Historically important place

One of the most important place to visit and very near to Hill of three crosses. The cathedral view was amazing and specially on sunny day.

The cathedral basement is full of 'secrets' and the basement is not opened for general public. We sign up for the guided tour from the clock tower at extra €3. Best decision ever because the basement is so interesting. Full of history and undiscovered secrets. Totally worth that 1 hour of your time.

Nice to take pictured from the outside. But nothing worth visiting inside. It is free though so just get in.

The place is a nice square and one of the worthwile places to visit in Vilnius. The square is of course crowded compared to other places but still less compared to other European cities

Possibly the most famous building in Vilnius Old Town. It is very impressive from the outside. Its Tower sightly resembles the leaning tower of Pisa. The Tower itself is worth a walk up. The interior isn't as impressive as the St Peter & St Paul's church but it is still nice all the same.

The Cathedral of Vilnius is a very big building, in a very vivid white. Along with its bell-tower and the square around, it is a must-see of Vilnius. Best view: approaching it walking down from Gedimino avenue. Inside, the Cathedral is not that wonderful, except for the chapel of Saint Casimir which is really worth a visit with its baroque...

the cathedral is located at a beautiful square and the tower looks very impressive. The cathedral from the outside looks a bit like a temple more than a cathedral. It is peaceful and invites to contemplation worth a visit

I really enjoyed a visit to Vilnius Cathedral one of the first things I did on my visit to the city. It is very centrally located in a square at the end of Gediminas Prospectas adjacent to the Old Town and close to the Gediminas Tower, Castle and Hill of Crosses. There has been a church here since the 13th... More

Worth visiting and going inside to see all the beautiful art. Side entry gives access to the main transept and to the rear of the altar which has smaller decorative alcoves off. Very interesting.
