I was on a tour and this was included on the tour. I could not imagine that a fee was charged to see this place. Save your money, you can tour many if not all universities with no fee. If you have a person of...More

Vilnius University, which is extremely old, boasts several beautiful courtyards and is worth strolling through. The chapel is particularly lovely with a beauitful organ case. I understand that this is where commencements are held; new graduates' names are announced over an outside loudspeaker when they...More

I visited the campus twice, first on a group walking tour, then I made a return visit to see the library and the view from the bell tower. The library is small and restricts the number of visitors. There are many beautiful old manuscripts in...More

The Vilnius University grounds are very pretty and used extensively by the locals for weddings so it is fun to see their daily lives in action. The small gift shop has the best prices in town!

The university complex is very attractive, lots of pretty courtyards in different styles. Also a lovely bookshop. We went up the tower and if you're not afraid of heights, it's a great view! A nice stop in town, for something a bit different from the...More

A most interesting visit of this university started in 1579 by the Jesuits with its 13 different courtyards and the beautiful frescoed bookshop. Don't miss going up the tower of the 13th century church from where you get a fantastic view of the city.
