“Worth to be seen”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

Impressing church that shows a lot of the history of the whole country. The square in front and beside the cathedral can be used as "meeting point" at any time of the day. It's the real center of the city. Within a five- minutes-walk from there you can find nearly all exciting places of the city!

It's a great central meeting point.
I was couchsurfing and arranged to meet my host there.
Also a beautiful structure.
Located minutes from old town by foot.....

“IMPACTING VIEW”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2013

At the time of Lithuania's Christianization (1387) King Jogaila built a ne Gothic cathedral, which was rebuilt by Vytautas after the 1419 fire. Grand Dukes of Lithuania, from Vytautas to 9 year old Sigismund August, used to be ceremoniously crowned in the Cathedral.

“Mixture of religion, history and statehood”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2013

That is the major specificity of the site. You would feel not only religious atmosphere but also history breathing ... ... Lithuanians have their history. The Cathedral with square and statues around would bring that smell.
