Vilnius Cathedral represents the center of Catholic faith in Lithuania and serves as one of Vilnius' most notable buildings, particularly since it is also the resting place of the country's patron saint, St. Casimir. Built in 1783, the cathedral underwent a period of renewal after Lithuania's independence and nowadays has been restored to its former glory. Its entrance, complete with massive columns, statues, and a tower, dominates the surrounding square. Explore the cavernous interior of the church, decorated with carved-stonework ceilings, moldings, and murals. View the metal tomb of St. Casimir, one of the centerpieces of the structure. Don't miss the chance to visit the underground chapels, dedicated to different figures and a site of worship dating back further than the building itself. Here you have the opportunity to see the oldest surviving fresco in Lithuania.

The main Cathedral in Vilnius. Looks more impressive from outside than from inside. Remains one of must-see places in Vilnius.
