Tiškevičiai Palace, Vilnius

Tiškevičiai Palace is a former residential palace in Vilnius Old Town, near the intersection of Trakų and Pylimo streets.

There have been masonry buildings on the site since the 15th century. The Baroque mansion was designed by Laurynas Gucevičius for the Karpiai noble family in the 18th century.

The palace owes its name to the Tiškevičiai (Tyszkiewicz) noble family who commissioned Tomas Tyšeckis to reconstruct the building in 1840. [1]

The former palace belongs to the Vilnius Gediminas Technical University and houses the Faculty of Architecture. [2]
