Churches, Vilnius: 12 reviews and 12 photos

These sliver domes on my picture belonged to Vilnius Orthodox Church which I could easy see from the above: from a top of Gediminas Hill, from my hotel room and from viewing platform of TV tower. As they looked beutiful from up I decided to find and visit this, indeed interesting for me, church.

The church, called Znamienska Orthodox Church, was built in 1903. It was interesting that looking from Gedimono prospectas (boulevard) this church closed a view towards the west while Roman catholic cathedral closed the view towards the east. Shouldn't they be located in reverse order? To get there from the parliament building you must cross a bridge over Neris river and turn first street right (Vytauto gatve), the entrance was on the right.
