This church is located near the other Orthodox church St Paraskeva. This church has also been devastated many times and built again. Last time it was remodeled in the Russian Byzantine style. However, a number of Gothic elements remained in the facade and interior.

Looks good from the outside, but walk in, and wow. The most beautiful ornamentation inside. Unique in its colours and composition. Choose a service here and listen to the choral harmonies. Beautiful.

This is a cute church, very different than the rest of the churches in Vilnius. The steeple is very distinctive. Well worth a stop in as well as a photo op outside!
