There are great views of Vilnius from an unobstructed viewing balcony at the top of the church’s tower. In fact, I would consider this better for views of Vilnius than the Gediminas Tower – and easier to get to. Entrance to the St. John’s church...More

This is the church which is part of the University of Vilnius, which is also worth seeing. The outside is grand, but the interior is really what is worth seeing.

I arrived here late in the afternoon which was perfect as the light is at its best at that time, even in summer, and it also meant it was quiet - I think there were only about 3 others visiting the University at that time....More

and you don't even have to walk up all the stairs - there is a modern glass lift that takes you up. It only costs a couple of euros and the view is very good. There are four or five windows - with the main...More
