Church of St. Bartholomew



Hits: 30

The Church of St. Bartholomew is located behind the gate, in a courtyard, in the district of Užupis in Vilnius across Vilnia River. Probably, the church is smallest in Vilnius

The first wooden church on this place was built up in the mid-17th century but soon was burned down and in 1788 was replaced by a Classical brick one. The church acquired its present-day form at the end of the 19th centyry when the tower was added

During the 1794 uprising, the church was damaged and rebuilt as late as 1824 in the eclectic style. A belfry was erected in 1881
