Church of Sts Johns and the University Architectural Ensemble

Šv. Jono str. 12 and Universiteto str. 3

One of the picturesque parts of the Vilnius University building is the Church of Sts. Johns and its bell tower. The full name of the church is the Church of St. John the Baptist and St. John the Evangelist. The construction of this church lasted for almost 40 years and was completed in 1426. At that time it was a Gothic building. In 1571 the church was transferred to the Order of Jesuits and became a part of the university complexes.

Nowadays student graduation ceremonies, various concerts and festivals are held here.
