I visited Vilnius this weekend and I will do a small Vilnius guide for you later... but first I had to do a post about Vilnius Cathedral, one of the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. I mean, just look? 

Some info about it. Vilnius Cathedral is among the most beautiful cathedrals in the world. It is a classical masterpiece of the capital city of Lithuania. Although during the long course of history Vilnius Cathedral was repeatedly destroyed and burned, until now it proudly stands in the very heart of Vilnius Old Town, at the Gediminas hill slope, and is the most important Catholic shrine all over the country, and a place for the main Christian, ethnic and national festivities.

Its Neoclassical façade, created by architect Laurynas Gucevičius, boasts large columns and sculptures of the four Evangelists. On the roof stand three more sculptures: one of St.Casimir, one of St. Stanislas, and one of St. Helena holding a golden cross. The elegant symbol of Vilnius is accompanied by a free-standing bell tower which was once a part of the castle’s fortifications and marks where the river Vilia originally flowed. It’s one of Vilnius’ must-see sights!
