Educational classes in the Cathedral‘s crypts and treasury (Šv. Mykolo St. 9)

The crypts of Vilnius Cathedral and the history of the treasury

We will descend into the crypts of Vilnius Cathedral and see the ancient burials, the royal mausoleum and the earliest fresco in Lithuania. We will explore the treasury of Vilnius Cathedral, which remained hidden in the times of war and turmoil and is currently exhibited in the newly renovated Saint Michael’s Church. The size of a group of schoolchildren is up to 60 persons. Grades: 1–12. Duration – 2 hours. Price – 3 Eur, from September 1, 2019 – 4,50 Eur.
Archaeological research of the crypts

What can bricks, splinters of pottery or even bones tell us? They have been attracting the interest of scientists of various fields: historians, anthropologists and archaeologists. We will try to look at the cathedral crypts through their eyes. We offer you an interesting tour followed by a practical part, in which you yourselves can become archaeologists. Using special tools we will excavate the prepared “cultural layer” and come across quite many curious and perhaps even amazing finds. We will try to understand what the finds can tell us about the cathedral, its crypts and the inhabitants of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania. The size of a group of schoolchildren is up to 24 persons. Grades: 5–11. Duration – 2 hours. Price – 4,50 Eur.
