Church of Holy Spirit Has a very stunning interior and therefore worth the time. Unfortunately It is forbidden to take photographs inside.

You enter the church through a passage, so from the outside it looks quite ordinary, however the interior is astonishing. I was amazed that Hugh B says it is an Orthodox Cathedral, its a Dominican Church, and one of the highlights of what to see...More

06 July, 2017. I was walking through the Old Town of Vilnius on 06 July, 2017. This was a national holiday, The crowning of Mindaugas, and there was a festive spirit everywhere. Unfortunately, a lot of places were closed as well, at least at the...More

Important church in history of Vilnius at the time of conversion from paganism to Christianity- 3 martyred saints lie in a casket preserved here. They are linked to the Basilian Church not far away. The one who had them put to death eventually converted to...More

The structure is magnificent. I especially loved the bright, forest green altar. Don't miss it. It is the most glorious orthodox church in Vilnius in my opinion

Pretty church with intricate details on the main altar, but the main sight to see is surely the case that holds the bodies of three saints inside of it. Free to enter and worth taking a look, there are restrooms nearby as well.

Ornate church with the revered remains of 3 saints (anton being one). The opulence and work that must have gone into the building shows the influence the church has. Very similar to other grand churches

In a city full of ornate churches, The Holy Spirit may be the most over-the-top Baroque of them all. The cavernous entryway from the street (with its dark and faded murals of eath and decay) don't prepare you for the gilded, kitschy grandeur of the...More

Entrance to the church is just a door from the Domininkonu street. When entering, one has to pass dark, somewhat scary, cavern-like corridor with first welcoming picture that of death. Then you enter the stunningly rich Baroque interior of the church: as it was comparatively...More
