Weekend in Kaunas

Second largest Lithuanian city – Kaunas is a great place for your weekend break. Lithuanian symbolism painter and composer M. K. Čiurlionis museum is a must for any visitor of Kaunas but there is abundant choice of the museums in the city. Devil’s Museum, Vytautas the Great War Museum, 9th Fort Museum to mention just a few. Pažaislis monastery in the suburbs of Kaunas – one of the best Northern Baroque masterpieces in Lithuania. Kaunas is also great for street art lovers – numerous street art pieces you can find anywhere – from the downtown to residential areas.
Heart of Kaunas is Laisvės alėja (Liberty boulevard) – the longest pedestrian street in East Europe and the oldest in former Soviet Union. You can stroll along the street and wonder looking at modernist architecture buildings that were constructed when Kaunas was interim capital of Lithuania. Kaunas modernist architecture built in 1919-1939 was included into UNESCO World Heritage List. This is one more reason to visit Kaunas and enjoy 48 unique public buildings and private houses constructed in Naujamiestis and Žaliakalnis districts.
More active travelers can rent a bike with a service provided by the city, rent kayak, take tour on a boat, enjoy walking in Žaliakalnis park or climb Aleksotas hill.
