Weekly Photo Challenge: Let There Be Light!

International Travel, Photography

Kaunas, Lithuania

This site has been ruined by fire three times, suffered the wrath of the Moscow army during the war of 1656-1659 and then had a bit of a rest during the 18th century before Napoleon turned it into a warehouse. During Soviet times, the church was used to store medicine. It was returned to the Friars in 1993 and has since been undergoing a very slow restoration.

Most of its windows are bricked over, allowing the few restored windows to emit an appropriately ethereal light.
