Unfortunately i arrived after 6 pm, so it was closed by then. the surrounding area was beautiful, close to the river. the castle area was bigger than one in Riga, too.

Kaunas is the second largest city in Lithuania. It’s a city where two rivers meet- Nemūnas and Neris.

Very surprisingly small but don't let that stop you. There's lots to see and the entrance fee is also surprisingly small. The best part is the dungeon below with a little surprise when you turn the corner! We had a thoroughly good couple of hours...More

Te is historical and worth seen, but it is small. The bast part is down starts. A little bit expensive for so little.

Very small castle but still worth a visit. Its a great example of a medieval castle. Won't take you that long to show yourself around.

In nice weather there's no nicer picnic spot than the benches at the top of the drty moat. These benches run right around. The tower also houses an informativ emuseum if the weather isn't quite so nice. It's one of my favourite spots in Kaunas,...More

The museum it small. The most interesting part is definitely the basement. Very nice place to go on a spring/summer day.

beautiful medieval castle, right on the river. Can be underwhelming if you only see it from the outside - it's also smaller than anticipated. So only go if you've never seen anything like it

There's a nice castle in the center of Kaunas. We couldn't pass it without visiting. The exposition isn't huge, there's a heating inside, the staff is friendly, the entrance fee isn't high (2 euro). Good place for visiting if you have free 40min-1hour..
