Kaunas Castle, Kaunas

3.6
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 .

  • Was smaller than expected. Didn’t go up the castle for that reason (thought the view wouldn’t be as splendid) + didn’t want to pay for the entrance fee. But the castle from the outside was good enough for the visit.
  • Nice place to see, if you up for a nice walk and see beautiful things this is a place to come. Everything nicely done up.
