Venue | Belmontas

The French (Belmont) mill was built in 1838 and stopped working only in the middle of the 20th  century. 

An idea of restoration, which started in 2001, was based on the great respect to the remaining relicts of our history and the amazing landscape of surroundings of Vilnius town. All authentic buildings and their parts were thoroughly preserved and restored, lost parts and elements were rebuilt maximally adapting the current designation to planned and spatial structures of the old mill buildings. The later buildings of this area were reconstructed providing the ethnographic and regional character to their external architecture and interiors. While the new buildings harmoniously match with whole complex of buildings of the 19th century.

Neat surroundings, restored buildings and interiors of the halls enriched with ethnographic and antique pieces and furniture demonstrate some features of a lifestyle of people of Lithuania in the 19th century, their enjoyments and tastes. Thus, visiting this place, you can not only relax,  enjoy a meal or entertain, but also get acquainted with various collections – from hunting trophies to antique works of authors of applied arts.

Sweeping Vilnia, which gave its name to the capital of Lithuania, fights the obstacles created since ice age and curves through the biggest loops here: the river valley is the widest and the most picturesque. Unforgettable landscape is shaped by large terraces of Vilnia, playful hills, combinations of spurs and bluffs, and hills covered with forests.

We invite you to come to this wonderful corner of Vilnius where you will be warmly welcomed.
