St John’s Church Bell Tower at Vilinus

Travelling in the Baltic, one sees that many churches have separate bell towers.

Some of the towers are quite tall too.DSC_0383

The St John’s bell tower at Vilinus was built in the 16th century.

I am sure in those days, these were one of the tallest structure in the area.

This is beautiful architecture and engineering challenge at the time.
