This church is absolutely stunning. It might not seem too glamorous from the outside but the interiors were magnificent. Absolutely loved it! When you visit this church, don't forget to make a wish in the special spot somewhere in the square beside the church. You turn 3 times and make a wish. :)

Most impressive landmark with a beautiful bell tower. You could easily go in and be at peace and rest if you wanted to.

This is the heart of the Vilnius. There is "Shtibukas" a place to make a wish. From Cathedral you can go to old city, to Vilnius , Uviversity, or to climb on the Old Watch Tower.

The Cathedral itself is very plain in comparison to other churches but it is worth visiting the side Chapel of Casimir to see the 3 handed image of St Casimir . Visit also the Madonna picture in the main church considered to be miraculous

The Cathedral of Vilnius seems completely renovated, spectacular monument of faith in an appropriately large square. The adjacent castle, bell tower make this sight a must in Vilnius.

Churches are often just huge halls without the means to get your fullest attention if visiting on weekday without any service going on. I happened to be around for a Sunday mass and it was truly impressive and touching. If you have the time, this is a different experience- and be aware; it is going to be crowded - which... More

This fantastic beautiful Cathedral with its belfry, the big Cathedral Square, the rebuilt lower Castle of the Grand Dukes of Lithuania and the Gedimino Tower is really the central point of Vilnius.
