St. Casimir's Church

Churches, Alytus

St. Casimir's Church was always the prayer meeting place for the army. At the beginning of the XX century, there was a Pakrovskaya church and czar’s Russia soldiers based in Alytus used to come there. After the end of WW I the Slavic church was reconstructed into the Catholic church, dedicated to St. Casimir and became the Garrison church for Uhlans living next to it. During the Soviet time, a salt warehouse was in the church, later an engineering factory work club was formed there. The church was returned to churchgoers in the years of the Lithuanian revival.
