I loved this part of town. Make sure to get a pic of the church from the bridge towards Uzipus and include the little mermaid. That external image to me was the best part of it.

Church of the Holy Mother of God is located at Maironio 12. It is a beautiful Russian Orthodox church well worth a visit.

This church is so different from all the others. As soon as I saw it, I thought it looked just like Bratislava Castle! It's not as impressive inside as some of the others, but still worth a stop.

The church is nice to look at from outside but without an impressive interior. Coming to know that it is an Orthodox church and comparing it to the likes of Alexander Nevski in Sofia for example it becomes even less impressive. However, the church has a lot of history and dates back in its origins to the fourteenth century.

From the exterior, I assumed that this was an Armenian Orthodox church, but it's not. That's not why I'm giving it the 3-stars though--I'm giving it a "meh" score, because the inside is pretty "meh." It's beautiful, but it's like a lot of other Orthodox churches. So, if you've seen a lot of Orthodox churches, you can skip the interior... More

The church is really grand;a beautiful exterior and a really nice interior,very calm and peaceful inside the church. Initially we had been sat in the cafe across the river ,there was a wedding ceremony taking place but by the time... More

Nice church right in the surroundings of Uzupis Republic. Nicer in the outside than in the inside, still worth to see. Not easy to be found open!
