Charming little church between new buildings, like a herald from old times. And it still works like a church, entrance is free!

St. Gertrude's Church is one of the oldest surviving Gothic buildings in Lithuania. This petite picturesque church is tucked away on Laisves 101 A. Candles are burned around the clock in the basement of the church. One can purchase a lovely candle for a small fee and light for a memory of a loved one.
