Pažaislis Monastery is one of the best examples of Baroque architecture in Lithuania. The ensemble, designed by the Italian architect Giovanni Battista Frediani, is decorated with mouldings by Lombardy sculptors and frescoes by the Florentine painter Michele Arcangelo Palloni. Since the summer of 1996, the monastery hosts the annual Pažaislis International Music Festival. During the off-season, the halls of the monastery serve as a meeting point for local artists and their audiences.

Dining in one of its spacious halls will surely make you feel like a Lithuanian noble. Having a glass of wine here is definitely a good idea, as the place has been recognized as the best in a number of categories at the Baltic Wine List Awards 2020.
