St. Anne's Church

Without a doubt St. Anne's Church is one Vilnius's most
famous landmarks. The church was originally built in honor
of Ona, the wife of Vytautas the Great.

The church is composed of 33 different styles of brick that are
carefully assembled into a delicate and intricate whole.

Rumor has it while Emperor Napoleon was visiting Vilnius he wanted to take
the building back to Paris in the palm of his hand.
