St. John's Church is located on the campus of Vilnius University, and was reconstructed in 1749. Beautiful high altar and elaborate blue organ. The Church's adjoining Bell Tower is the tallest structure in Old Town. Add this to your sightseeing list!!!!

This is quite a striking church, with a an airy, rather light interior instead of the gloomy cavernous interior of many of Europe’s fine houses of worship. The architecture is worth visiting and the altar is magnificent. Don’t focus only on the tower as the...More

The extensive university grounds have a tower attached to St.John's church which is worth climbing for the views. Entrance fee to the university does not include this and requires a separate payment.

At only 2.50 Euro this was a bargain! There is thankfully a lift that takes you most of the way up and then you just have to climb a few death-defyingly steep wooden steps to the very top (This is not for people scared of...More

As I love churches and church architecture, the Baroque altar of the church is impressive. I would pay the €1.50 to see this again versus the rest of the university's courtyards included in the price that are only mildly interesting.

If you like churches or are into architecture in general this is a great place to experience Vilnius' baroque / rococo architecture. The apsis of the church consists of several altars creating a magnificent feeling of sculptured room. Beautiful and rich decor and statutes lines...More

The Church is a nice example of the Baroque art. The best part is a visit to a separately standing Campanile (Bell tower). You are in the middle of the Old town and get the best views over. Gediminas' Castle has a different perspective, i...More
