Kaunas Local Customs: 57 reviews and 61 photos

  CLOSED AND MONITORED :-)

Most small businesses like restaurants, stores/shops were equipped with street cameras, alarms and heavy wooden doors, like on my picture. Add gratings at windows on the ground floor of many houses. Was it casual anti-theft protection or a sign of very high risk of burglary in Kaunas?

Well, I felt in Kaunas as safe as in, say Berlin, Wien or Krakow :-).

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
