If you want to stand at a place of history, the Gates of Dawn is a must see. You go back at this location. A must see here is Our Lady at the Gates of Dawn prayer room. Very powerful and beautiful. Room filled with silver hearts.
The Gates of Dawn were built between 1503 and 1522 as a part of defensive fortifications for the city of Vilnius, the capital of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania. It has also been known as the Medininkai Gate, as it led to the village Medininkai south of Vilnius as well as Aštra broma, which derivative for the Lithuanian language word aštra meaning sharp. Of the nine city gates, only the Gate of Dawn remains, while the others were destroyed by the order of the government at the end of the 18th century.
