Kaunas

Situated between the Neris and Nemunas rivers, Kaunas is known for its old town, which, though smaller than the capital's, is in much better condition.
Step out of Kaunas to go to Alytus and see White Rose Bridge, which is approximately 1h 10 min away. Next up on the itinerary: take a stroll through Old Town Kaunas, step into the grandiose world of Kaunas Castle, examine the collection at National M. K. Ciurlionis Art Museum, and test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms.

Characterized by the majestic Baltic coastline and adjacent white sands, Lithuania boasts lush green forests, hidden lakes, and coastal wetlands. A nation with a turbulent history, Lithuania houses the remains of a former nuclear site and the remnants of defenses used to strengthen the frontier of the Tsarist empire. At the same time, it pays homage to its national heroes, honored in sculpture parks and museums throughout the country. Today, Lithuania boasts a thriving musical, cultural, and visual arts scene, hosting a range of festivals and concerts year-round.
