Inspirock Rating:
4.7/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web
An ornate example of Gothic architecture within the historical city center, St. Anne's Church and its red brick spires represent one of Vilnius' most recognizable buildings. Originally constructed in 1500, the church survived multiple wars, conflicts, and 50 years of Soviet rule. Legend has it that the invading Napoleon found it so beautiful that he wished to send it brick-by-brick back to Paris for his own. Despite the outside, its interior is Baroque: keep an eye out for the ornate altar and carved wooden statues. Take in the sizeable stained-glass windows, high vaulted ceilings, and incorporation of the church's signature bricks into the arches themselves.

  • I advise to visit. Will see that the temple is interesting both outside and inside. Without this understanding of temple architecture of Vilnius will be defective.

  • Lovely from the outside and on the inside. Very busy with weddings on the weekend so be aware that you may not be able to get inside. 
  • For sure the most beautiful church in Vilnius, from the original façade, in different types of red bricks

  • One of most beautyfull gothic ansambles in Vilnius old town left from 16th century. Legend does say that Napoleon was so amazed of the church of saint Ann, that wanted to take it on the palm of his hand to Paris.
