This is a lovely Russian Orthodox Church situated at Didzioji 2 in the old town. Was closed so we couldn't go inside.

Large Russian orthodox church, located on a square in the old town. Can be freely visited. Contrary to many other churches there were quite a number of locals here. Attractive church, worth a visit.
