I really envy the students there to have a such beautiful environment to study. This university complex is beautiful with 13 court yards. I spent a little bit of over an hour there, strolling through its court yards, church, and got a chance to talk...More

The University is situated in the centre of the old town of Vilnius and all you could see were the facades of the buildings.

There is some good architecture here, and the price of 1.50 Euros is very reasonable. They give you a pamphlet with a map. The church is beautiful. Sadly, the bell tower was closed when we were there.

The university squares are so quiet, it's remarkable knowing that you're in the middle of the city. The buildings are beautiful and I had never seen a fresco like this one. I don't consider this a must-see but definitely worth your time.

Vilnius University, which is extremely old, boasts several beautiful courtyards and is worth strolling through. The chapel is particularly lovely with a beauitful organ case. I understand that this is where commencements are held; new graduates' names are announced over an outside loudspeaker when they...More

I visited the campus twice, first on a group walking tour, then I made a return visit to see the library and the view from the bell tower. The library is small and restricts the number of visitors. There are many beautiful old manuscripts in...More
