The church contains art and vestments from the churches throughout Lithuania and has some truly wonderful mediaeval statues including carved wooden figures of German, Moslem and Jewish men beside the usual christian iconography. Of interest is the story of the group finding the "lost" gold and silver treasures hidden from the Nazis and then "hiding" it the from the Russians

This church houses the Church Heritage Museum - a beautiful collection of religious artefacts, many from Vilnius Cathedral. Liturgical vessels (chalices, monstrances) and reliquaries made of precious metals and jewels. Everything is displayed perfectly in well-lit display cases at eye-level. The entrance ticket includes a free audio-guide, which is full of detail and certainly enhances the experience. You can borrow... More

St. Michael's is now the Church Heritage Museum. Anyone who is interested in religious art and artifacts will find this collection fascinating for its textiles and gold work. Hopefully the temporary exhibition on restoration of paintings of the Madonna will still be there for you to see. BTW - this is part of a tour package called Belfry, Crypts, Treasury.

There are lot of churches in Vilnius and some of them are very nice and elegant but this church stands out on its own. It has gothic as well as baroque architecture. It is very nicely decorated inside and outside. A must see if you are in Vilnius.

We had a chance to join to the wedding party during our trip. Beautiful church but even more beautiful party. Great to see different ways to celebrate wedding! Congratulations! But don´t worry - you can enjoy the church also without wedding!

I truly like visiting cathedrals and St Michael's was no disappointment. The design, colors, spirituality were plentiful. The construction is just amazing. The Church of St Michael was built by the Chancellor of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania Leonas Sapiega between 1594 and 1597 for a convent of Bernardine nuns, and also to serve as a family mausoleum.
