Vilnius University is situated at Universiteto 3 in the center of the Old Town. The courtyard was closed when we went. It is Lithuania's largest University and has over 13 courtyards.

If you're visiting Vilnius than to visit the University is a must! We are all very proud of the history of the University and always are taking all visitors to at least see the architecture (even without guide).

Very interesting old architecture of the buildings and inner yards. Old library and bookstore are worth of visiting. Also, if you have some time take a trip to the top of the tower (for a small fee).
