Biržai Castle is a castle in Biržai, Lithuania. Construction of the earth bastion-type castle started in 1586 by the order of Krzysztof Mikołaj "the Lightning" Radziwiłł. In 1575, preparing for this construction, a dam was built on the Agluona and Apaščia rivers at their confluence, and the artificial Lake Širvėna, covering about 40 km², was created. Major castle building works were finished in 1589.

Astravas Manor is a manor in Biržai suburb Astravas, Lithuania. It was built for Jan Tyszkewicz in 1849–1862 in neoclassical style by architect Tomasz Tyszecki. The manor's next owner Michael Tyszkiewicz let his relative Eustachy Tyszkiewicz to settle there so as to devote all his time to his scholarly pursuits. The damage that the estate sustained during World War II was repaired between 1955 and 1962. The mansion has a rich classical interior decorated with many sculptures. Decorative sculptures of Medici lions that stood at the entrance to the manor were replaced with copies, with the original sculptures being moved to the Vytautas the Great War Museum in Kaunas. The manor complex has a large classical park with a lot of tiny artificial lakes located within it.
