This church has a spectacular facade and an interesting interior. It is a "must see" when in Vilnius. After visiting the church, go across the road and have a look at the art you can find in the opposite street.

We only walked past, but the architecture is amazing, something to appreciate whether you are religious or not

My Lithuanian friend told me that when Napoleon came across this church, he said that he wanted to pick it up, put it in his hand and brought it home as a present for his wife. No one knows if it was true, of course, but it was quite romantic. An absolutely beautiful church that is hard to miss once... More

So much smaller than expected. Not so open to visitors. So busy with communal activities, a living church community it would seem.

Saint Anne is a patron of grandmothers, and there could not be a better name for these "happiest and unhappiest creatures", as Nathan Trauberg once called them - church itself looks small and forever young like a beautiful and naive granddaughter, and every grandmother would like to pray for her. Beware of the little horny devils, that for some reason... More

This church is in stark contrast to most of the other churches. Architecturally from the outside it is worth seeing.

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

There is a legend that the architect who build this church had made an agreement with devil, cause no human could build such building. And the cost of such agreement was the life of the architect beloved one. She died in the church walls and the bricks turned into red because of her blood. Definitely go inside and light a... More
