If you just set out, if you improvise, Kaunas will create a new story for you, the legend of your life. In this city, the doors and windows are flung wide open to culture, so just be curious and you’ll get everything you want. The creative people living here are doing everything they can to make sure that you are amazed by the European Capital of Culture 2022 and will remember your stay in this city for a long time. Chock-full of unexpected spaces and crazy ideas, Kaunas will simply serve a weekend adventure up to you on a plate. Extend your hand to the city and go together to take stock of the unique Art Deco buildings, the street art bright with colour, the historic monuments, and the modern art galleries. And if you inadvertently find yourself next to tables loaded with food and drink on Laisvės Alėja, know this: Kaunas likes to celebrate.
The perfect getaway plan is this: you fly into Kaunas Airport. In less than an hour, you find yourself in the city centre. You get settled in a Bauhaus style room, and an hour later you’re on the old funicular and taking in the city from atop the green hills. After taking a stroll, you stop by the devils at the only museum dedicated to them in the world, have dinner at one of the best restaurants in Lithuania, and spend the evening at a concert in one of Europe’s most beautiful monasteries. Unable to resist its charm, the next day you move to a local hotel where you drown yourself in silence and the gentle hands of the spa specialists.
The mystical Beast of Kaunas, creating the legend of the city, is waiting for you. Don’t be afraid to jazz.
