The Orthodox Church of St. Parasceve (Pyatnickaya) was the first church in Vilnius which was made of stone. It was built in 1345 on the site of a pagan temple.
In 1705, the African prince Abram Petrovich Gannibal who is the great-grandfather of Alexander Pushkin was batised here.
After major fire damage in WWII, the church was completely reconstructed in 1949. During the Soviet era it was used as a museum of painting.
