Vilnius University Library, founded in 1570, has remained in its authentic place up to now. Together with all the buildings and courtyards of the old University, it composes a uniform, spectacular and unique architectural ensemble of Vilnius Old Town, representing the history of Lithuanian science and culture progress.
In order to prevent the possible spread of coronavirus the entry to Vilnius University ensemble will be preventively limited to 31 May; therefore, guided tours will not be organised.
