    Very pretty. Not quite as interesting as Vilnius, but still worth checking out. The Museum of the Devil is pretty interesting!

    One reason to love Kaunas is that it is the second most pedestrian-friendly city in Europe (after Venice). Pedestrians dominate the Old Town and the Laivės Alėja, the longest pedestrian zone in Europe—1.7 kilometers long. This zone starts with a somber memorial to Romas Kalanta, a student who burned himself to death in 1972 to protest communism’s oppressive regime. From that monument you can see, at just over a mile away, the end of the pedestrian zone—the grandiose St. Michael the Archangel Church, located on Nepriklausomybės aikštė (Independence Square). If you count the Old Town’s foot-friendly areas (where cars are rare), then the total pedestrian distance is over three kilometers (two miles).

    Замечательный городок. Хоть достопримечательностей и меньше, чем в Вильнюсе, но посмотреть есть на что.

    Picturesque and infinitely walkable, Lithuania's second largest city is comfortable and cosmopolitan all at the same time.

Lithuania’s second largest city, Kaunas is situated at the confluence of the Nemunas and the Neris, the country’s two biggest rivers. This was the capital of Lithuania between the wars in 1920-1940, but the history of the city began in the 13th century when the biggest stone bastion in Lithuania was built here.

It quickly became an important trading centre and a large river port. Today, more than 420,000 people live in Kaunas.
