Castle · Tourist Spot
Located at the edge of old town Kaunas, Kaunas Castle represents a Gothic-style castle thought to have been built during the mid-14th century. The castle served as a strategic military outpost that guarded nearby cities and the roads between important trade routes. By the start of the 21st century, only approximately a third of the original castle remained intact. It was renovated in 2011, but some of the original walls remain. Climb the stairs to the upper levels for expansive views of the surrounding town and scenery. You can walk within the walls for free, or pay to go into the round tower where you'll find an art gallery. Plan your visit to Kaunas Castle and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Kaunas day trip website.

  • Kaunas Castle houses an art gallery. The castle is open to tourism, and hosts occasional festivals. Major reconstruction work started in 2010 and ended in 2011. New sculpture "Freedom Warrior" (or the Vytis) was erected near Kaunas castle in 14 July 2018. The Freedom Warrior was almost seven meters high and was cast in Ukraine. A bronze horseman with a horse was placed at the castle of Kaunas on a granite pedestal.
  • Very beautiful castle to take a look at. Surrounding is also pretty gorgeous. One thing disappointed me is that every time I wanted to go inside the castle, it was closed for some reason, but aside from that, very cool place
