“If you like Cathedral's a must see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

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.

“This is not a Greek Orthodox church :)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

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!

“My favourite church in Vilnius”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

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.

“Well kept secret”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

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 courtyard of this wonderfull small church
