Courtyard of the Basilian Monastery

Even though the burning city was filmed here, the Basilian monastery is still standing in perfect condition for you to see. The crew of the miniseries used flame torches in the courtyard to recreate the burning city. After making a prop of wooden gates, the art department burned it and placed it in the gateway of the Basilian Monastery.

The decoration representing devastated gates was so real that both residents of Vilnius and journalists posted news about historic heritage ruined during the shooting of the TV series. But all is well, come see for yourself.
