Create an itinerary including St. Anne's Church
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.

  • I visited this church because from pictures of the outside I thought the inside would be gorgeous. Given its age, it was a bit underwhelming. Probably still worth a visit

  • The historical texture is very beautiful. Also, peaceful and impressive
  • I’m not sure what the fuss is about. It’s pretty enough from the outside (a street view is good enough) and the interior is pretty plain. Not worth the detour in my opinion.
