  Šv. Jono
by Carletto76
 
 

This was one of the first Roman Catholic churches built in Lithuania, at the end of the 14th century, in gothic style.
The church was held by the fathers Jesuits from the 16th and became part of the University complex. Quite little of the originary gothic style is still there nowadays, but it's still one of the most beautiful churches in Vilnius.
The bell tower of St. John's church was built in 1571 and is even higher than the Cathedral's (68 m).
Inside the church there is also a small museum

Address: Šv. Jono g. 12
