The Russian Orthodox Church of St Nicholas, Vilnius

Russian Orthodox church of St Nicholas was a small church I casually explored in Vilnius, capital city of Lithuania. It is very small but interiors are very different from other other churches I have seen.

The Russian Orthodox Church of St Nicholas is full 7 centuries old, though it received occasional renovation. This is one of the oldest Orthodox churches in the world (More about Orthodox concept here)
As I went inside, there was a signage that prohibited photography. It was not clear if photography is prohibited or flash alone is banned (many places allow photography without flash). So I asked a lady inside the church (she was manning a counter that sells stuff like candles and lamps that devotees purchase for use in religious practices) if I can click. She signaled 'Fine' and I took some pictures.


St Nicholas church is very small church, near the the Vilnius Town hall.  Worth few minutes I spent on it.
