VILNIUS EXTENSION: LITHUANIA

If possible, please reserve at least 2 more days - ideally at the start of the tour - to enjoy the beauty of the capital of Lithuania and to pay homage to the miraculous Gate of Dawn (Ostra Brama).

Sister Faustina lived in Vilnius in 1933-1936 when it was a part of Poland and known as Wilno. Here she started to write her Diary and this is also the place where the Image of the Divine Mercy was painted by Eugene Kazimierowski. You can still see the original painting at the Vilnius Divine Mercy Sanctuary. It’s a pleasure to wander the cobbled streets of this compact, splendidly preserved baroque old town. Please inform us about your time constraints so that we can prepare an attractive well-priced program.
