Old Town Kaunas, Kaunas
(4/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
Resting at the confluence of two key rivers, Old Town Kaunas represents the medieval heart and architectural focal point of the city. Spread across 144 hectares (356 acres), the historic center comprises numerous buildings of different styles, ranging from Gothic to Baroque, and houses many of the city's major structures like the town hall and cathedral. Wander the cobbled streets and explore the winding alleyways. You'll discover a number of Lithuanian restaurants, museums, and religious buildings along the way, complemented by a backdrop of pastel colors and cathedral spires. Don't miss the tower of Kaunas castle, which guards the banks of the Neris: it's a surviving medieval remnant that you can access and climb. Use our Kaunas itinerary maker to add Old Town Kaunas and other attractions to your Kaunas vacation plans.

  • Kaunas hit accidentally-walking in Vilnius))) and the first impression was not very-for those who come by train. Reporter of the desire to turn around and come back I pre-loaded map of went in towards the Center. And for good reason)) I even found there old house built on the banks of the River, which I would like to live and drink tea with friends on the balcony-terrace in the evening, watching the sunset over the river))), a lively, bustling, but green-here it is, Kaunas. Very pleasing to the eye an unusual metal sculptures around the old town, yet more pleased hundreds filled cafes with terraces. Beautiful architecture) and around the Castle. In the end, was there two days. In the Central streets of the free Internet access. Places good pulls, not really looking for. And has reserved itself overnight-to stay another day) in Kaunas I will return))
