Vilnius, Lithuania ~ Our ABC day, St Peter and Paul Church, St Anna’s Church, Trakai Castle

Monday May 19th- Vilnius, Lithuania

Morning city bus tour followed by a walking tour through the UNESCO protected Old Town portion of Vilnius.  It seems that Gate 1 has managed to connect the dots, taking us from one UNESCO site to the next.

Our guide, Agnes, said she would make sure this was not an ABC trip (ABC=Another Bloody Church).  I think she did not keep her promise today.  It is a good thing that I enjoy seeing churches.

Here is an overview of what we saw through the lens of my camera.  As usual, you can click on the underlined bold name to read more about each place if you are interested in the details.
