If you regard European history as a matter of importance, you must visit the Historical Presidential Palace in Kaunas. Not only will you catch a glimpse into the short-lived independent Lithuania between 1918 and 1940, but also you will get a broader outlook on deep...More

It was very cold so we wanted to visit anything. Have to say after being round in Lithuania and read a bit already no big surprises here. Was a bit bored and building itself is not impressive at all. You easily pass it by.

We saw the outside of the palace and looked a bit at the photo exhibition there what made our walk through Lithuania a little bit more interesting. We couldn't enter the building, though.

During a walk around the very small old town of Kaunas you'll stumble across this impressive palace. The museum is of limited interest and I was hustled out because it closes at 5pm. The large horse chestnut tree outside yields excellent fruits - if you...More
