Travel Tips



From north to south

- The church of Lithuanian Martyrs of BerčiÅ«nai. The present-day church was built in 1997 following the design by the Architect Algis Šironas. There are fourteen stations of the Cross – wayside shrines made by craftsmen Adolfas Teresius, A. Varžinskas, M. BÅ«ga – leading from it to the old church’s foundations. A magnificent monument “The Resurrection of Christ” by the sculptor Antanas Kmieliauskas now stands on the ruins of the old church. A stained glass called “The Heart of Jesus” by Stasys Ušinskas, which was kept at the Krekenava church after the war, has been returned to the new church.

- Cathedral, in 1989 restored and reopened as cathedral (in Soviet times it was a gallery)
- St. Anna church, more beautiful than the cathedral. 
- In the chapel of the new building (1997) of the Catholic St. Joseph Seminary a mural by the Italian painter Valentino Vago from 1998. Address: Kalvarijų g. 325, Vilnius.
