Lithuania - Vilnius Historic Centre
A view of the Churches of St. Michael, St. Anne and the Bernadines (16th - 18th century), part of Vilnius Historic Centre, a UNESCO WHS.
Sent by Violeta from Kaunas in Lithuania.
Vilnius is an outstanding example of a medieval foundation which exercised a profound influence on architectural and cultural developments in a wide area of Eastern Europe over several centuries. In the townscape and the rich diversity of buildings that it preserves, Vilnius is an exceptional illustration of a central European town that evolved organically over five centuries.
