St. Johns Church

St. John's Church

St. John's Church, dating to 1426 and then reconstructed in 1749, is situated on the Vilnius University campus. The belfry is the tallest structure in Old Town; this shot from a corner of the courtyard was the only way to capture it along with the church. There was a concert going on that evening, and a young man with a great camera persuaded us to attend part of it, even though we weren't really dressed for it. He kept coming over and asking us to stay, so we did, and it was delightful. Clips to follow.
