When you land
Expect to pay around €1 for a 30 minute trip to the town centre by bus. When you’re there, a €5 bus and trolley ticket will cover you for the city in terms of travel so it’s a great investment.
Where to stay
If you’re on a strict budget, you’ll find great options on Airbnb – and a quick search uncovers modern, clean and sometimes chic apartments from as little as €25 per night. If you have set aside a little bit more, you can bed down in four and five star hotels in the city centre for the very sensible price of €60 and upwards a night.
What to see
You can pick up maps of the sites in Kaunas and the surrounding area at the Kaunas Tourism Information Centre and Convention Bureau, which is ideally located on Liberty Avenue, one of the city’s main thoroughfares. The Field of Victims, The Ninth Fort, Devil’s Museum, Napoleon’s Hill, and much more should also not be missed in a city with a haunting but extraordinary history.
