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.

  • Kaunas is the heart of Lithuania, 93% of the urban population is Lithuanians. Old town here clean, beautiful and quite colorful. There is something to see and where to go for a walk. The machine can be put by the Castle, there's a big parking lot. On weekends and after 18:00 for free.

  • A wonderful city center with cosy streets and a variety of stone houses of past centuries. Younger of course Tallinn that historical attitude creates. Cape where the River Nemunas and Neris Castle Park and spot appearances, Pope John Paul 2 are remembered forever.

  • Spent a really enjoyable day walking around the streets of the old town, lots to see, photograph and generally soak up the atmosphere. Some stunning architecture and statues.  more »
