Belfry in Cathedral Square, Vilnius: 17 reviews and 23 photos


The Cathedral's imposing bell tower is 57 m tall and was built on top of the Lower Castle defensive tower. Its earliest underground part dates back to the 13th century and was constructed on the bottom of the old riverbed. The first round tier comes from the second half of the 14th century, while the next one was built in the 17th century and a clock made in Germany by Joseph Bergman installed on it. The belfry owes its present shape to the 1801 reconstruction.
