This is really old and beautiful place to explore. If you have a friend who studies in Vilnius University you could ask him/her for a free tour. Otherwise if you want to see the library (must see) you have to pay for the tour. But it is definitely worth every penny you pay.

On a day tour around Vilnius, dropped by at the ticket office where the tour guide went in and got us brouchers explaining the different buildings within the site. That's the part I'm confused about - how can the people tell whether I'm a student or not? there's no guard checking tickets nor do we need put on stickers nor... More

In the center of Vilnius, the most buildings belonged to the church and university. So historically working for both institution was important, my friend told me so. Of course now the most are used for cafe, restaurant, and gift shop. But I really love this atmosphere making the whole downtown calm and harmonized.

The university also includes a church which may be visited as well but make sure to visit the Bell Tower which offers a fantastic view of the cith. There is a lift inside the tower so going up is not a problem.

We were staying very close to Unversity on Gedimino Pr. Unversity was on my way and situated on a small hillock. We never visited the building from inside as we were not sure if we could go inside. However it was always bustling with activity. Beautiful building and good view of Vilnius town.

I walked in here almost everyday for 6 years while studying here. The University is great, lots of nice corners to sit and things to look at.The Prezidentura (where the president works) are near (actually on the other side of the road) and lots of students come on the Prezidentura's grass to have lunch, chat and etc.

I like the most this place in the Vilnius. It feels like an integral part with it's own church, and small courtyards. There was a concert in the church while we were there and loudspeaker translated the music outside - absolutely marvelous experience to wander in the university with a great music, really help to you to immerse to those...

Right in the heart of the Old Town, stands one of the oldest universities of Central and Eastern Europe and it's a perfect place to visit while you're in Vilnius. Make sure you book a tour guide, it will be beneficial for couple of reasons, firstly you'll learn a lot about the University (and Vilnius) history and secondly, the guide... More

Founded over 400 years ago, the oldest in Northern Europe. Go see the library and the frescos, so beautiful and interesting. The entire campus is wonderful and a bit Harry Potterish. Frescos in the book shop too. The univeristy church, the Sts. Johns´ church is divine. No not misspelt. Dedicated to three Saints by the name of John.
