St. Anne’s Church is one of the symbols of Vilnius and is located in the Old town. The present brick church was constructed in the late 15th century and the exterior of the church has remained almost unchanged since then. It was built using 33 different kinds of clay bricks and painted in red. St. Anne’s Church has been built in Flamboyant Gothic and Brick Gothic styles but the interior is decorated in the Baroque style, as is its altar.

Bernardine Church can often be overlooked as it stands just a bit behind of the impressive St.Anne’s Church. Go through the small gates crossing the yard and you’ll discover a Church having 14 magnificent rococo altars and the oldest known crucifix in the country, dating from the 15th century. The current vast Gothic church with Baroque and Renaissance additions dates from the early part of the 16th century onwards.
