It might have been an impressive Castle once, but not now. The park and the river are very nice, so it is worth it to go and see. Nice brick red building with an interesting shape. Not much to see, hence the very cheap price...More

Wow I just love the architecture, simple yet so magical and elegant of this castle. I highly recommend Kaunas and the castle to Americans and western Europeans to visit. Friendly city.

The Kaunas kastle is located at the edge of the historical centre of Kaunas. It is a great place to take some nice photos, just next to it there is the river Neris and the Santakos park.
