    Been meaning to come here for a number of years as a avid historian and finally booked a two hour English tour today

    The tour guide was so informative and made the tour fun and interactive given some of the darker nature of the forts history. The holocaust part of the tour was particularly sad but needs to be remembered.

    The guided tour was well worth the money. You also get to access parts of the forts and tunnels not accessible to general access

    Pleasant place to wander around for an hour or so. Varied period architecture all interestingly juxtaposed and quite photogenic. There is some interesting modern architecture too down side roads that is totally unexpected - nice to see what must be a progressive planning regime. Some colourful planting schemes around too.

    Main square looks like one big bar however and must get very raucous on a warm weekend night! Shops are a bit thin on the ground but are a bit quirky and with some expensive quality stock. Its about 20 minutes leisurely walk from Laisves al.

    Anyone interested in medicine should take half an hour of their time to visit this museum. At 2 euros per person it's worth every cent! Whilst the museum is small, the enthusiasm of the staff makes it a very interesting visit. There are only a few basic rooms and the information isn't overloading. Be sure to ask questions and the young man and old man will be sure to have an interesting conversation with you.

    Was quite taken with this pedestrianised avenue. Had a lively cosmopolitan feel and its very popular with the locals. Plenty of cafes, bars and restaurants line it along with shops. At one end is impressive church of St Michael the Archangel and there is a dancing fountain colourfully lit at night about half way along the latter section going towards this church.

    The end approaching the old town route is a bit quieter no no less lovely to stroll along and you pass through a nicely landscaped main square containing a statue of Vytautas the Great and a substantial commemorative plaque to Romas Kalanta, a Lithuanian student who set fire to himself in the square as a protest to Soviet occupation in 1972.

    Ive never been to a devil museum before and I doubt I will find another one. Interesting exhibition. Make sure to read the descriptions on the cases which set out details of the individual displays.

    An inspiring and engaging museum telling the story of how 2 diplomats in wartime, Nazi occupied Kaunas, were able to facilitate escape for hundreds of Jews otherwise destined for murder or death camps. Israel has declared them Righteous Among the Nations. This story restores faith in humanity.

    Difficult to get to this museum without your own car.

    Fabulous Modern Museum!
    The exhibition layout and the architecture of the museum combine harmoniously, creating a space that enhances the perception of art.
    The artworks are displayed with attention to detail, while the lighting highlights their beauty.

    As I entered this cathedral, the word that I kept saying to myself was “Wow” The building is huge and tall. The decorations, intricate mouldings on the upper areas of the walls, paintings at the ceilings, big musical organs, statues, etc. are all beautiful and deserve the “WOW” word.

    Said my prayers and took several pictures here.

    I was staying in Kaunas for a few days and had planned to visit the Monastery. It’s really easy on public transport. I caught the No 5 trolley bus to the terminus and then it was a well directed 15 minute walk. I stayed for a couple of hours and enjoyed the whole area
