The Presidential Palace

The Presidential Palace traces its history back to the 14th century when Grand Duke Jogaila of Lithuania issued an edict donating land in the city to the Vilnius Diocese and so is sometimes referred to as the Bishops’ Palace. The Palace was built in the late 14th century. The palace was gradually enlarged and renovated over succeeding generations. The palace was badly damaged by fire in 1737 and again in 1748. The palace was rebuilt in 1750. The palace served as a residence for several Imperial Russian governors during the Russian Empire times from 1795 and also for the French Emperor Napoleon in 1812 as well. The palace was rebuilt in the Neoclassical style from 1824 to 1834. The palace served as the government offices after the First World War and has served as the official office of the President of Lithuania since since 1997.
