Great view of the most famous cathedral in Siauliai.

The Šiauliai Cathedral is one of the most visited by pilgrims prayer house in Lithuania. The first wooden version of nowadays Šiauliai Cathedral was built in 1445 by a samogit Kesgaila. In the 17th century a new mason church here was erected. The newly build church was named the Church of St. Peter and Paul. It only was declared to be a Cathedral in 1997 after the pope John Paul II visited it.
