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.

Actually, I studied there on exchange. It's not only a functioning university, but a traditional tourist attraction, because the history of Vilnius is closely linked to its university. And every time I had friends visiting me in Vilnius, I brought them here. The entrance is paid, but if you enter through the central door where students enter the Main building,... More

Just pass the ticket counter and do it yourself. Use main door to go to the library and study a bit maybe. Walk in the courtyard. There is plenty of plates in Polish as it the university was set up by Poland and under the Polish rule of the territory. Before the ticket counter turn left snd follow straight. There... More

Pleasant enough walk around the courtyards but not really a standout. Murals are interesting. bookshop was closed when we were there sadly.
