Vilnius Wedding Palace

It is the new church of the Soviet period. It is the first in Lithuania wedding palace, the appearance whereof was dictated by Atheist ideology, i.e. no wedding in the church. A group of young and brave architects created a building of exceptional plastic forms for solemn ceremonies in Vilnius. Its interior, exterior and functions remained totally unchanged, and city dwellers still gather to see married couples descending the stairs of the palace at weekends.
