Saints Peter and Paul Church, Vilnius, Lithuania

peter paul church vilnius lithuaniaWe were warned that when we came to Vilnius, Lithuania that we should be prepared for Baroque overload. Well this is it. Saints Peter and Paul are, of course, probably the most important saints in the Roman Catholic Church. And the Saints Peter and Paul church's surfeit of decoration certainly gives them their due.

We had a three hour walking tour of Vilnius, thanks to the marvelous Ele Pranaityte, and three hours is nowhere near enough. For example, we didn't get out of the center of the Old Town, and that means we didn't see Saints Peter and Paul. However, Ele made us promise that we'd make the half hour trek (or five-minute bus ride) to the site. I think her exact words were, “If you don't go see Saints Peter and Paul Church, I will hunt you down.”

So, Ele won't have to hunt us down. And I'm glad for that, because if the evidence of her learning and preparation as demonstrated on the tour are any indication, we'd be dead ducks. If you come to Vilnius, you should definitely hire her for an introductory tour. You can reach her via email at elepranaityte
