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.
