The Russian Orthodox St. Nicolas' Church (Sv. Mikalojaus Cerkve) was the first church which really drew my attention on our first evening in Vilnius.

It was built in Gothic style in 1514, but burnt down in the 18th century. In 1845 it was restored in late baroque style and Russian Byzantine elements were added later during a russification programme.

Directions:
The Russian Orthodox St. Nicolas' Church is located at Rotuses aikste (Town Hall
Square) right in the heart of Vilnius' city centre. It shouldn't be mixed up with the Catholic St. Nicolas Church which is Lithuania's oldest Church.

Address:
St. Nicolas' Church, Didzioji gatve 12, Vilnius
