Very pleasant old town

Small area, but very interesting with some typical architecture .. Comfortable to potter round for a couple of hours.

It is nice, partly restored old town with good atmosphere, some nice walks (without traffic) and terrific place where two rivers connect. Walk (or even few walks) recommended but it is not a place to stay with you for years and years

5 years after my last visit, I found the city centre renovated, full of life and clean. Had a memorable day in the old town. Recommend to foreign guests, as well as fellow countrymen from other towns.

My travels are mostly about long walks on foot with some timeouts for good food and/or beer. Kaunas Old Town was great for that with lots of pubs, restaurants and architecture.

This is a large cobbled square housing the Town Museum and many interesting old buildings with varied restaurants. We crossed it late at night and felt perfectly safe.

The charm of Kaunas is not it's beautiful old buildings and picturesque life style. The old town is worth a visit, but expectations shouldn't be too high. The town itself has a much more vivid graffiti and artist scene that doesn't show here. Avoid eating at the old town at all cost. It will be 4 times the price you... More

The central Old Town was pretty much empty when we were there. Really interesting town square. Funicular was good too. Chocolates better than Belgium. Everything very cheap

I did not know much about Kaunas before I left for my trip to the Baltics but I must say that Kaunas Old Town was a surprise. Although not as extensive as the old town of Vilnius it has some very attractive features- the Town Hall, Kaunas Castle, St Xavier Church and several 15th century houses in Gothic style that...

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.
