The Vilnius Cathedral is one of the most significant religious icons for the Roman Catholic citizens of Vilnius and also for the general populate. It was particularly important during the medieval era, when the coronation of the Grand Dukes used to take place within the cathedral. It is also the burial place for eminent personalities of Lithuanian history, especially its rulers. Various artworks like frescoes, paintings, sculptures and ornaments adorn the inside of the church and help in further glorifying its beauty.
- The view from the top of the bell tower is astounding.

Magnificent mother church of the archdiocese of Vilnius. The chapel of St Casimir (where the saint's remains are interred over the altar) is especially stunning. Be sure to go up the bell tower for a great view. In the bell tower, you can get tickets for a tour of the crypts beneath the cathedral. This is one of the best tours you can get in Vilnius!
it was a shame that the front was covered in scaffolding when we visited but the interior made up for it. It is a very grand high ceiling building in white which is very inspiring. Quiet and peaceful even with lots of tourists coming to visit as well as locals worshipping
With the outside covered in scaffolding the Vilnius cathedral still evokes a grand scale. The building and it’s history are old. There are foundations of former pagan temples, a crypt with famous polish and Lithuanian aristocracy and its current neoclassical architecture sort hides this antiquity. The cathedral is dedicated in part to St. Stanislaw and St. Ladislaus. Just outside is cathedral square and city bell tower.
Vilnius Cathedra is truly beautiful outside, inside or rather interesting but not spectacular.
Good tourist destination and adjacent to the Christmas market!
