Create an itinerary including Siauliai Saint Disciple Peter and Paul Cathedral
The Sts. Peter and Paul Cathedral (Šv. Apaštalų Petro ir Pauliaus katedra) also called Šiauliai Cathedral is a religious building of the Catholic Church that serves as the cathedral in Šiauliai, a city in the European country of Lithuania, and the seat of the diocese of Šiauliai.
The Church of Saints Peter and Paul was built in the seventeenth century, between 1617 and 1626, and is a significant example of the Renaissance and Mannerism. In 1880, lightning struck a tower, so it was necessary to make repairs. The most significant damage occurred after World War II. In 1944 the church was in a sorry state, but already during the Soviet era, the church was restored.
Simultaneously with the creation of the Diocese of Siauliai on May 28, 1997, the Church of Saints Peter and Paul was elevated to the status of cathedral by Pope John Paul II.

  • This church is really beautiful. The white of walls contrast with blue sky. Landscape is amazing. We were there about 8pm and the church was close but I’m very glad that I saw this historical place...
