Chapel of Our Lady of Šiluva

A terrace on the roof of Christ’s Resurrection Church offers a spectacular panoramic view of the city of Kaunas. In a small tower at one end of the terrace, a chapel dedicated to Our Lady of Šiluva has been built in memory of all those who died for the cause of freedom. The chapel was designed by the architect Algimantas Sprindys. Its altar contains a relic of St Anthony. Both the chapel and the altar were blessed on July 22, 2004. The terrace chapel is used to administer the Sacraments of Matrimony and Baptism, as well as for spiritual retreats for small groups. The terrace can be reached by staircases or by lift.
