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.

This is a must see location. The cathedral is beautiful and very well-maintained. Church services are usually in Lithuanian but sometimes in Latin. Terrific choir and organ. No restrooms but there are plenty nearby. It is right in the center of the city and restaurants and shopping are very available nearby.

We are locals, so visit Cathedral and its lovely square on regular basis - it's a lovely place for a walk. This year Christmas tree is different again and market is worth a visit. Dutch waffles are absolutely delicious!

Vilnius Cathedral is situated in Cathedral Square. Beautiful building. It is free to go inside and have a look and pray.

It does not matter if you believe in God or not - this place has something spiritual. Even in ancient times it was a place for pagan temple, so if you are able to visit this white beauty - don't miss this opportunity. The best way is to pre-order guided tours (they can show you tumbs under Cathedral and tell... More

The cathedral is beautiful from a distance and has a lovely setting. When you go inside it is a little disappointing. Whilst the chapel of Casimir is beautiful and unique the rest of the cathedral is disappointing. When we visited the lighting was poor and two of the major chapels were not lit at all. The result is you could... More
