Vilniaus staciatikiu Sventosios Dvasios vienuolynas, Vilnius

4.6
Lithuania's most important Russian Orthodox church, the Baroque-styled Vilniaus staciatikiu Sventosios Dvasios vienuolynas sports a richly colored interior and the remains of three Orthodox saints. There has been a church here since 1567, but a series of events lead to the site's reconstruction in the mid-18th century. Inside, you can admire the detailed stucco work, sculptures, frescoes, and emerald green iconostasis. A reliquary in the center of the building is home to the remains of St. Anthony, St. Eustatius, and St. John, adorned with red robes on special occasions. Women attending a service may wish to bring a scarf to cover their head, as is customary.

Ensure however to respect all the rules of decorum (bareheaded for men, headdress for women. The old guard of the order who wanders around the bays took dryly as I had my hands in the pockets). A box in English recounts the lives of the saints whose relics are stored here in a special reliquary humm...

  • When going through the portal opens to a spacious garden with lawns and flower-tree plantings and a bit farther away church with church door against trädgånden. It's gravel paths among lawns and there was also a car parked there.
