Kaunas Local Customs: 57 reviews and 61 photos

by matcrazy1

Green-uniformed policemen were rather charmingly nicknamed "cucumbers" by locals :-) in Kaunas. Well, there were more cucumbers in local restaurants than on streets. I found them once at the old town looking for "wrong" drivers to stop and to ticket them.

Just in case... tickets must be paid exclusively in Lithuanian currency (cash only) and always at place. Be prepared...

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
