Unlike some other reviewers, I actually thought that the interior was lovely and tastefully done. If you are tired of the really ornate Orthodox cathedrals, this could be a nice change of pace. St. Casimir's chapel is a must see.

good for a short visit, the place has a very interesting history, especially after the war, generally does not look like a standard Cathedral

This cathedral is worth a visit but it's nice nearly as impressive as other cathedrals elsewhere. In a very large open square area just north of Old Town with the Palace of the Grand Dukes right behind it.

This cathedral is a landmark for the city. I found the external part, especially the front, very interesting. Internally, it is very simple when compared with typical churches or cathedrals in cities all around central and western Europe. The area around is very interesting, including parks, other city landmarks, squares, cafes, bars and restaurants.

The cathedral steeped in history. Beautiful architecture and well worth a tour round. Be sure not to miss the little church areas within the catherdral and maybe tour the crypt.

Far less ornate than I am accustomed to so strolled around for 10 minutes and was done. Free to enter.

One of the least interesting if most uninteresting cathedrals in Europe. This neoclassical building was rebuilt and little remains of the past. Scant historical value. The building just doesn't have any character or sense of place.

Do not expect too much on historical and architecture values, you would have a wonderful time chilling with your accompanies. Remember to see underground chapels, bell tower, Stebuklas: the miracle stone
