“Interesting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2012

Although you cannot go inside the University it was interesting to go to St John the Evangelist Chuch which is situated in the grounds and then to take a walk around. If you haven't got a lot of time to spare I would suggest that there are other sights more interesting to visit.

“great place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2012

Impressive place, with 13 different courtyards with great decoration. Had the luck to visit it on the first day of the academic year, so in the central yard there were students celebrating, live music from the university band, etc.

“Explore the courtyards”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2012

The interlocking courtyards of the University are fascinating to explore. Memorials plaques to ancient professors, the church of St John, the University bookshop and the old observatory all remind you of what an important and ancient seat of learning this is. And all it went through.

“A Waste of Time and Money”

As they charge to wander the University it is scarecely worth the ticket and for goodnes sake don't touch their steel dorrs or the local Commissar will chew off your head--in Lithanian!

“Needs a tour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2012

You need a ticket for the bell tower and the cathedral. The bell tower is excellent, and make sure you go the extra storey to the top after the level where th glass elevator stops. It is a very tricky, slippery climb over steps, but worth it. The views are very good.

The cathedral itslef is interesting though not outstanding. However beyond that you are on your own. It would be nice if they had some tour to show around the large University campus.
