Cathedral

Cathedral

The Cathedral is the most ancient cult construction of Lithuanian Christians. The Cathedral has been founded in 1251 on a place of a heathen temple to the god of a thunderstorm – Pyarkunas (Perun). In the altar parts of a temple there are the relics of the Lithuanian patron, Saint Casimir. There are also the frescos of the XIV century in the Cathedral, a unique icon “The Crucifixion” and the numerous holy vessels of the XIV-XX centuries kept.
