51 Reviews

As one of the oldest universities in Eastern Europe, Vilnius’ seat of learning opened in 1579 and has since been extended to incorporate just about every architectural style, from Baroque to Neo-Classical.

Built around a series of arcaded courtyards, the university also holds Lithuania’s oldest public library as well many suites of ornately frescoed and vaulted apartments. Like many other public buildings in the Baltic, the university has suffered or thrived according to the regime in power at any given time. Initially run by Jesuits, it was transferred to secular power in 1773 but closed in the late 19th century on the orders of Tsar Nicholas I.

The university reopened in 1919 just before Lithuania was annexed by Poland, who ran the university until World War II, when it was administered by the Nazis and subsequently by the Soviet Union. Today it has been safely back in local hands since 1990, when Communism finally collapsed.

Famous students at Vilnius University include the Polish Romantic poet Adam Mickiewicz and Nobel prizewinner Czeslaw Milosz. Today there are 15,000 students procuring 5,000 degrees annually and contributing to the buzzing social life so evident on the city’s streets.

The old town of Vilnius: An audio tour from Cathedral Square to the Gate of Dawn

The old town of Vilnius: An audio tour from Cathedral Square to the Gate of Dawn

On this self guided audio tour, I’ll show you my hometown from a local perspective telling stories about it that I find fascinating along with some of my own, personal stories. We’ll start in the heart of the city, at Cathedral Square, then stroll through the cobbled streets of the old town and end at the Gate of Dawn. Throughout their history, Lithuania and the other Baltic states have followed a different path to the rest of Europe. It’s a path that’s not well-known to the wider world. But since Lithuania became independent in 1990, its capital Vilnius has opened up to the world, merging influences both local and international. You'll discover: • How we celebrate Vilnius’ Birthday • The independence of the Baltic states and why we consider it a miracle • Why Lithuanian hot chocolate is the best hot chocolate • Where to watch the stars and planets in Vilnius • The street with the best local craftsmen • Why a Vilnius hangman had up to seven wives
