This cathedral sits set back on the square and stands out. Incredibly beautiful baroque masterpiece. The bell tower is separate and makes it very unique

Do not expect the richness in decor of central and Southern European churches. However, it is rich with history and the stark decor has its own charm and appeal. A must visit.

The cathedral occupies the prime location in Vilnius, unsurprisingly. Its exterior is very classical and un-church-like. The interior is resplendent but, for me, not particularly exciting. Other visitors may feel differently

The cathedral itself is beautiful, but its treasure is its crypt. Take the tour and see the Royal Mausoleum, see what the archaeologists have discovered, and see the original floor of the church.

1st time visitor, killing some time, wondered over to have a closer look, I am not particularly interested in religious buildings, but this was not only impressive, fully in use, the art work inside was breathtaking

This building is stunning, looks more like a museum or government building from the outside and the detached bell tower is unusual. I like that it is fronted by a big open plaza.The inside is well worth looking at, excellent sculptures and pictures

This "arch"cathedral is a must see in Vilnius. The outside alone is impressive with beautiful columns and sculptures. Inside, in addition to the beautiful main altar it contains numerous chapels along the outside of the main hall including St. Casimir's at the front right which...More
