Tour description

Kaunas is blessed with a cosy environment- spacious fine buildings, two rivers converging into one and plenty of trees.
It was once a castle, then a fortress city and later it became the cultural and political centre of the whole country. And now it is a small, quiet town with a distinctive culture, where the townspeople themselves create big part of environment.
The tour will give you a sense of what Kaunas is all about, presenting the most important parts of the city as well as seeing the "hidden gems". I believe that you need to see not only the "big things", but hidden parts as well. Those details tells not less important stories.

You will visit:

  • Old Kaunas Post Office
  • Site of Romas Kalanta self- immolation
  • "Courtyard gallery"
  • Central Bank of Lithuania
  • Local yars
  • Interwar modernist architecture buildings
  • Church of Saint Gertrude
  • "Secret chapel"
  • Cathedral of Kaunas

Tour will not happen with less than 3 participants!

We had a delightful tour of Kaunas with Vytenis. His information was varied and did a very nice job of balancing this often sad history with a fun and interesting sense of humor. Thank you kindly!
