Considered perhaps the pinnacle of Baroque church architecture in Lithuania, Church Of St Peter And St Paul offers visitors the chance to see a wealth of ornate decoration and more than 2,000 carved stucco figures. Finished in 1701, the church and its grounds are ringed by a high wall and several smaller chapels. Enter the main basilica to see its brilliant white interior replete with reliefs, paintings, and columns. Wander inside and explore the different chapels, connected along the perimeter of the building with a series of aisles. Watch for the skeletal statue of Death, a grim reminder of mortality included by the designers of the church, placed among statues of Jesus and other religious figures.

After walking from the St. Anne’s church to the Tower then walk down like 10 minutes, it was located in a Y like road and it is beautifully located at the center. more »
It is impressive what they have done in this church. It is full os details, from the floor until up to the ceiling. It was planned and built in a way to provide a really good acoustic environment. The lights are also another outstanding point about this church. When all of them are on, it is just amazing. I strongly recommend you to go there and see what they have.
Enchanting church with interesting surroundings such as the Mountain View Stadium and Stage, Hill of the Three Crosses. Worth the walk to witness the continuing pull of Christianity in modern Lithuania.
