Explore Lithuanian heritage through the flavours of modern Lithuanian cuisine!

After the MID-TOUR trip, the symposium participants will meet for dinner at the hospitality complex MONTE PACIS, which is housed in a historic guesthouse built in the 17th century by the Chancellor of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, Kristupas Zigmantas Pacas. The name MONTE PACIS means Mountain of Peace, and hospitality is mentioned on purpose – it is a universally accepted daily tradition of treating a guest with joy and care.

The natural beauty of the Regional Park, the grandeur of the historical and cultural heritage site, the spiritual atmosphere, cosy interior, locally grown produce, legendary recipes historically tied with the monastery interpreted in a modern way by a professional chef, and wine produced in various European monasteries: all this and more will make time stand still and transform the meeting of EGF delegates into a unique and special experience.
