Visit of the University of Vilnius. Founded in 1568 by Polish Jesuits, on the initiative of the king Stephan Bathory, it was from its foundation an important cultural centre in the Baltic region. Mostly built in baroque style, we will admire its historical halls and the beautiful frescoes which decorate its arches and vaults. The complex of the University occupies a whole district inside the old town and is divided on 12 inner courts built during the last four centuries. Inside the main one, we can find the Lutheran Saint-John’s church (Sv. Iono) initially built in 1387 in Gothic style, and then rebuilt in the 18th century in Lithuanian Baroque.
