Places to visit in Kaunas

As the country's former capital, Kaunas boasts an eventful history that is still visible in landmarks such as Kaunas Castle, the baroque church of St. Francis Xavier built in 1666, and the city hall, which dates from 1542. The medieval town centre and the promenade were completely renovated in 2016 and are definitely worth visiting. Another must-see in the city is the castle. It was built in Gothic style around the 14th century, at least that's what the archaeological findings suggest. Given its location on the riverbank, the castle served primarily as a lookout post. In 2010, reconstruction started on the castle and it now houses an art gallery in the tower.

Discover Kaunas

The food in Kaunas is generally simple, good and cheap. Lithuanian dishes are often hearty recipes based on potatoes. The national dish is cepelanai, which are potato dumplings stuffed with minced meat or balandeliai, rolled leaves of white cabbage stuffed with meat and rice. Lithuanians definitely have a sweet tooth, so be sure to check out the pastry sections. A tip from the locals on where to go out: Džem'pub. This is a student bar with live music or karaoke every night.
