Villa Anapilis in Palanga

No, you are not in Switzerland. You are in Palanga, near the Baltic Sea, and you can hear its sounds at the wooden villa with ornate towers. Once it belonged to the famous Count Tyszkiewicz family, and you can only imagine spruced up ladies strolling around the open galleries of the villa with dignity, watching the sunset in the sea from the top floors, or the then president of the country, or a respectable writer, or an artist, or an architect sitting down to have a game of chess. The old residents of Palanga recall stories of the owner of the villa organising spirit-rapping. Some souls are said to have stayed in the villa, which has preserved its architectural forms, and strolling around the museum of the resort housed in this building at night.
