St Peter and Paul's Church in Vilnius, Lithuania


St. Peter and Paul's Church in Vilnius, Lithuania is a Catholic Church and though it is outside of the Old Town, is a church that tourists frequently visit. While my family was visiting we decided to enjoy the nice fall weather and take a stroll to the church, which is located in the Antakalnis neighborhood. The exterior of the church is similar to other churches around Vilnius, but the interior is what makes it special. St. Peter and Paul's Church was built from 1668 - 1674, but the intricate interior took many more years to complete. The interior is completely white and covered with approximately 2000 stucco statues of historical religious figures.
