The church isn't particularly interesting but the crypt tour is excellent. You learn the history of those buried below the cathedral and about the rebuilding.

Didn't think this was the Cathedral we were advised to visit it looked more like a museum from the outside rather than a Cathedral. Once inside it was clearly a place of worship, it is quite beautiful so glad we went in.

I went for Mass at the Vilnius Cathedral. It is a spectacular place of worship. The building was full for the 17:30 service, with standing room only available. Still, many worshipers joined throughout the entire time. I would encourage anyone to stop here.

The cathedral is a very impressive building in a great location. It's just at the bottom of pilles Street and a great place to start a walk around the old town.

The St Casmier Chapel was beautiful. The rest was plain. Its worth a visit and free to enter so you have nothing to loose. Lots of art inside the main hall and lovely sculptures outside.

Suppose to be a big attraction but nothing great inside compared to other churches in Vilnius. Exterior was great and got a long history.

The current Vilnius Cathedral dates to 1783, but earlier churches on this site go back to 1400s. Survived Soviet occupation as an art gallery. The base of the Bell Tower was part of the original city wall. Bricks in the square show an outline of...More
