Really learned a lot from our visit here. The audio tour was free and really helped us to understand the exhibits. If you visit Kaunas, you should visit.

This is a must-see in Kaunas, It is situated a little out from the centre and I took a taxi there, and they called me a taxi for my return journey.

The Ninth Fort in Kaunas, Lithuania is fabulous! It is full of history and GREAT for "history buffs" like myself. The fort was built in 1913 when Lithuania was part of the Russian Empire. Our guide was young, handsome, and extremely informative. His English was most impressive! A guided tour is inexpensive. It is cold and dark in the vaults... More

Interesting place for history lovers, a terrible view of holokaust. You can see a 9-th fort of Kaunas defence castle too. Many walking and sightseeing.
