Indrė Gražulevičiūtė-Vileniškė, Jurga Vitkuvienė


The focus of this research is rural manor residencies,
which in the course of history functioned in the agricultural and
natural settings and currently became absorbed into urbanised
areas. The methodology of the research has included the analysis of
literature, historical and contemporary maps, and photographical
surveys of the manor residencies in the territory of Kaunas city. The
aim of our research has been to identify the trends of research in the
area of rural-urban interface and to determine the characteristics
of management and preservation of Lithuanian manor residencies
under the urban pressure.
