Old Town Kaunas, Kaunas

4.1
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.

  • Fine. Cosy streets lined with tourist shops anyway. Plenty of cosy cafes and coffee shops

  • Heart of Kaunas, really well maintained and pleasant. Maybe not very full of shops but overall really nice. For me Kaunas is a little visit.

  • Walk the old town along the buildings that remind of the Hanseatic City past, souvenir shops, restaurants. The old Center of Kaunas has nothing to envy of Vilnius at least until the end of the street which bears this name. Then on the long avenue that succeeds it, follows the brands of a globalized world up to an old church which marks the end of the sector.
