I specially liked the paintings in the entrance corridor. The church inside is quite nice. It is like a surprise inside the building

A fine example of baroque architecture. This church is right beside the Gates of Dawn, there is a side entrance which links the two. It is open from 7am-7pm. It is highly decorated inside with golds and pinks and beautifully painted walls and ceilings. There is a particularly elaborate high altar. All the decoration makes it appear rather dark inside....

Holy Mass in Polish language at 17:30 in Saturday is very helpful for tourists. Nice to hear old Eastern-Polish pronunciation and see traditional behaivour - kneelind during whole Eucharistic Prayer.

This church is a must see. It is beautiful inside and out. There is a huge pip organ in the loft and during the summer they have concerts inside.

The Church of St. Theresa in Vilnius is a beautiful example of baroque style straight in the center of the city, do not be fooled by the outside it may seem like it really a normal church, but inside is beautiful, what is most striking are the beautiful frescoes and the numerous works of art. A visit here is more... More

Did not have a chance to see the inside of this cathedral but the outside was quite lovely in design. It sits on a historical street near several other churches and the Gates of Dawn. Worth a walk through.

Is one of the most Excellent early Baroque monuments in Vilnius. The church was built in 1633-50 under the patrone of the Vice Chancellor of the Gran Duchy Stephen Pac. Expensive materials such as Swedish sandstone,granite and marble were used for construction. In 1763-65 church interior was decorated with sculptures.

I'm surprised this one didn't appear in any of the tourist listings because it was probably #3 of all the churches I visited in Vilnius. Very dark, but beautiful and colorful inside.

I loved being able to visit this Church with its Barogue architecture in fact I went there twice and once took part in the Mass which was the Jewel on the Crown as far as I was concerned. This Church is situated next to the Gates of Dawn
