Looks good from the outside, but walk in, and wow. The most beautiful ornamentation inside. Unique in its colours and composition. Choose a service here and listen to the choral harmonies. Beautiful.

This is a cute church, very different than the rest of the churches in Vilnius. The steeple is very distinctive. Well worth a stop in as well as a photo op outside!
