Vilnius Old Town, the historical centre of Vilnius, is one of the largest in Europe, at 3.6 sq. km. The buildings here – there are nearly 1,500, including 65 churches – were built over several centuries, creating a blend of many different architectural styles.
Although Vilnius is known as a Baroque city, there are examples of Gothic (e.g. St. Anne’s Church), Renaissance, and other styles. Owing to its uniqueness, the Old Town of Vilnius was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1994.
