ST. GEORGE CHURCH AND BERNARDINE MONASTERY

Papilio g. 7, Kaunas +370 37 224 659

The church of St. George has remained gothic despite all reconstructions after wars and conflagrations. This shrine of late gothic style is one of the five churches built between 1495 and 1510 which belong to the national heritage of genuine Lithuanian architecture. According to researchers D. Kaczmarzykas and Vladas Drėma, there is such a clear relation of architectural features, artistic expression and identical motifs in the St. Ann and the Bernardine churches in Vilnius and the church of St. George in Kaunas that they can confidently be attributed to the same master – the Vilnius church architect Michael Enkinger.
