4.6/5 based on 200+ 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.

  • The Orthodox Church so Dunhuang Navigator or try this altar was used to seeing I'm in, I was surprised. Green! Made of green is used, such as white, gold, and silver. Also the ceiling is not in white or pink light blue base, anyway I felt richer color. Is done before the altar of the three Saints is more than 600 years ago, so I think that was very small. And beautifully dressed, and felt so divine. It was often surprised by sculptures such as a little unusual but Church. Entrance gate in a pink lovely, pale yellow is at the entrance of the Church. Everywhere were filled with color.
