The taxi ride to and fro was 16€ but it was worth it to experience this place. The old prison was very interesting and a bit scary to think what happened here. The monument and burial ground outside was moving.

Definitely worth visiting! Be sure to take guide services. They're funny, smart and able to introduce you with ninth fort history, old stories. After this you will be overwhelmed by hard Lithuanians past, lifetime in Soviet union and so on. :))

The place was the stage of a historical massacre in Lithuania. You can even feel all the pain there. It is painful to go, but is definitely a must to when you visit Kaunas.

There was no cafe when we went last year. Take a couple of snacks and some water with you. You could easily spend anywhere between 3-5 hours there.
