Interesting history and worth visiting the Chapel of Our Lady. The Icon of Our Lady is quite magnificent. It is in a small room at the top of some stairs and people queue for a chance to pray there.

Napoleon marched through this gate. It's easy to find in Old Town, and worth the visit. Lots to see in the area too. Plenty of places to eat, beautiful buildings.

People believe that the icon there is healing, so they donate a lot of silver harts and other objects (legs, hands etc.)

This holy place hosts a very beautiful icon of Holy Mary. If you aren't there to pray, just look around the icon: on the walls there are thousands of little metallic things like hearts, eyes, arms, legs even jaws! They symbolize the wishes of people...More

I like architecture and this is a few hundred years old and authentic. I only gave it 3 stars because it's a bit overrated .. a distant view of a painting that's clearly modern and not a historical relic

It is a small stair up so if you have problems walking in stairs I wouldn't recommend it. It is in the city enter and close to any attractions and great places to visit. The chapel is small so try to visit it when there...More

A little disappointed with this site because the things we could see here were below our expectations; furthermore, we walked along on a cold winter night harassed by 2 drunks and 2 beggars - the government should do something about such people as they give...More

The great icon of the Godmother, virgin Mary. A holy place for Orthodox, Catholics, and Greek Catholics alike! John Paul II was here, which alone makes it a pilgrim place for Poles, who here find spiritual closeness to Russians, and Baltic people alike. Spasi Gospodi!...More

The visit to the Gates of Dawn is short - it is only one room. The entrance is from the Aušros Vartų g, look for the brown door walking down the alley, and then climb the stairs to the right.
