You then take an place near a shrine that you pick. Attended Sunday mass there offered by Bishop in Lithuanian (He is from US). Mass is not too... More

When you are visiting this Cathedral in Vilnius, you should also take an excursion to its crypts. The guide will guide you through history of Grand Dukes of Lithuania, show crypts, catacombs and frescoes. Ticket costs EUR 4.50, registration is required.

What takes your breath away is the sheer size of this place. It is quite simply huge. A beautiful building with a stunning interior. You can take photos but turn off your flash first. I was sad not to be able to visit the catacombs - as they are only in the late afternoon & were booked up. I know... More

I always check out churches on my travels - perhaps especially impressive cathedrals. This one, however, I found quite boring. There's not a whole lot to discover in it, as it's very simple in its layout and stark squareness. It is still worth seeing for the remaining 17th century St. Casimir chapel, which makes you wish that the Baroque cathedral... More

This is the most beautiful structure in my opinion in Vilnius,the beautiful building look's stunning,the cathedral (arkikatedra bazilika) mark's the start or end depending on your perspective of Gedimino avenue and along with the tower next to it must be the most photographed building in this lovely city. The exterior is superb ,all white while the interior is just amazing,the... More

The "poster image" of Vilnius certainly is the catherdral and the bell tower in the main square. In its pristine white finish the structures look glorious on a bright sunny day as when I visited. The main square is very easy to locate from anywhere in the city and is well worth a visit. The cathedral interior is perhaps not... More

This cathedral is part of a large "square" for lack of a better term. The tower near it, along with the church, make it a perfect stop. The cathedral is beautiful and a must see if you are in Vilnius.
