WILNIUS
The Ensamble of St Anne’s Churches.

This is one of the peculiarities of Old Town's architecture. The beginning of the ensemble near the Lower Castle dates back to 15th century when in 1462 the Bernardines came to Vilnius. Two churches and a monastery constitute this Gothic composition. The churches are joined and are seen as one in front of the other. The way they are situated creates original views. The northern monastery buildings include two courtyards, which are connected with an arched entrance. The peculiarity of the ensemble is the smali StAnne's Church. It was built of stone in thelate 15th century. The church is the most famous late Gothic building in Lithua-nia and has a complex composition of decorations. Thirty-three types of profile bricks were used for decoration. Vertical lines dominate the interior of the church. The presbytery is decorated with a vault. One of the most beautiful parts of the interior is the restored organ choir.
