is the main Roman Catholic Cathedral of Lithuania. It is situated in Vilnius Old Town, just off of Cathedral Square. Dedicated to Saints Stanislaus and Ladislaus, the church is the heart of Catholic spiritual life in Lithuania.

Outside and inside this cathedral will give you peace and estetic joy. Do not forget the Andreas Chapel innermost to the right. Follow all the paintings. From the outside - watch the golden cross when the sun is shining - making the cross very special.

The Cathedral is a really amazing building. It has lots of stories to tell. In order to hear some of them & see the tombs of the nobles of Lithuania.

I took an amazing photo while sunset. Because stone is white and sunshine turns the color from white to red. Take your coffee and enjoy it!

Beautiful building. The squere at the cathedral seems to be the most popular meeting point for the locals. So many teens, lovers and in other groups of people at one place.

If you are visiting Vilnius Old Town, you really should stop into this cathedreal. But you can see it in a short time. It was well worth the time spent, but it is not as well decorated as many other churches in Vilnius or in Europe.
