This building is not unique in the world. It is pretty but not extraordinary. Drop by, observe and take a rest.

The stunning Gothic St. Anne Church (most beautiful in Vilnius - see my review on it) is the prime reason you came there. It stands frontally on the street and from the small square in front of it, the Bernardine Church looks like an annex or part of it. In fact, the Bernardine Church is a 15 cent Catholic church...

Adjacent and slightly behind St. Anne's is Bernardine Church. Another spectacular church, one can not help but be impressed with the intricate carved detail. Attention should also be paid to the frescos. The ceiling is another magnificent feature with its molding against a white back ground. Originally founded by the Bernardine Monks in the 15th century, it was part of... More

The Church of St. Francis and St. Bernard (also known as Bernardine Church) is a Roman Catholic church in the Old Town of Vilnius, Lithuania. It is located next to St. Anne's Church. Dedicated to Saints Francis of Assisi and Bernardino of Siena, it is an important example of Gothic architecture in Lithuania

It stands right next to St Anne's Cathedral, so you won't surely miss it. The inside of this church is quite impressive - a lot of works on carved wood.

The Bernardine Church with its open-door and open courtyard before entering the church gave a very welcoming atmosphere. Next to the more famous enough St. Anne Cathedral, this church stand in the cathedral's shadow. However both places are worth the time to see them in detail and pay the proper respect as the places of worship.

When visiting the picturesque St. Anne (pronounced Anna in Europe) red brick Baroque church, I spied another of different architectural design to the right and behind. The full name is Church of St. Francis from Assisi (Bernardine). It was designed for prayer, and surprisingly, defense. There are 19 aleois in the northern façade. The Gothic pointed-arch windows and buttresses protrude... More

Small Gothic masterpiece in Vilnius Old Town, must see place for all tourists, not sure that the church is open all the time.

The Bernardine Church is located right behind St. Anne's. While the exterior is not as impressive as St. Anne's, you get the best when you go inside the church. Modern (such as the St. Francis statue) and old stand side by side.

Adjacent to St Anna's the two are both worth a visit. Thet are also near the gardens of the same name. The highlighted photo shows both churches with St Bernardine on the right.
