Beautiful inside and out

A really lovely church to visit. The outside is as much Roman temple as it is a curch but the thumping big cross on top leaves you in no doubt that it is a church. Lovely inside... read more

The location of this Cathedral is definitely a must-see for tourist. There are a lot of attractions surrounded by this building including the city main square where people hangout during New Year celebration.

The boys choir during the mass on Sunday added to the atmosphere. The mass is well visited by local people so please be aware of that during your visit. The white big construction was a bit too new for me, or feels to clean.

This is the perfect place to be especially in summer. Being there you can feel that city is alive - there are a lot of people passing by, children are playing or riding bikes and skateboards, friends are drinking coffee. It is a huge space so everybody here fits perfectly together.

Must visit. I went on a Sunday when they had a sermon. The cathedral was full of people. The architecture of the building is amazing and clean.

Beautiful classical cathedral in the heart of Vilnius. Just right near King's palace (now museum) Highly recommended to visit to have a look and/or to pray.... Don't forget Cathedral caves, it is place of rest - Lithuanian Dukes and Queen.

A must to take pictures. Beautiful architecture design. Went with kids and old mother. Although we were not able to enter, the cathedral could be admired from the outside. I have lovely photos taken after christmas 2016.

This is a must see location. The cathedral is beautiful and very well-maintained. Church services are usually in Lithuanian but sometimes in Latin. Terrific choir and organ. No restrooms but there are plenty nearby. It is right in the center of the city and restaurants and shopping are very available nearby.

We are locals, so visit Cathedral and its lovely square on regular basis - it's a lovely place for a walk. This year Christmas tree is different again and market is worth a visit. Dutch waffles are absolutely delicious!

Vilnius Cathedral is situated in Cathedral Square. Beautiful building. It is free to go inside and have a look and pray.
