Joy of All Who Sorrow Church

  Laisvės Aikštė 2     18 Apr 2019
Originally built between 1861 and 1865, this diminutive blue wooden building is delightful, both inside and out. When you've finished gaping in wonder at the exterior (unfortunately the glazed cupolas can’t be visited) go through the main door and be astonished at the sheer splendour of the array of icons and religious paintings scattered throughout. The church was completely renovated towards the end of the Soviet occupation with the assistance of experts from the Heritage Museum in St. Petersburg.
