"The House Restored"
The Exhibition of Užutrakis Manor Palace interiors


From September 27th, 2013

The exhibition "The House Restored" is the culmination point of Polish-Lithuanian revitalization activities carried out at the former residence of the Count Tyszkiewicz on Užutrakis, which includes the full renovation process of the palace and surrounding park as well as the restoration of its original interiors. Recently completed stage of the proceeding results in reconstitution of the historical features and facilities of the ground floor: Dining Room, Tapestries Hall, Boudoir, Fumuar, the Cabinet of Master and the Little Cabinet. The reconstruction of these unique spaces, both representational and residential, was possible thanks to the cordial support and outgoing loans from the collection of Polish museums : the Wilanów Palace Museum, the National Museum in Warsaw, the National Museum in Cracow, Historical Museum of Cracow, The Foundation of Wojciech Weiss Museum in Cracow, Podlaskie Museum in Bialystok and The Castle Museum in Łańcut.

Acquired sets of furniture, paintings, prints, clocks and fine crafts made it posssible to revive the house, which for decades has been lost, and today we can name it "recovered". Užutrakis Manor Palace, from the very beginning called "White Palace", is situated on the rising shore of Lake Galve, from where you can enjoy romantic views of the medieval castle of the Lithuanian Grand Duke Witold. It was the main site of Joseph Tyszkiewicz dynastic majorat, built between 1896 - 1901 in the neoclassical style, based on the architectural form of the French royal residence Petit Trianon. According to contemporary fashion trends and specific owner's pro-French interests, Užutrakis Manor Palace was furnished in Louis XVI style and also equipped with the valuable collection of paintings, tapestries and other works of art. From the beginning it was arranged basing on the idea of museum. Although the acquired furnishing objects do not have such a consistent character as the original, nowadays this function has been brought back to the Palace, because the interiors' quality comes from the most valuable Polish collections. The first floor of the Palace, which used to include the former residents' private apartments, has been converted into the area intended for temporary exhibitions. Currently it presents a set of unique paintings by Wojciech Weiss, one of the most remarkable Polish artists, coming from the époque of the Palace.

Since 1997, the Direction of Trocki National Historical Park (Trakų istorinis nacionalinis parkas) has began the effort to raise the former house of Tyszkiewicz from complete degradation. Five years ago it has been finally regenerate and has been given a new life. Today we can admire Užutrakis again, as one of the most beautiful residences in Lithuania, amongst the other important European cultural routes. Revitalization of the palace and park complex in Užutrakis was financed by the EU Structural Funds, the budget of the Republic of Lithuania and the Lithuanian Ministry of Culture, the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage of the Republic of Poland, coordinated by the Wilanów Palace Museum in Warsaw.
