"Funicular of Aleksotas" Top 5 Page for this destination Kaunas Off The Beaten Path Tip by indre_dee

Kaunas Off The Beaten Path: 81 reviews and 101 photos


This unique mean of transportation was built in 1935. Authentic traction equipment, which has functioned for more than seventy years, is still in use today, including the genuine pre-war wagon, wooden seats, and stop platforms.
Even today the funicular takes people up the Aleksotas hill, from which the panorama of the Kaunas city centre and Old town is wide open. Kaunas is the only city among Baltic States, where such means of transportation is available.
