I was charmed with enclosed courts of Vilnius University as well as places open for public. I spent very pleasant morning listening organ in the cathedral, wandering different courts, visiting tower scenic viewpoints (tower has elevator), and buying nice souvenirs in the very special souvenir shop on the area.

always fun to check out the university when visiting other countries .. It can give you a general idea about how good the education system of the place and you can meet local students which is always a big bonus

My 5 stars are both for the building, very nice and definetely worth to see as a tourist, and for the university itself. I had my Erasmus here and it is a very good place where to study!

We did not see much of the University as we ran out of time but the climb up the University Bell Tower was one of the highlights of our visit to Vilnius. The stairs are a bit steep, but the view from the top is spectacular and gives you a great perspective on the whole city.

We thought the courtyards would be a bit like the ones in Oxford but most are very plain and uninteresting. This a trip to do if you have some spare time but not a Must See.

Real history. Excellent frescos, lovely courtyards everywhere and the added benefit today of graduation ceremonies being carried on. Beautiful library. A must see.

campus most surprising in that it has fine ne-classical architecture, a multitude of courtyards, and this church. the altar is a three-dimensional wonder of the Christian world. apparently burned on nseveral occasions, various altar pieces were salvaged and reassembled into a colossal dimensional experience. i marveled at the intricacies and manipulation of space. something you must see.

Very small place, you can visit one tower, one church and two yards. However very nice. The visit will take about 40 mins .
