Vilniaus staciatikiu Sventosios Dvasios vienuolynas, Vilnius

(4.6/5 based on 240+ 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.

  • It is considered the main Orthodox Church in Lithuania, built in honour of the Holy Spirit on the Apostles. Built in the late 16 century means spouse two Governor-Smolensk and Brest. Subsequently, the temple was destroyed and rebuilt many times. One of the complete devastation-in 1812 year by the French. The last reconstruction took place in early 90-ies.

  • History of the Orthodox faith in Lithuania is inconceivable without Vilnius Orthodox brotherhood and the main temple of the monastery of the Holy Spirit-amazing and touching atmosphere of the Cathedral. The relics of the first Saints Vilna-Anthony, John and Eustache.
