Pac Palace in Vilnius

The noble Pac family who built Baroque churches and grand monasteries not only prayed in the splendid environment, but also lived in such. The Pac Palace in Vilnius was the greatest decoration of the city for several ages, after it was spruced up by Italian artists from Florence: Giovanni Battista Frediani, Giovanni Pietro Perti, Michelangelo Palloni. Kings, leaders of state and merchants who came to the city stayed there with pleasure. The host of the palace allotted the rental fee for the construction of the magnificent Baroque Church of Saints Peter and Paul in Vilnius. The Baroque frescoes of the Pac Palace are today alive again – the five-star hotel Pacai belonging to the global chain Design Hotels is established here.
