Old Town Kaunas, Kaunas

(4/5 based on 650+ 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.

  • Stayed at hotel Ibis. Right next to the bus terminal was located. A central location and super hotel. We bought the 3 day bus pass (further info at the tourist bureau.) it costs less than 5 euros per person and you can use the card at all times to the trolleybus and bus. We took the bus from the airport No 29. It kept just next to our hotel. Amount 0.80 euro per person. It is very easy to use the public transport system. We have used it right much. Hopped on and off. In this way, seen all over the city for cheap money. We have been in a day SPA stay in Birstonas. Bus ticket 2.88 per person. It takes about 1 hour from the bus terminal and will be set off at the SPA hotel. "Vytautas Mineral SPA" It is brand new from november 2016. Delicious place. We have inter alia been eating in the basement "Senieji russiai" in the old city. Super food and service. On the square in the gl. Town is also rather "Forto Dvaras" also eat a nice eating place. Here is the right cold-8 to 10 degrees. Here are outlets currently so usefully have bought new coat and boots.

  • Not as developed as Vilnius but surely getting there. Could do with some more renovation but has potential. Loads of restaurants bit naturally pretty touristic. 
  • Pretty and scenic. The main hub of Kaunas tourism. Great selection of bars, restaurants, shops and an all round nice vibe. Typical cobbled and windy streets that lead if the main walkway. A hidden gem...  more »
