Vilnius university was founded in 1579, and has a series of buildings linked by courtyards. A hidden gem is the university cafe, which serves good food at the cheapest prices in Vilnius.

There are quite many old architecture of the buildings and inner yards. Old library and bookstore are worth visiting, bookstores recommended to visit on weekend. Sunny windy day in the old town.

Its always fun to see what the other universities have and this one was pretty, with fun sculptures as well as a tower that overlooked the city.

Did not do the official tour since you had to pay an admission fee. They let us into the courtyard to go to Littera where the frescoes on the ceiling are amazing.

good place to visit and walk around, but for me the best was the Tower - entrance 2,5 euro, from which there is a scectacular view, you can use stairs or an elevator

€1.50 to enter. Frescoes are quite beautiful and in a couple different locations. You get a map showing the interconnected 13 courtyards. We walked thru most of them. I was not especially impressed by the architecture.
