St. Anne's Church, Vilnius
An ornate example of Gothic architecture within the historical city center, St. Anne's Church and its red brick spires represent one of Vilnius' most recognizable buildings. Originally constructed in 1500, the church survived multiple wars, conflicts, and 50 years of Soviet rule. Legend has it that the invading Napoleon found it so beautiful that he wished to send it brick-by-brick back to Paris for his own. Despite the outside, its interior is Baroque: keep an eye out for the ornate altar and carved wooden statues. Take in the sizeable stained-glass windows, high vaulted ceilings, and incorporation of the church's signature bricks into the arches themselves.

St. Anne's Church Reviews
旧市街を散策中に立寄りました。偶然に中に入った時に何らかの式が始まりったので最後尾の椅子に座り見学をしました。内容は分からなかったけど普段の生活環境とは全く違う厳粛な雰囲気を感じることができました。ただ、ドタバタと入って来て写真を騒々しく撮ったら無神経に出て行く多くの観光客が残念でした。 more »I stopped while strolling in the old town. I sat in the last chair because some kind of ceremony started when I entered the inside by chance. I did not know the contents, but I could feel a solemn atmosphere completely different from the usual living environment. However, I was sorry for many tourists who went out to callous when they came in with slapstick and took pictures loud.
нет, это не неоготика, многие авторы банально прошли мимо этого выдающегося места. самый настоящий готический пример архитектуры, коих совсем не много в виленском крае. одна из старейших улиц Вильнюса... more »No, it is not neo-Gothic, many authors banal passed by this outstanding place. A real Gothic example of architecture, which is not much in the Villenskoye region. One of the oldest streets of Vilnius, the ensemble of the restored Church of Bernardintsev will complement the impressions. And hiding behind the old door only and think of the hectic worldly
Very interesting architecture. You can visit inside also for free and take pictures. While walking around Vilnius old town you can’t miss this church anyways.
