Nice interior with large paintings, though I prefer older churches instead of these with white walls. Use the side door.

The Cathedral Square was an amazing location for ringing in the new year, with an extravagant fireworks display. It was possibly special this year, due to the upcoming euro membership, but we were told that is was always good. Although there was a very large crowd, it was all perfectly pleasant and enjoyable, and the mood just as one would... More

It's a cultural and historical sight, surely a must-see of the Old Town. I recommend climbing up the Cathedral's Belfry, it's fun and you'll get nice views (and photos) from its top. The height of the Belfry (including the cross) is 57 metres. But be careful as the stairs are narrow and slippery, and there's no elevator.

We liked the look of this very old building as all churches of this era the inside is spectacular. From the very old thick doors that let light show through the gaps in the old wood to the beauty of the interior well worth a visit and a quiet prayer for loved ones.

The building is quite a masterpeice from the outside. The style is very luxerious and majestic. The inside is more of an average experience for me at least, I´ve seen very simular churches in other cities, but you might like it better!

After falling into neglect during the Soviet era, the neo-classical cathedral has been restored and now contains numerous fine paintings and statues. particularly impressive is the St Casimir Chapel. Unusually, the cathedral belfry is a... More

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.
