vilnius, the capital of lithuania, is famous for its wealth of baroque (and other) churches. it is said that no matter where you are in the city, you will always see the steeples of at least three churches ...

once again, the cathedral basilica of st. stanilsaus and st. vladislav, the main roman catholic church of lithuania. this triptych shows (a) the rather demure nave and the altar, (b) a view into the cupola, with its elaborate stucco decorations and the contrasting colourful paintings, and (c) a view into one of the two flanking aisles, again with its white stucco decor.

for more information on the cathedral see yesterday's post.

thank you for your visits, comments and advice! they're very much appreciated!
