Very interesting church - information board tells how it was taken over by various conquerors who each removed the preceding imagery or symbols. Look for the dove that replaced the russian emblem.

St. Michael's stand stately, anchoring one end of Laisves Avenue. You could tell this was once a centerpiece, but is sadly in need of outside restoration.

The church is nicer on the outside than on the inside. But still it's worth a visit - there is plenty to see. I was intrigued at how bloody the paintings inside are. It is a quiet, pleasant place, so respect the people praying while...More

It looks a bit run down on the outside, but this church that stands at the center of the new town of Kaunas is interesting and well worth stopping to see. Originally an Orthodox church, this now Catholic church continues to have a layout associated...More

This church at the rare of Laisves Boulevard is one of the most appealing churches in Kaunas. Especially it's beautiful from outside, but also I suggest to go inside at least to sit in silence for a couple of minutes.

Unfortunately we had no time to enter this church; we'll do it next time we come to Kaunas. Anyway, from the outside, it looks beautiful, also during the night, and is very centrally and strategically located.

The exterior is peeling badly and the interior, whilst very quiet and calm, is austere. This is a military church and due to the historical background of the military in this region, it is understandable why it is like it is.
