Time your visit to take advantage of the tours to get the history and best knowledge of this place. We came at the end, so couldn't take the tour, but did wander around a bit.

The University was my first stop in Vilnius as I'd heard so much about it before arriving. It was 1.50 euro from the ticket office at the front courtyard. This allows access to the various courtyards throughout the University. The book shop within the campus is worth a look at if you want some University related souvenirs, and has a... More

The university yards look the best in late spring or early summer. I also recommend visiting the tower while you are there. The best view in town!

The University takes up quite a large part of the city centre, and you can wander round the many courtyards for a nominal fee (€1.50). You enter halfway along Universiteto Gatve, where you can obtain a useful information leaflet and map. It evidently has a long history going back to the 16th century, although most of the buildings look fairly... More

The panoramic view from the bell tower is not to be missed! Try to make the climb up beyond the elevator. It is a beautiful site!

Beautiful old university with the grand finale being the professors room. I would rate this as excellent however now I only rate as very good as last time we went we were not allowed in without a library card. If you can visit the professors room you will not be disappointed with all the fantastic old book and telescope and... More

Only saw the facade of three faculties but like most things in this town, it's immaculate . Liked the astrological signs up high.

It's located in the very heart of Vilnius Old Town and it can be interesting just to stroll around this University campus which is one of the oldest in Europe (regular ticket EUR 1,5). There is also the observation tower offering views of the old town (regular ticket EUR 2,5).
