The Old Town of Kaunas is a place that gathers most of the historic buildings from the 16th century. The central point is the traditional market, typical of medieval cities. It is surrounded by houses from four sides, thus giving the unique feeling of the atmosphere of the old, historic city with traditions. The most important buildings to be seen are: the Gothic Basilica of Saint Peter and Paul, two monastic churches and the Town Hall with a clock tower. In addition to the Town Hall and religious buildings, there are gorgeous red-brick houses restored after the war.
Avenue of Freedom
The Avenue of Freedom is a very long promenade with a beautiful line of linden trees in the middle with booths on the right and left side. Tourists come here to buy here souvenirs ranging from magnets, alcohol, honey, fur to wood and beeswax. If you like shopping and handicraft, this is the place to be.
Off the Main Square
It also worth going a little bit away from the Market Square and taking a walk further into the city to marvel at the interesting buildings, atmospheric cafes and restaurants that can be found even in the cellars. During the winter time you can warm up thanks to drinks served there, and while you’re at it try a delicious dessert.
