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 .

I visited with my Lithuaniam friend who attended this university. It old world charm is magnificent. Some of the rooms look as they are out of block busting film. The decorated walls are very surprising, and interesting.

Very nice interior courts. Try to get inside the building itself, especially Greek&Latin section, there are frescoes and paintings on the walls.

We were lucky to have excursion in University, old lady showed us everything interesting. I liked library where old paintings and frescoes were preserved. Old manuscripts and books bring you back to the old and ancient times. Starting from July 2013 when Lithuania started presiding in Europe Council, they opened exhibition of old books and documents dating back to 14th-16th... More

An old but nicely renovated campus downtown with great history. And why I must write 50 characters? And why I must write 50 characters?
