The monument at the Ninth Fort (Devintojo Forto Statula) is a Soviet-era memorial to the estimated 30,000 Jews and 20,000 other persons who were murdered here during the Holocaust. The statue by artist A. Ambraziunas stands about 105 feet high and 300 feet wide and was unveiled in 1984. The Ninth Fort had previously been used as a prison before... More

During our visit to Lithuania it was recommended that we pay a visit to Ninth Fort. We chose to arrive by taxi as we weren't sure of bus routes. It was a cold and overcast day but seemed to fit the feel of the site. The sculpture itself is amazing. You can spend quite some time looking at it and... More

I used live next to this place and visited so many times. Very worth to go inside the museum and tunnels with guide. Outside monuments are on a list of the most strange buildings created by Russians sculptors.

We took a taxi from our hotel in the city centre to get here, as the bus journey looked slightly complicated. Upon arrival, I asked not once - but twice - for an English tour guide and paid for our tickets. We entered the first museum, which was interesting and took us less than an hour to see what we...

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
