family. The first owner was Count Ferdindas Pliateris. Plateriai owned the Manor for over a hundred years.

Vasaknos & Tiskeviciai Family

Around 1828 Vasaknos Manor was taken over by Count Jonas Mykolas Tiskevicus (Polish name is Tyszkiewicz). However, secceding inheritors lived in Poland and the abandoned Manor was doomed for decay.

Vasaknos in XX century

World War I marked the beginning of the tragic period for the Manor. The buildings were abandoned, and once Lithuania was occupied and integrated into the Soviet Union, the Manor rotted away to its foundation.

Vasaknos Manor today

In 2003 the Manor of Vasaknos was acquired by its current owners, who, with the financial support from European Union Structural Funds, have brought it back to life. Today the Manor ensemble is composed of a barn (the building that has been rebuilt), servant house (a brewery today), stabling, the ruins of the original Manor and a park, which has been announced a national heritage site.
