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 take care of the beauty and cosiness of their town.
The tour will give you a sense of what Kaunas is all about, presenting its history, architecture, culture, atmosphere, its most famous places and contemporary street art.

You will visit:

  • Old Kaunas Post Office
  • Site of Romas Kalanta self- immolation
  • "Courtyard gallery"
  • Central Bank of Lithuania
  • Lithuanian Military Museum Garden
  • Interwar modernist architecture buildings
  • Church of the Resurrection of Christ
  • Kaunas  Sobor
  • "The ghost of Kaunas"

The tour wasn’t informative. The guide wasn’t proffesional, knowledgable, energetic. I didn’t learn much and It felt as It was tireing and boring for him to guide the group.

It's a good tour. Heavy on the Soviet Era. If that's what you're looking for it's a good tour.

A very nice tour. A bit ahead of schedule at the end, but that may have been because there were just two of us on the tour.

Vytenis is expert on the modernist architecture of Kaunas and his stories tend to be about buildings and of course the people past and present therein. He has a wry sense of humour but is not a bag of laughs. We liked the style and content. I accept he might not be everybody's idea of the bright and breezy guide with a colourful umbrella!
