Sometimes, there are places that don’t feature in the top list of attractions for a certain city. However, they offer an equally beautiful insight into the traditions and culture of that city. The Orthodox Church of St. Paraskeva is a quaint little Eastern Orthodox church in Vilnius that was built on the request of prince Algirdas' first wife, princess Maria, who was eventually buried here in 1346. After a series (like WWII) of destructions, this church was renovated to hold a gallery of Lithuanian folk art under the Stalinist Government and today is consecrated as an auxiliary church of the Cathedral of the Theotokos. Paradoxically, a Museum of Atheism was supposed to be opened here (of course under Stalin), but didn’t. Do visit it for a spiritual session.
