By car

At the crossroads of the A1 (E85) Vilnius-Klaipėda highway and the Via Baltica, Kaunas is an attractive if somewhat challenging place to visit by car. Its road network is a frightening squiggle of badly signposted asphalt full of holes and populated by a high percentage of drivers who give the impression they never took a driving test. The city centre features a rather complicated one-way system and parking meters that don't accept coins. If you still want to drive there, remember that car crime is a national pastime. Use guarded parking at all times and never leave valuables in your vehicle.
