“Don't miss it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

Very nice and impressive place to visit. There are many churches and even cathedrals in Vilnius, but this one is certainly among the most beautiful ones!

“Classic church”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

We visited here on a Saturday afternoon. The church is unusual in that it functioned during the soviet occupation whereas most churches were closed. The interior is spectacular! There was a young couple having their baby baptized while we were there.

“Absolutely stunning”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

Absolutely worth visiting though quite far from the centre (it is located in the area named Antokol). A barocco masterpiece with a very rich and decorative interior. Founded by Michal Pac, who is buried there. On Saturdays a bit crowded as the baptisms and/or weddings can take place.
It can be accessed with the use of the tourist bus on tour offered from the Cathedral Square.

“Stunning reliefs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

Just a little walk of 1 km upto hte hill leads to St Peters and Pauils. ( you even can take the bus if you think it is to far to walk) Really worthwile walk to a beauttiful rather authentic church. The amount of reliefs are really enormous. You can gaze at the ceiling for a lot of time and discover the most peculiar stories and images. Bibllical stories and heavenly creatures. Everthing is there. Also some nice and interesting frescos to be found. The church is still used as a church thats extra nice because therefore it still has the religious atmosphere that belongs to a church. Perfect place to lid a candle for your beloved.
