Cathedral is in center of old town. When I saw it at first I thought that it was not amazing. There are many churches over there however, when I was going inner place it was marvelous. You must see it.

Although not the most spectacular cathedral we've been to on our travel it is still well worth a visit. The area where the cathedral is as well is pretty good with many other attractions to see.

The location of this Cathedral is definitely a must-see for tourist. There are a lot of attractions surrounded by this building including the city main square where people hangout during New Year celebration.

The boys choir during the mass on Sunday added to the atmosphere. The mass is well visited by local people so please be aware of that during your visit. The white big construction was a bit too new for me, or feels to clean.

A really lovely church to visit. The outside is as much Roman temple as it is a curch but the thumping big cross on top leaves you in no doubt that it is a church. Lovely inside too. Worth visiting.

This is the perfect place to be especially in summer. Being there you can feel that city is alive - there are a lot of people passing by, children are playing or riding bikes and skateboards, friends are drinking coffee. It is a huge space so everybody here fits perfectly together.

Must visit. I went on a Sunday when they had a sermon. The cathedral was full of people. The architecture of the building is amazing and clean.

Beautiful classical cathedral in the heart of Vilnius. Just right near King's palace (now museum) Highly recommended to visit to have a look and/or to pray.... Don't forget Cathedral caves, it is place of rest - Lithuanian Dukes and Queen.

A must to take pictures. Beautiful architecture design. Went with kids and old mother. Although we were not able to enter, the cathedral could be admired from the outside. I have lovely photos taken after christmas 2016.
