Kaunas

Lithuania’s second largest city, Kaunas, is beautifully located at the confluence of the two rivers: Nemunas and Neris. The earliest known references to Kaunas appear in records dating from 1361. Between the World War I and World War II, Kaunas was the capital of Lithuania.

Today there are not many cities in Eastern Europe that have such a beautiful surroundings as Kaunas. Here two great winding rivers “embrace each other”; seven deep valleys with steep ravines and high hills and banks of the rivers with lovely parks of oak-trees, lime-trees, birches and pines add immense charm to the city. Kaunas also is know as the most beautiful Hanseatic Town due to its medieval Kaunas castle ruins and the Old Town uniting buildings from the 13th till 18th centuries.

Kaunas also is a city of very old and established cultural traditions and a place where generations of Lithuanian artists, composers and writers lived and have left their imprint. Today their works are in display in numerous museums and art galleries, of which one is especially notable. The Art Gallery of M.K.Ciurlionis displays the work of this great world-known painter and composer.

The tour in Kaunas includes walking tour in the Old Town of Kaunas, visiting the ruins of the Kaunas Castle dating back to the 13th-16th centuries as an evidence of the ancient battles between Lithuania and Teutonic Order; 15th century Church of St.Vytautas; St. George’s Church; Kaunas Cathedral; the City Hall dating back to the 16th-18th centuries; the Perkunas (Thunder) House and many other charming Old Town buildings.

You will also drive through the new centre of the town built in the 19th century and walk along the pedestrian area of the town – Laisves Alley.

Vilniaus Street leads to the Old Town. The most imposing edifice is Kaunas CATHEDRAL BASILICA which was completed in 1655.Other buildings of note are: Town Hall Square, Perkūnas House, Vytautas’ Church, The Church of the Holy Trinity and St. Francis Xavier’s Church. When returning along the bank of the Neris you come to Kaunas Castle. Though largely in ruins, the massive fortifications give an excellent idea of the powerful castle, which once stood there.

One of the strangest museums in the world is the DEVILS’ MUSEUM, which has a bizarre collection of devils from all over the world. More sober is the Military Museum on Unity Square.
M.K. Ciurlionis Art Museum.

During the tour to Kaunas we also suggest to go out a bit of the city and to visit the beautiful Baroque Pazaislis Monastery, the 9th Fort and Lithuanian Ethnography Open-air Museum in Rumsiskes.
