The Cathedral of St. Stanislav and St. Vladislav is the most important place of worship for Lithuania’s Catholics, and the venue for the country’s main Christian and national festivities #vilnius #lithuania
In 1922, the Cathedral was granted the title of ‘Basilica’, by Pope Pius X
The imposing Vilnius Cathedral is the most charming religious centre in this small Eastern European town and the most romantic landmark in the city. A clean white appearance, six huge stone pillars stand in front of the main hall. Right in front of the church, there is also a tall white tower, above the black tower, a cross stands upright.
Walk by the Vilnius Old Town, it takes only a few minutes to reach the Church Square. Vilnius Cathedral is located in the heart of the entire square. This imposing cathedral, the most fascinating exterior, is the three statues on the front. The goddess of Santa Ana in the middle holds the sacred cross. On the left side of St. Stanislav and the right side of San Casilas, overlooking the church, you can see three majestic statues, and feel the power of divine greatness.
This church is also one of the oldest churches in Vilnius. As early as 800 years ago, a wooden church was built here. Later it was converted into a more spectacular Gothic church. However, the church was unfortunately destroyed by the war. Today's church is where people built the imposing Baroque church today.
This great church, conservative and hardship, has been rebuilt and finally ushered in today's glory and prosperity. Walking into the interior of the church, it is extremely magnificent, showing many ancient watercolor murals, which are very magnificent.
This is not only the central place for people's religious activities, but also the beautiful wishes of the people. After many hardships, we will welcome the beautiful life today. The Vilnius people know how to cherish.
