It is said that there used to be nine gates, but now the only one left is the gate of dawn. There was a magnificent church on the side and a chapel at the gate of the city. Someone was praying. On the outside of the gate there is a Lithuanian badge, which is said to be the only place to see in the Soviet era.
Dawn Gate is the only old city gate of Vilnius, located in the south of the old city. It has a history of nearly 500 years. The Church of the Virgin Mary above the Dawn Gate is small and famous as the Black-faced Virgin Mary. This is the church where Pope Paul II once visited. Every morning and evening, many devout Catholics come to church to pray and participate in Mass.
The church is open to the public and can be seen from a distance in the street. The inside of the Dawn Gate is more beautiful than the outside. The interior decoration is very beautiful. It happens that some believers did not pray beside the image of the Virgin Mary when they entered.
When you walk through this place, you don't know that it is the dawn of dawn, that is, you feel crowded. When you look back in the past, you will know that because of its fame, just take a look. Anyway, it is the only way to go to the main street, as long as you go to the end of this main street, it is it (to the south?). My picture is the front and back of a door.
Vilnius's only old city gate, there is also a story about war. After arriving, I found that there was no trace of history, but I could enter the city gate free of charge from the side to see the Black-faced image of the Virgin Mary. Be careful not to wear overexposed clothes, make noise and use flash.
Very beautiful. Very special. You can see it from your head.
Lithuania Dawn Gate, also known as Sunrise Gate, is the ancient city gate of Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania. It was built in 1522 and plays a defensive role. In 1671, the Catholic priest built a small church on the gate to worship the image of the Virgin Mary, which is said to have extraordinary magic.
Dawn Gate, built in the 16th century, is the most well-preserved city gate in the region.
The weekend is suitable for families of all sizes. The scenic spots are still OK.
