This is a must see. Napoleon saw this Gothic architectural work and said that if he would be able he would take this beauty on the palm and bring it to Paris. By the way, inside it is not as ornate as some of the other churches in Vilnius. If you already have come to the Church of St. Anne,... More

My favourite church in Vilnius. It's a functioning church, so there's no museum inside. Free of charge, and you can get inside in the working hours. And the best view on it - from across the street. Also, there's a beautiful legend behind its creation. People say that one old architect got an order to build a very beautiful church.... More

It is unique and nice - one should definitely not miss this church. Its exterior is very unique - I've never seen something quite like it. Next to it there is another church built in the same fashion.

This small church is a must for Vilnius visitor. It is a masterpiece from the Gothic period. Popular legend has it that Napoleon Bonaparte, who was fascinated by the beauty of the church, wanted to take it back to Paris in the palm of his hand :)
