  KAUNAS CASTLE
by matcrazy1
 
 

Kaunas castle was built at the confluence of the two largest Lithuanian rivers: Nemunas and Neris in the 13th century. It was the first defensive castle in Lithuania. Kaunas started to grow around the castle. To be honest the very poor remnants of the 13th century Castle were recomstructed or better to say rebuilt recently.


Address: Papillo gatve 17, 3000 Kaunas, Lithuania
Directions: 3-5 min. walk from the northwestern corner of the Town Hall Square (Rotuses aikste): walk westwards and turn right, the castle at the end when you pass a depression (former moat).
