Wow, interesting chandelier!

Sadly, my visit was on a Sunday morning, so could go no further than the doorway but the chandelier over the main aisle was in the form of a filigree Noah's Ark. Fantastic.

You really need a guide to explain the ornamentation of this completely over-the-top Baroque extravaganza. Look for the ubiqutous presence of the Devil, even at the alter, a reminder that going to church won't keep you from temptation or the results of sucumbing to it.

Thousands of statues adorn the stark white interior of this cathedral. This is a far walk from the historic core, but a quick taxi ride will take you here.

The most stunning interior of a Baroque Church I have ever seen. Bit of a walk from the city centre but well-worth it: the best thing in Vilnius.

I went on a saturday, wedding and baptism days, which are interesting to see. The outside looks like a normal church and not really much that would attract many tourists. The inside, however, is whole other story!! It is the most beautiful church I have ever been to in my life. It is a very elaborate work of art all... More

It was a half an hour walk from the city center to get there, but it was worth doing so. This beautiful baroque church is one of the most beautiful buildings in Vilnius. Very impressive.

I have to admit I've seen enough baroque churches to last me a lifetime. This church which was completed in 1701, however, is very different. The entire church is white which makes the "smallish" paintings on the ceiling pop. While a white church may sound boring, it is absolutely beautiful.

This building is absolutely beautiful! The architecture here is stunning, despite so many turnovers in power over the centuries. We certainly recommend a stop into (and outside of) this church.
