The Cathedral of Vilnius

The Cathedral of Vilnius is the main Roman Catholic Cathedral of Lithuania. It is situated in Vilnius Old Town, just off of Cathedral Square. Dedicated to Saints Stanislaus and Ladislaus, the church is the heart of Catholic spiritual life in Lithuania.DSC_0386

The bell tower I uploaded in my last post is a short distance away from this cathedral.

The picture was taken when the light came from the side enhancing the thee dimensional effect of the architecture.

Depending on the response, I may upload further posts showing inside of the cathedral.

The Streets and Alleys of Baltic (26)

I will be doing a series on streets and alleys of the Baltic countries.

I have been to all the Baltic capitals which includes visiting of some of the UNESCO Heritage sites like Vilnius, Riga, Tallinn etc.

What I found most interesting are the alleys and the streets which all have their own characteristics.Baltic Capitals  15-Aug-09 038

I am not able to tell you exactly where those alleys and streets are; in my simple mind, they are my memorable parts of the Baltic.

I like the cobblestones, the quaint street, the colored walls on both sides of the alleys, the cafes along or encroached onto the roads, the crude masonry wall facing and last, but not the least, the friendly people.

They leave an undeletable part in my memory!

The Vilinus Picture

Some of the pictures I have taken are to remind me where I have been.

However, I got very mixed up with the images I have in the Baltic countries, especially those in the old towns.

Here is a picture I have on Vilinus, Lithuania. It includes all the major landmark cathedrals and buildings in Vilinus.DSC_0329A

It looks very similar with my others taken in the other two Baltic countries.

In any case, I did have a good time in all three countries!

Milan Cathedral By Day and By Night

Various members of my family do like taking photos.

My brother likes uploading them to his Facebook to feature his travels.

My wife like taking photos with her iPhone but never bothers to publish them.IMG_0975

As mentioned in my earlier post, my wife and her dad are travelling in Italy and Switzerland, here are two pictures of the Milan Cathedral she sent me via the iPhone today:

Actually, I like both photos, their perspectives are quite different from those available on the internet.
