The most beautiful church in Vilnius

We married in this beautiful church. The priest was so attentive, the priest's sermon was breath taking. I am so happy to chose this place for our most important day in our life.

Worth visiting if you have free time in Vilnius. There are many sculptures inside and this makes this church special.It was included in the list of the most beautiful curches in the world. Exterior looks simple but inside it is stunning

This church must be seen from the inside. It has lots of sculptures, frescoes and reliefs, paintings. When You're inside - try to find a sculpture of a skeleton (death reaper), it's quite exclusive. Also chandelier in a form of a ship is worth an attention.

Not very impressive outside, but really beautiful inside. Might be problems with parking near to the church.

Beautiful baroque interior, definitely worth to leave the old city to see this one. Combines very well with cemetery visit. Ps you can skip the restaurant across the street :)

While this church is about 1/2 hour walk from the old town, it is definitely worthwhile a visit. It is completely different to the other churches in the old town. The Stuka work is fantastic. Take a seat and look around.

It is the most beautiful church in Vilnius. The amount of sculptures is incredible and you want to sit there and just look at those wonderful scenes. I felt there like in "frozen theatre". Everything felt so real and almost alive. I love this church and always visiting when I am nearby. Worth visiting :)

With the exterior done in stunning white Baroque style, this is a must see in Vilnius. With its double towers it is a commanding sight. This is a Roman Catholic Church consecrated in 1701. Funded by Michael Kazimierz at his request he is buried at the threshold. The inside is stunning. As you enter and look forward toward the alter,... More
