Vilnius Cathedral (Arkikatedra Bazilika) Tours

60 reviews
Vilnius Cathedral (Arkikatedra Bazilika)

Vilnius Cathedral - or Arkikatedra Bazilika - can trace its history back to the 13th century when the Lithuanian King Mindaugas built the original cathedral in 1251.

Having been burnt down and rebuilt several times over the years, the cathedral’s final reconstruction is in the neoclassical style (1801) according to the design of Laurynas Gucevicius.

Under Soviet occupation, the cathedral was used as a garage and several statues were destroyed. It has undergone several restorations since that time and its elegant colonnaded façade, ornate interior and 57m-(187ft) tall belfry, continue to stand proud as a symbol of the country’s Catholic faith.

Practical Info

Vilnius Cathedral is in bustling Cathedral Square, at the base of Gediminas Hill in the Old Town.

NEW TO VIATOR

The Majestic and Royal Vilnius Walking Tour

Vilnius was born from the dream of Great duke Gediminas. It became the capital city and the main residence of all rulers of Grand Duchy of Lithuania. The manor of the Great Duke was located here. Vilnius was the place where life was in full swing, the place where music played and swords clashed, even messengers from all foreign countries stayed in here. During this tour you will be told about how Gediminas cleverly took care of the well- being of the capital, what innovations were brought by the queen Bona. Why Vladislav Vasa’s heart remained in Vilnius forever, what was the contribution of Steponas Batoras in Vilnius education, and why “Kaziukas Fair” rocks the city every year.
