Vilnius is well known in Europe of its impressive Old Town. It is not very big but it is one of the oldest medieval old towns in the Northern Europe. You can find such buildings as the Gediminas castle which is the main symbol of foundation of Vilnius and down the hill there is Vilnius cathedral the main sacred place in Lithuania. I am happy that my work and study place is one of the most elaborate architectural complexes in the city. Vilnius University Architectural Ensemble occupies a large part of the Old Town and has 13 courtyards.

The oldest Academic library in Lithuania is Vilnius University library which works in the historical place in the old town. There are plenty of others impressing buildings in the old town. You can find hundreds churches of different confessions of different times. The all history of Lithuania is written on the streets of Old town of Vilnius. It is importing that in 1994 the Vilnius’ Old Town was included in the UNESCO World Heritage List in recognition of its universal value and originality.
