    We attended mass here on a Sunday night and were impressed by the large crowd. While we could not understand the language, we were fed by the beauty of the place. Being rebuilt in the classic style, there is not much of the past baroque influence. There is a special chapel, however, dedicated to the patron of the city. It is quite elaborate and worth the search.

    Great views of Tallin and the bay. Also the ride from the city to the tower is worthwhile. Enjoyed the observation deck while very windy the day I visited. Also had a quick beer while enjoying the views.

    This is a very striking building, with lots of history behind it. Check opening times before you visit. You have to press the button on the gate to be allowed access, and pay a euro on entry. It's quite a small place of worship, but is very pretty. There are some information boards, but unfortunately the information was only in Lithuanian. Can't imagine you'd spend too long there, but if you're interested in this kind of thing, it's worth checking out.

    Have only seen it from outside, quite impressive, with a beautiful water fountain in the square next to it.

    We explored the church of St Francis, it was a very big building. The walls had been covered in medieval paintings as had the pillar bases and the roof of the apse. sadly most were very faded and some quite damaged. it looks like some restoration is in progress though. Not much information about the building on the gates. it would have been nice to know more.

    This impressive cathedral is located next to the Uzupis bridge and the republic of Uzupis.

    The church was built in the 14th century. It was one of the first churches in Vilnius, built before the Christianization of Lithuania. The Grand Duchy of Lithuania was the last pagan state in Europe.

    Historians are interested in this relic of a bygone era and the almost vanished Karaite community, an minority form of Judaism which pretends not to be Judaism after countless centuries of isolation. A story for another time, this building is one of the few Karaite synagogues left in the world, let alone in Eastern Europe. It's well worth a visit for historians but a boring trip to make for anyone else.

    Dazzling exterior; modest interior. It’s a relatively ‘young’ church, having been built in 1913. A little bit off the beaten track, but definitely worth a visit!

    08 July, 2017.
    I had arrived in Vilnius on 05 July, 2017, and spent the previous
    three days walking all around the Old Town, admiring the old
    churches and cathedrals all around. I was rather intrigued to see
    two tall spires rising into the skies from a distance, yet no
    tourist map of the Old Town or the city really helped me in this
    regard, to identify the place, and its history. On 08 July, I was
    determined to find out more, and after a couple of approaches
    (including one over the grassy mound, leading to a fenced-off area),
    I Was finally able to get to the place I had seen across all my
    roaming across the Old Town. This is an old church which is
    currently closed, but even from the outside, this is a real treat
    for lovers of archaeology, and old structures. The light yellow structure
    had entrance doors on three sides of an impressive entrance, and
    looks striking from the footpath/sidewalk, which has a small
    grassy patch near the entrance.
