Pažaislis Monastery


Here's a nice aerial view of the largest monastery in the Baltic republic of Lithuania, compliments of contributor Andriuhamas.  It's the Pažaislis Monastery and the Church of the Visitation in the Petrašiūnai neighborhood of Kaunas the country's cultural capital.  The monastery founded in 1662 but wasn't completed until early in the 18th century.  It's considered the finest example of Baroque architecture in the country.  Since the 1990's, it's also been the scene of an annual music festival.
