Christ's Resurrection Church

  Žemaičių 31b      (+370) 37 22 92 22     21 Aug 2019

This extraordinary white Art Deco church towering over the city came about through an idea for a Catholic house of worship in praise of Lithuanian independence in 1922. Work began over a decade later to a design by the Latvian architect Kārlis Reisons (1894-1981) who was also responsible for the city’s Vytautas the Great Military Museum, although it wasn’t finished and consecrated until 2004 having first been used as a warehouse by the Nazis and then as a radio factory by the Soviets. The main tower reaches 70m into the heavens and the plain but strangely moving interior has enough room for 3,000 worshippers. A trip to the roof is highly recommended.
