The Church of St Anne

Arguably Vilnius' most well-known historic church stands on the outskirts of the Old Town. Its red brick gothic styled exterior was first constructed in 1500 and has only had minor alterations and changes in the following 600 years. Unlike many around it, including the Bernadine Monastery immediately behind it, it survived a number of wars and fires unscathed. Most famously, Napoleon expressed his desire to transport the beautiful small church to Paris due to its grand and somewhat unusual style.

The interior of the church suffered considerably during the course of the 20th century and is almost entire reconstructed. This, however, does not take away from its beauty and serenity. The feeling of peace and calm in the quiet nave allows people of all faiths to take a few minutes to connect with their spirituality.
