When I left the Discs of the Sun, I walked across the street to the Cathedral of Sts. Peter and Paul in Siauliai, Lithuania.  Needless to say, it’s another large church.

Instead of retyping all the information about the cathedral, I took a picture of the plaque – it’s quite interesting.

The inside of the cathedral was just as impressive and large.
