“Interesting.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

Historical place, that's worth a visit. Much history about the baltic countries and especially WW2.
We took a taxi here from Kaunas centre and you get to see a lot of the surroundings while travelling to the Ninth Fort.

The exhibitions are very well presented. I learnt a lot about the Soviet and Nazi occupations of Lithuania.

The Ninth Fort was very interesting and worth every minute spent there. The female guide was very sweet and well informed. Her English was also very good.

“A smaller awschwitz”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

Seeing the fances, the cells and imagine the guards with their dogs... My husband,s father was here... Shivering feeeling in our bodies and souls... The place is so threatening, yet even from this some have managed to escape.
It is important to vistit, pay respect to the victims and always remember for ever and ever. be on guard. That this will never happen again. Anywhere.
