Things to do in Kaunas, Lithuania

 

Kaunas was one of Luca's favorite spots this tour. It ranked high for me too... We left Riga, Latvia by bus to arrive in Kaunas. Vilnius is actually the capital of Lithuania but I read that Kaunas was an even better city to check out. And we are so glad we did!! 

We stayed at an AirBNB, an apartment just on the outside of the main square. My thought was a little bit of a mid-travel break. We were next to a large park and the area seemed nice and quiet and private. What was so great is ALL of Kaunas feels quiet and private. It's has the luxuries of a capital with the quaintness of a small neighborhood. And my favorite favorite part? The street art!
