Where to stay in Kaunas

Kaunas matches its artistic and fun-loving energy with numerous stylish boutique hotels. The one surprise is that many are quite affordable without sacrificing location. If you want something more budget-friendly, this youthful city has hostels, bed and breakfasts, and guesthouses, within the old city or close by. To experience both the city and the natural surroundings of Kaunas, opt to stay at one of the campsites, easily accessible from town via bus and offering tents or campers to rent at very reasonable rates. Be sure to book ahead when traveling to Kaunas: the city gets quite busy in the summer months, and the lack of big hotels means the small ones fill up fast.

  • As an architectural monument, Pažaislis is worth a visit. The reality of the place is less than you expect from the hype, since it is in need of restoration and repair. But, if you're in the area, it's worth a visit. The ensemble hosts a popular music festival in the summer months and the whole area is a very popular location for wedding photos.
  • Wonderful monastery with exceptional architecture. The park around is worth to walk in, you can admire trees aged of hundred years and the amazing shores of Kauno Marios Regional Park.
  • Wonderful place. Its perfectly suits for your special day.
  • Awesome place. After the visit to monastery, you can drive further up the road to find the yaht club and a restaurant with kids playground. Not sure about weekend, but on Thursday it was a quiet place to have a dinner with friends. There are some yahts for rent too.
  • A very beautiful view walking up to the area. After the entrance, there is a restaurant that is open to the public. My local friends and I were simply looking around. Beyond the entrance, is the actual church/monastery. It looked inaccessible at the time we were present because of the hour. Yet earlier times, it appears people may visit up close.
