I’m not a big fan of Baroque church architecture. I think it’s overblown and overdone. I love the simplicity of Gothic and Romanesque churches with sweeping arches. Fortunately some still exist, even though many have Baroque additions such as altars. We visited several good examples of Gothic church architecture over the last week: Vytautas Church in Kaunas, St. Anne’s Church in Vilnius, and a church in Palanga (built in 1907 but in the Gothic style).
