Definitely worth visiting! Be sure to take guide services. They're funny, smart and able to introduce you with ninth fort history, old stories. After this you will be overwhelmed by hard Lithuanians past, lifetime in Soviet union and so on. :))

The place was the stage of a historical massacre in Lithuania. You can even feel all the pain there. It is painful to go, but is definitely a must to when you visit Kaunas.

A nicely renovated fort in which the Lithuanian historical museum was made. You could get there by bus, but after leaving the bus you have to find your own way (through the small forest and under the highway) - there are no signs.

There was no cafe when we went last year. Take a couple of snacks and some water with you. You could easily spend anywhere between 3-5 hours there.
