Christ's Resurrection Church, Kaunas

3.9
#5 of 12 in Historic Sites in Kaunas
Though the concept for Christ's Resurrection Church arose in 1918, low funds, Nazi occupation, and Soviet rule meant that this church was not completed until 2005. The modern interior features clean lines and its large roof terrace offers some of the best views of the city. You can take the elevator or save some money by taking the stairs. Already tall in itself, the church sits on top of Kaunas's Green Hill, granting visitors far-reaching panoramic vistas.

    Church itself is beautiful with great organ but the view from up top is way overrated and way too expensive in my opinion. Not worth 4.50 to take the elevator.  more »

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.
