We had a wonderful time here on a snowy, low visability sunday. The architecture is great, especially with a ton of snow on it. Wrap up warm though, after 2 hours it's a bit bone chilling! We hired the English speaking tour guide [I'm not sure of his name but he was tall with sandy blonde hair] and he was... More

I was told wrongly in the tourist information that it was open on Monday and I went there :/ take bus 23 or 35, go until the 3rd last stop (after a short passage of the motorway). Cross the street and then use stairs to pass the motorway. You will see the huge monument so you recognise it.

Museum and unusual park in one place. If not interested in WWII or holocoust, you can have a nice walk with breathtaking view to Kaunas. Pictures looks great too!

You can't visit Kaunas without going to the Ninth Fort. Take the 57 taxi bus from the city centre and then walk the last 5 mins. We paid for an English speaking guide £2.50 extra. This was well worth it. There is a very good memorial centre at the beginning. You then walk up to the fort itself, which is... More

This is an amazingly impacting site. I often find myself staring at photos of this monument. Among detail, pain, fear, and hope merged in to one impressive image.

Thats a very interesting attraction for people who are interested in history, war crimes, WW2. Its a very sad and peaceful place and it makes you realize the horror people had to go thru in those times.

You have an up close and personal encounter with the prisoners of the Ninth Fort. An encounter it will be unlikely I will ever forget.

A place worth a visit for someone who is interested in WW II history. It was built as a fort to protect the city, later turned into jail and on a later day turned into concentration camp (death camp). The hole museum if walking slow takes about 3 hours. You can visit exposition alone, but the dungeon (underground passages) must... More

I took the Service Bus from outside the Theatre on Kestucio Gatve, which costs only 60 Euro Cents each way. You can't miss the stop because you can see the monument outside the fort for miles. A short walk and you are at the museum which has three parts, a museum to the oppressed both by the Nazi's and the... More
