Vilnius has a plethora of lovely churches, and the Cathedral isn't necessarily the best (it isn't in my opinion anyway). It is a stately white building set in a large square, with a separate belltower that can be climbed for a modest fee and offers a good view. Entry to the cathedral itself is free. Inside the Cathedral is bright... More

A magnificent building, a testament to the faith of those who commissioned it and those who built it.

Doesn't take long to walk through this cathedral and you should! Very big and gives you a sense of the importance of religion here. Great small chapel on the side of the church with importance to Casimir. Best to read a bit about the story of Casimir to understand the paintings inside.

The Cathedral has interesting reliquaries inside. The square is a popular gathering place at night for street entertainers.

Very impressive example of early architectural Classicism, without of extravagance of Baroque. Do not miss the visiting the bell tower

Very special. Doesn't fit at all in the rest of the city view. Very Greek-like style buillding. When the sun sets, you can make amazing pics here...

This is the iconic church in Vilnius. It is magnificent inside and out. If you get a chance visit during a church service such as on a Sunday morning - it does not matter that the service is in Lithuanian this will be an amazing and moving experience.

So many churches, but this is worth passing by. We went up the bell tower too (which is actually outside the Cathedral itself, and not very well advertised). Great views from the top, Hard to believe the Commies planned to turn this stunning building into a car garage. Worth spending an hour or so,

Every church we walked into was worth the visit and what surprised me most about Vilinius was the number of gorgeous churches.
