Trakai

Church of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary

  Birutės 5     20 May 2019

A church of one sort or another has stood on this site since 1409, with the usual history of fires and wars paving the way for additions and reconstructions over the centuries. The building’s current Baroque form dates from 1717, and of particular note inside is the 16th-century painting on the main altar, the Blessed Virgin Mary with Child, known as the Trakai Madonna, which is reputed to have magic powers.
