Many things to learn and try about Kaunas and its history. Great views from inside the castle, the surroundings are also beautiful

There are a few items to see, comparing this museum to others, but it is still pretty new, so they've got a lot of room for improvement. The location is wonderful, for it's in the Old Town, so you can easily reach all the other interesting places around. It's good,when you don't have too much time but you want to... More

Visited this weekend during the Medieval Festival - wonderful weather and so many stall and food outlets. Not keen on loud music but the sound testing suggested that those keen on rock would be satisfied.

Worth a visit. Near the river has history. And cheap to visit. Combine this with an old town walk and river walk

It looks lovely on pictures yet very little of the castle is left (or rather rebuilt). It may serve as a place towards one walks through nice old town but in itself it does not pose more than a nice picnic site

The dungeon is small but interesting, kids can control a virtual knight in the dungeon & dig for archeological treasure higher up in the tower. Well worth a visit.

This partly restored castle occupies a wonderful location at the end of the old town area, overlooking the river and a public park that gives no hint of the conflict that it saw when it was the target of Teutonic knights. From the top of the tower you can get an understanding of why its location was so important and... More

I have decided a castle is everything I wanted in a rental property and more. I have always wanted to be king for a day, but why not be king for a life time. I will be just and stern over my tenants (Subjects) as that is what is required of a good monarch. Although those who are late on... More
