Church of Sts. Philip & Jacob

  Vasario 16-osios 11      (+370) 52 12 46 11     more than a year ago
Built on the site of an earlier wooden church dating from 1624, like most houses of worship in the former Soviet Union, this one, which was constructed at the end of the 17th century, has had something of an interesting life. Used to store fruit and vegetables until to collapse of the USSR and with a hospital located inside the adjoining Dominican monastery, the church is now fully restored and worth having a look at if you’re in the area. The church also boasts a 61-bell carillon, the largest in the Baltics, which plays regularly and that is the focus of an annual summer carillon festival.
