Situated near Vilnius, Liubavas (Lubow) is one of the oldest estates in Lithuania, one that sits at a picturesque location near the River Žalesa.

The ponds of Liubavas were thoroughly described in the treasury book of the Lithuanian ruler Sigismund Augustus back in 1546. In its five hundred years history Liubavas Manor saw the owners representing the Lithuanian political, clergy and cultural elite, including famous sculptor Rapolas Slizienis.

Liubavas (Lithuanians relate it to word love) manor is presented in the unique stonework mill of the manor – a new museum initiated by the artist Gintaras Karosas.

The watermill was built in 1902 at the place of the previous mill mentioned in the manor inventory of 1727. The cleaved stone watermill with the ornate red-brick moulding can be considered exceptional in many aspects. The romantic, historic style architecture of the watermill building is distinguishable for the quality of stone and brick masonry. The production premises expose milling, sifting and groat making equipment. The restored original water turbine, transmission, sack hoist, etc. are among most significant equipment.

This monument of technological heritage tells the story of the manor introducing to the architecture, arts, the manor dwellers of the interwar time, millers, mill technological processes and exhibits the authentic fixtures of the mill.
