Kaunas, Lithuania


Kaunas is the second largest city in Lithuania. The beautiful old town is situated at the confluence of two rivers, where there is a historic fort and cathedral. Having seen many capital cites over the last decade or so, many are so overrun with tourists that it detracts from my enjoyment.

Kaunas on the other hand is small and quiet (even though Ryanair fly there from Stansted and Luton). You can walk the cobbled streets where there are so many bars and restaurants, all reasonably cheap. Visit soon before everyone finds out about it.
