based on an architectural plan by Michael Enkinger, but others think the design is the creation of Benedikt Rejt. You view plenty of Gothic inspiration when you see this brick church with its immense arches, nave and towers. The contrast of the Gothic exterior with the Baroque inspired interior gives you an immediate feeling of awe and reverence.

The most original and arguably beatiful of all Churches in Vilnius, St Anne is a mix of Gothic and Baroque in a brick costruction.

St. Anne's Church is a Roman Catholic church in Vilnius' Old Town, on the right bank of the Vilnia River. It is a prominent example of both Flamboyant Gothic and Brick Gothic styles. St. Anne's is in the list of UNESCO World Heritage sites.According to a well-known legend, Emperor Napoleon, after seeing the church during the Franco-Russian War in 1812, expressed a wish to carry the church home with him to Paris 'in the palm of his hand'.

I was really in love with this beautiful gothic architecture in Rome we haven't very much. It's an incredible example of the hidden beauty of Eastern Europe. Not so hidden as soon as you travel there.

a really nice building, completely in brick and not whitewashed or covered in plaster. It is smaller inside then it looks at the outside. The interior is rather sparse, but in all rather charming. Best photo view is from the grassy field in front of it or a bit further in the street to the right.

An architectural treasure built in the 15th- 16th centuries in a flamboyant Gothic style in the Vilnius Historic Center. The structure, built with ordinary clay bricks of 33 different shapes painted in red, and decorated in Baroque is likely the most beautiful of its style in the world.

La piccola Chiesa di Sant'Anna rivendica il titolo di chiesa più bella di Vilnius: decidete voi, di certo le sue linee esuberanti, tipiche del gotico fiammeggiante, e la facciata rossa la rendono una seria pretendente al titolo. Pare infatti che Napoleone, di passaggio a Vilnius durante la Campagna di Russia, abbia espresso il desiderio di portarla via con sé... Risale al tardo Quattrocento, e deve la sua costruzione a Re Vytautas e sua moglie Anna. Da allora ha subito diversi restauri, senza perdere il suo fascino.
