Biržai Castle

Biržai Castle is a Dutch-style fortress with bastions built by the Duke Radvila family and used to defend Lithuania’s northern borders in the 17th-18th centuries. In 1978-1988, a dilapidated palace of the castle complex has been restored. Today, it houses Jurgis Bielinis Public Library of Biržai from 1988, and Biržai Regional Museum Sėla, from 1989 (www.birzumuziejus.lt). Besides the palace, two gunpowder buildings, and a bridge have so far been restored. In 2013 years was rebuilt an arsenal.
