Vilniaus staciatikiu Sventosios Dvasios vienuolynas, Vilnius
(4.6/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Orthodox Church of the Holy Spirit and the monastery originally appeared at this place in the 16-th century. The Church itself in the modern form was built in the 17-18 centuries. and is a unique architectural monument of Lithuanian Baroque style. Well, times of Baroque, there is something to see, especially inside, all very flamboyantly looks. The Church is quite an interesting 18-century iconostasis in the crypt-the remains of Orthodox Saints. In this part of Vilnius just concentration of interesting places-Radom Church St. Theresa and Otsrobramskie gates with a unique icon. All it is convenient to view simultaneously.

  • Very ineteressante and spiritual Church. There is an air of mystical contemplation. It will be also the presence of the bodies of the three look a total kept therein which confer sacredness to this church. Very nice green main altar. Not to be missed.
