Kaunas

Situated between the Neris and Nemunas rivers, Kaunas is known for its old town, which, though smaller than the capital's, is in much better condition. This historical district represents a combination of museums, churches, and lively streets with the city hall square at its center as well as a nearby castle. Kaunas also serves as home to a Russian fortress and Baroque monastery that attract tourists. This city of over 300,000 residents is also teeming with students, who drive an energetic nightlife scene. Use our Lithuania road trip website to arrange the hows, wheres, and whens of your trip to Kaunas.

Where to stay in Kaunas

Kaunas matches its artistic and fun-loving energy with numerous stylish boutique hotels. The one surprise is that many are quite affordable without sacrificing location. If you want something more budget-friendly, this youthful city has hostels, bed and breakfasts, and guesthouses, within the old city or close by. To experience both the city and the natural surroundings of Kaunas, opt to stay at one of the campsites, easily accessible from town via bus and offering tents or campers to rent at very reasonable rates. Be sure to book ahead when traveling to Kaunas: the city gets quite busy in the summer months, and the lack of big hotels means the small ones fill up fast.
