New on 500px : Vilnius by roberto_pazzi by roberto_pazzi

The Cathedral of Vilnius is the main Roman Catholic Cathedral of Lithuania. It is situated in Vilnius Old Town, just off of Cathedral Square. Dedicated to Saints Stanislaus and Ladislaus, the church is the heart of Catholic spiritual life in Lithuania.
Inside, there are more than forty works of art dating from the 16th through 19th centuries, including frescoes and paintings of various sizes. During the restoration of the Cathedral a fresco dating from the end of the 14th century, the oldest known fresco in Lithuania, was found on the wall of one of the cathedral’s underground chapels.
During the Soviet regime initially cathedral was converted into a warehouse. Masses were celebrated again starting in 1985, although the cathedral was still officially called “The Gallery of Images” at that time. In 1989, its status as a cathedral was restored.
