Church Of St Peter And St Paul, Vilnius

4.7
Considered perhaps the pinnacle of Baroque church architecture in Lithuania, Church Of St Peter And St Paul offers visitors the chance to see a wealth of ornate decoration and more than 2,000 carved stucco figures. Finished in 1701, the church and its grounds are ringed by a high wall and several smaller chapels. Enter the main basilica to see its brilliant white interior replete with reliefs, paintings, and columns. Wander inside and explore the different chapels, connected along the perimeter of the building with a series of aisles. Watch for the skeletal statue of Death, a grim reminder of mortality included by the designers of the church, placed among statues of Jesus and other religious figures.

  • Or jump on a bus! :) Lovely interior, the work that must have gone into the walls and ceilings is beyond my comprehension! well worth visiting.  more »
  • located a bit far away from the OLD Town (4-5 bus stops), but this is a must-see if one desire checking out the stunning cathedrals in Town.  more »

  • Don't think in terms of 'just another church' - this is something different! The ornate, white stucco work of the interior is quite mind-blowing in its intricacy. I have seen very many churches in my life, but none like this one. No description can do it justice - you owe it to yourself to go and see it!
  • The church is slightly away from the old town so it would be better to take the bus or trolley bus. If you really want to enjoy Baltic sub on a summer day, arrive on foot. That will take an hour. Inside, hanging down from the high ceiling is a ship-shaped decoration, which is quite rare. At the entrance there is an exhibition of Pope John Paul II in the time span between 1983 to 2005 in Lithuanian, Polish and English.
