Agenda and minutes
Presentations at the meeting
Bistrampolis manor – it is a part of our countryside historical memory and national culture. The cur-rent generation feels a sense of responsibility for continuity of our forefathers’ culture, but the current Lithuanian economical and social relations, allocation of rights and responsibilities does not guarantee the preservation of heritage. Many of the manors aggrieved during the wars waned or were devastated in later times and continues to wane.
The object of Cultural Heritage of Lithuanian Republic, Bistrampolis manor with archaeological, his-torical and landscape value is located in a very favourable geographical location - 14 km from
Panevezys, near Uliunai village, 700 meters from the road Via Baltica.
Bistramai family has owned the manor till 1940. Later the manor was nationalised and neglected. When Lithuania regained its independence the descendants of Bistramai family were offered to take back the manor and rebuild it, but they have rejected the offer. New owners did not take care of the manor, the park and the buildings were waning.
Since 2003 the manor is fostered, supervised and rebuilt by the Public institution "Youth integration possibilities centre” . With efforts and resources of the Centre the historical, architectural, polychrome and park studies were made; central manor house reconstruction project was prepared. The road to the manor was asphalted, a parking lot was equipped, pools were cleaned and park was landscaped since 1997. Already traditional Bistrampolis Festival is being held every year in June-August.
