Founded in the late 16th century, Vilnius University is one of the oldest universities in Eastern Europe. The university is situated in the heart of the old town, so it's easily accesible and worth a visit. Take some time to explore the 13 courtyards, as well as St. John's church.

A note about St. John's: the church is on the perimter of the university complex, and it appears as though you should be able to gain access from the old town streets. To get in, however, you have to be inside the university complex. This took us a little while to figure out, but it was worth the effort.

Address: Pilies st. 13, 15, 17
Directions: Near the main old town's Pilies street
