"UNIVERSITY" Vilnius University Tip by Sininen

Vilnius University, Vilnius: 16 reviews and 33 photos

The University of Vilnius, one of the oldest and most famous establishments of higher education in Eastern and Central Europe, was founded in 1579. After having returned from Trakai I decided to visit Vilnius University Ensemble. There are 13 courtyards and I am not quite sure if I visited them all. I had a map with me but even with it I found it bit difficult. The large courtyard is surrounded by arcades from three sides and on the fourth side the facade of St. John's Church.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
