Kaunas Local Customs: 57 reviews and 61 photos

by matcrazy1

Most or almost all small businesses like restaurants, stores/shops were equipped with cameras usually fixed to their external walls in the Old Town of Kaunas. The Big Brother was watching. Well, the Big Brother was the Soviet Union there in not so old past...
By the way
Lithuania and generally all 3 Baltic states (Latvia and Estonia) were regarded as the most safe part of the Soviet Union in the past. I felt there safe both at day and in nightime.
