For 50 euro cents, you can go inside the university grounds with a map. Although the grounds itself weren't that interesting, you don't want to miss the church that is on the campus. The church is amazing and worth alone the 50 cents.

Never thought I would see such a really old university. The exterior does not tell it, but the interior is real old especially the reading room. The university dates back to the 16th century. It is one of the must see of Vilnius

It may not be as vast, ornate or varied as the colleges of Oxford and Cambridge, but the grounds of Vilnius University are still worth a visit. There are some nice squares, a flowery church and a bell tower to climb up [costs extra]. The highlight, though, are the weird murals by Petras Repsys on the walls and ceiling of... More

Other than the 450 year old reading room, this is not much to write home about...But what a reading room!

From the outside, it looks like just a regular European university, but do yourself a favor and go inside! What awaits you? A) bookstore is straight out of Harry Potter. Don't you want to pretend to be a wizard? B) the chapel has some amazing paintings C) THE MURAL. The mural by Repsys (sp?) is...disturbing(ly amazing). You can spend a... More

I visited the university when there was snowing, so all the inner yards were covered with snow. It gave me the feeling like if I was in some fairy-tale. Do not dismiss visiting books shop, it has painted ceilings from the ancient times.

A highly diverse set of quadrangles with a variety of architecture makes this small maze quite unique and very interesting. The atmosphere makes one wish they could teach ( or learn) there.

probably the most famous building in Lithuania. In mini Europe in Brussels, this is the building representing Lithuania, so I would say no more :)

Vilnius University has many proud traditions, but the hidden gem is the totally frescoed Study Room. Walls and ceilings are covered with fascinatingly gorgeous painted designs. I could have kept looking for hours. As it is, I keep going back to those photos time after time. Really lovely.
