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.

  • To feel the spirit of the old town of Kaunas, its roots, history, need not only to come on the tour. It is better to live in the old town. We were lucky: we had the Old Town apartments, Kaunas outdoors Dauksos, 33. This was precisely the place where all coincided: conditions, provided by mistress, House, yard, view of the Tower of Kaunas castle, a couple of steps up to the Town Hall square. For 2 days we proceeded along the streets of the old town and across. Far from Minsk: would return here again and again.

  • There are people obsessed with human touch very with attachment to the city, and also the capital of the former Lithuania city is Kaunas. You can come across a couple if the weather's good time holidays do weddings in many places in the city. This is a very laid-back town. Beer is delicious.

  • From the old town, unfortunately, little remains. From a small square goes a few streets to bypass you can for half an hour. But there is a beautiful river views and a park where you can walk with your children.
