One of the main attractions

worth a visit but like many places in Vilnius it doesn't take long to look around. The area outside is also worth a visit.

Beautiful and unique neoclassical, late 18th century church built on the foundations of earlier cathedrals dating back to the 13th century. Wonderful light inside and very accessible.

Not just a tourist attraction, the Cathedral and the square around it are a busy part of Vilnius. Plan an hour or two to visit and linger outside, specially if there's a concert or event during your visit. Not too different from lots of other roman catholic cathedral's around Europe but still has it's own imposing charm.

It's one of a kind but nothing special about this Basilica. However it's still worth to visit while you're in Vilnius. All churches can't be the same when it comes to architectural design.

Arkikatedra Bazilika is situated in the centre of Vilnius. It's one of the main attractions, built as pagan temple, latter converted to Catholic Church, nearby you can find small park where at certan place you can produce echo from your voice (must true, ask local for the certan point)

Beautiful building worth to see. You will pass it anyway traveling through the Old City. Impressive photos could be taken. There is a large square nearby - a place for concerts and other attractions in festive days. As ther square is REALLY big - you can stroll there with a bit of comfort.

A gorgeous square featuring an impressive belfry and beautiful cathedral buildings. The plaza has beautiful tile and one very special tile hidden between the main structures!

This is not just a must, but also hard to avoid. Outside more impressive than inside. There is live music at 19:18 each night from the bell Tower to get ready for the 100 anniversary of Independence (?)
