Nice to walk around if you like universities ( I do!)

Nice buildings, central in town, and one imagine how it must have been hundreds of years ago when Vilnius was a major educational center.

I love walking around university areas with a few centuries of history. This one unfortunately was not at all what I expected. Most buildings looked as if they had been rendered over last year, all looking dull and similar. The tiny art shop in the courtyard on the left of the church was sweet, though. Skip it and spend your... More

The university complex in Vilnius is located right in the city centre and is well worth a visit. The entrance fee is extremely low for visitors used to western European prices. There are several courtyards, but make sure you don't miss the mosaics in the upstairs hall, which are strange and fascinating. Also worth climbing is the bell tower which... More

I was disappointed with this. I'd imagined something rather grander - along the lines of Cambridge; but then it's had a more troubled history.

People shouldn't be paying to visit a Universitary Bookshop, but in Vilnius they dare charging money for this. Nevertheless, this shop has extremely nice frescos and it's definitely worth a visit!

This is a surprisingly good place to visit. There are a number of quadrangles but the outstanding places are the church, the painted bookshop and the department of philology. Entrance fee is 1.50euro which is excellent value.

So often overlooked this university campus is not to be missed. The wall frescoes of Lithuanian folklore are spectacular. The whole architecture is beautiful across the 13 courtyards are beautiful. The university church is splendid with baroque rococo style and 2 fresco that survived soviet occupation. The university bookshop also has a good selection of Lithuanian literature including fairytales and... More

This is the oldest university in Vilnius. The whole campus is really beautiful, but do go inside to see the amazing frescoes based on Baltic mythology - they're beautiful!
