Places to visit in Vilnius. Languages: ru, he, en

Unusual perspective of the Cathedral of St.. Francis of Assisi. Once, becoming part of the original defensive walls of the city and built on the site of an earlier wooden church, the cathedral, dating from the mid-15th century, was built by order of Bernadi monks. The modern cathedral, reborn after Lithuania’s independence, includes 14 magnificent rococo altars and the oldest known crucifix in the country, dating back to the 15th century. The neighboring monastery is the oldest part of the ensemble. He was famous for his extensive library and independent monks. This was one of the reasons why the monastery was closed shortly after the unsuccessful uprising against the Russian Empire in 1863 and turned into a barracks for the tsarist troops.
