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

by matcrazy1

Principle entrances in Gothic style buildings are often recessed and arched. Just one example on my picture of St. Anne's church, although not the most typical for gothic, I think. As I know the pointed arch is the main identifiable feature of Gothic architecture (distinct from the round arch of the Romanesque period). Hmm... the arches of the entrance of St. Ann's church were not at all pointed.

I paid attention to heavy entrance gate/doors as well. They were forged in metal and very decorative.
