Church of Saints Peter and Paul

Once modest wooden Vilnius Church of Saints Peter and Paul has been fascinating city dwellers and guests by its incredible beauty since mid-17th century. Vilnius Voivode Michał Kazimierz Pac built the temple in order to express his gratefulness for returning safe and sound from a war against Muscovites. The majesty of the interior of the church lies in the white space. The temple is decorated with the works of Italian sculptors Giovanni Pietro Perti and Giovanni Maria Galli. If we tried to count them, there would be over two thousand of pieces of decoration.
