Nicest church-museum ever!

A very nice church were lots of interesting masterpieces from churches all around the city have been put together. One of the most interesting museums in Vilnius. Also quite cheap.

St.Michael's church is located in Vilnius old town neat St. Anna's church. It was build as a catholic church and as a mousoleum of one of the richest Lithuanian families - Sapiega. Unfortunately, during the Soviet times, the church was distroyed and a lot of things was stolen. Anyway, now the church is reconstructed and opened as church heritage museum.... More

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.

Just wanted to mention that the previous comment is not correct - in Vilnius there is a very nice and colourful Greek Orthodox church, but St. Michael's church is not the one. It is one of only two churches in Vilnius, representing renaissance style (as well as Gothic and Barocco). :)

This is really worth a visit! Nice colors (the strong green for instance) cosy atmosphere and central position make this Church really worth a visit!

There are churches on every corner in Vilnius and most are very elaborate Gothic structures. But St Michael's is Gothic with Baroque features, and it had a simplicity and peace that the other churches somehow lacked. It was my favourite church in Vilnius.

Anyone coming to Vilnius should visit this Church - it is in the heart of the Old town, but in a quiet part, and most importantly - if you are tired of walking around in one of the largest Old towns in Central Europe, you can spend some time quietly sitting under the shadow of Vilnius symbol, St.Cristofer in the...

Vilnius is usually called a baroque city, but this church is one of rare object remained from Renaissance period. And now it has opened a church heritage museum, full of nice peaces of church art.
