I have spent six month of Vilnius, but even if you will spend there less time it will be impossible not to pass in front of it less than three times a week, and once back home you will definetely miss its wonderful sight.

The must-see here is the last room at the front of the sanctuary on the right side of the church. Extremely ornate, the room contains the remains of the national saint.

I loved this huge, impressive Cathedral. The decoration is more bearable and simple, there is a huge organ and I enjoyed some of the Sunday service. A must visit.

This is one of the most beautiful cathedral right in the middle if the city. There is a tower next to it which you can climb for about $ 6 fee and get a nice view of town. The cathedral is very artistic and nicely decorated for inside. The outside looks like it was just built recently so mainly very... More

This is the Cathedral of Vilnius. Visiting for purely tourist reasons the cathedral is very beautiful and so is the local area to match it. Some amazing photos to be taken with the local monuments and in the square beside it

This is a large and beautiful church in the centre of Vilnius. The interior of the church is nice but it is the exterior of the church that is the most impressive. Well worth a visit.

This is an amazing area with beautiful scenery. Some of the statues are historic along with stunning views of the cathedral itself. I would recommend this as a must see in Vilnius.
