Interesting and sad visit

A must see when in Kaunas. Very sad part of the Lithuanian history. The guides are really good and the visit shocking. A place to think.

The museum of the IX fort is located out of the city, but it can easily be reached by bus (nr. 23)which cost 0.7 euro. The ticket includes a holocaust and soviet period museum with exhibits and free headphone guided tour. On up the hill is the actual fort. Suggest to take guided tour, it's even more interesting.

Had a good time. I greatly enjoy history and enjoyed watching how things used to be, the fact the we had access to walk through the whole prison was amazing. Well displayed and we'll kept up.

If you are in the area and a history enthusiast, this is one of the "must-see sights". It is both an impressive part of a fortification system and a Place that played a key part in one of the many genocides in the previous century. Concrete workers will also enjoy this place, since the giant soviet monument over the victims... More

We skipped the guided tour in the first area because we had 2 younger kids and wanted to shorten the entire tour. This was fine. The rest of the tour was very interesting. When driving up, you have no idea of the vast area the Ninth Fort covers. There are areas for the political prisoners as well as Jews during... More

Though out of town it can easily be reached by bus which is very cheap. When you get off the bus there are no signs or anything to say where to go! Cross over the road and head back towards the busy dual carriageways. Then follow a narrow path around the side of the last house and continue up a... More

Ninth forth is of course really good example of defense fortification of it’s time, but it’s also impressive monument of WW2 and all of it’s horror. You feel the history, you feel the sorrow. Read all the signs, that way you understand what has happened there, and also remember walk around whole fortification and look all the details of early... More
