Situated between the Neris and Nemunas rivers, Kaunas is known for its old town, which, though smaller than the capital's, is in much better condition.
Venture out of the city with trips to Druskininkai (Svetingumo vartai, Musical Fountain, &more), Merkine Observation Tower (in Merkine) and Trakai (Uzutrakis Manor Estate (The Tyszkiewicz Palace) & Trakai Island Castle Museum). And it doesn't end there: wander the streets of Old Town Kaunas, explore the historical opulence of Kaunas Castle, learn about all things military at Atomic KGB Bunker, and get a taste of the local shopping with Laisves aleja (Liberty Boulevard).
