Lentvaris settlement in historical source is mentioned even in chronicles of the Teutonic Order. But Park flourished only in the end of XIX century, when manor was inherited by earl Wladyslaw Tyszkiewicz (befor him it belonged to his father Joseph Tyszkiewicz). By initiative and funds of new owner the mansion was rebuild and acquired neogothic forms (by architect Weag). The territory of park is 20 ha, and where designed by famous French landscaping architect Eduard Fransua Andre (Édouard François André, 1840–1911). Thanks to this talented creator, Lentvaris Manor Park is exclusive comparing with other parks of Lithuania. In this park we can find impressive water system, which is connected with ponds and steams, waterfalls and cascades. The park has a unique in Lithuania path system and stone stairs. Park space simulates mountain landscape, but because of area relief effects - hilly (undulating), it looks natural. Park is rich in artificial rocks, many stones, there is a grotto, benches made from rocks and concrete tree stumps. According to historical sources it is known that the park has thrived in times of Tyszkiewicz, there was a cultural life, earls has raised a lot of horses, as well as set up a nail factory.

P.S. The main treasure is to get to know this park, so do not rush while moving from cache stage to stage and spare some time just to look around. Consequently we will ask you to include in your visit log a picture of place you liked the most in this park.
