Church of St Ann, Vilnius: 39 reviews and 69 photos

by matcrazy1

There were two identical bay windows in the facade of St. Ann's church in Vilnius. Bay windows (windows that project outward, supported by corbels) were characteristic of many gothic public and private houses, not only of churches and chapels. Sometimes they were called oriel windows as well, right?

I wonder when the first bay windows were built? Never mind, they are widely used till now as they enlarge a room's appearance and add character and charm to any room.
