This large church stands grand with its interesting round rooftops. It looks impressive on the banks of the river but inside a little plainer compared to its neighbours. Thanks for the vote if you found this review helpful.

06 July, 2017. I was walking all around the Old Town of Vilnius, and came across this rather imposing structure which looked like an Orthodox Church (and indeed, was one). This is close to the artist's area of Uzupis, and the Bernardine and St. Anne...More

I loved this part of town. Make sure to get a pic of the church from the bridge towards Uzipus and include the little mermaid. That external image to me was the best part of it.
