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.

New on 500px : No me olvides by Carlosmacr by Carlosmacr

I took this image 2 years ago, in one of the biggest lithuanian lakes by the sunset. It was the first time i visited that location and i really liked it. I visited that location few more times in different seasons, expecting to find that boat and taking different images with different sky/conditions. But didn’t find it anymore 🙂 Tomé esta fotografía hace dos años en uno de los lagos más grandes de Lituania. Era la primera vez que visitaba este lugar y me encantó. Visité el lugar varias veces más, en diferentes estaciones, esperando encontrar la barca y tomar así diferentes imágenes con diferente cielo y diferentes condiciones. Pero no la volví a ver 🙂
