Kaunas was actually the first proper stop on our Lithuania trip in August 2006. Although my flight to Lithuania landed in Vilnius, we decided to explore Kaunas at first.

Kaunas is situated at the confluence of the rivers Neman and Neris. With a population of 360.000 it is Lithuania's second biggest city and also a former temporary capital.

While Vilnius is very international, Kaunas is said to be the "most Lithuanian city", whatever that means. I must admit that during our 3 days in Kaunas I really enjoyed the charming atmosphere of the city.

Among the highlights of our visit in Kaunas was an international meeting with members of both VirtualTourist and Hospitality Club.

    Hope you have a great time in Lithuania and Belarus, Holger! It'll just be Lithuania for us in October (Minsk will have to wait for another time!), but I'm hoping to see Kaunas this time around. Thanks for your great tips!

    This city seems to be well worth a visit. The beer looks yummy :-)

    Great Kaunas Page, Holger! Instead of Gdansk, I opted for Kaunas and Vilnius this year. Your page will surely be useful on that trip. Ah, and BTW, greetings from the Gibraltar apes to you too :)
