Kaunas' best sights

Essential Kaunas sightseeing

You’ve checked into your hotel. You’re having lunch and you’re asking yourself what’s the best museum in Kaunas? What’s the most beautiful church in Kaunas? There’s no easy answers to these questions, but the following top sightseeing places should definitely be visited if you’ve got the time.   

Out of town but highly recommended, the AB Underground Printing House is a perfectly preserved space hidden under a greenhouse where several brave Lithuanians printed and distributed illegal literature during the last decade of the Soviet occupation.

The story of the slow construction of the Christ's Resurrection Church is as unlikely-sounding as some of the stories in the book it celebrates every Sunday morning. Whether you’re an atheist or a believer, this stunning Art Deco masterpiece is a Kaunas bucket list essential.

Briefly home to the NKVD and better known as a mass Holocaust murder site, the Ninth Fort is worth the effort it takes to get there. Pay your respects on the killing field for free and visit the Ninth Fort Museum for some shocking information about the fort’s grim history.

If you’re reading this and it’s warm outside, the VDU Kaunas Botanical Garden is a top Kaunas sight worth visiting for lots of fresh air and fauna galore.
 
Possibly one of the best museums in Kaunas, the Vytautas the Great Military Museum is an entire history lesson under one roof.
