Established in 1579 and one of the oldest universities in Eastern Europe, the ensemble that makes up Vilnius University’s main campus buildings embraces just about every major architectural style of the last 400 years. Closed for much of the 19th and the first 18 years of the 20th century, famous students who studied here include the Romantic poets Adam Mickiewicz and Juliusz Słowacki, the writer and historian Simonas Daukantas and the Nobel-winning author Czesław Miłosz. As well as housing the oldest library in the country, the university is also famed for its courtyards, of which there are either 12 or 13 depending on your definition of one.

I enjoyed wandering around Vilnius University. I particulary liked the church and bell tower, but also enjoyed wandering through some of the quadrangles. The entrance is near the parliament building.
