The ponds of Liubavas were thoroughly described in the treasury book of the Lithuanian ruler Sigismund Augustus back in 1546. Liubavas has been governed by the prominent nobles of Lithuania. The famous Lithuanian sculptor Rapolas Slizienis (1804–1881) was living and creating in Liubavas Manor. Visitors can explore Liubavas manor in the stonework mill – a new museum initiated by the sculptor Gintaras Karosas.
