Located just in the tree line along the riverbank of the Neman River, alongside the Kauno Marios reservoir, this lovely monastery with its 17 century frescoes has survived the years, wars, invasion and occupation by different regimes, yet continues to be a place of worship,...More

But, apparently, it's not so easy to visit it. You have to ring a bell, and wait for someone to open a door. Closed on mondays.

About an hour is plenty of time to see the monastery itself, but if you have the time to spare, the gardens are lovely - calm and serene to sit and contemplate.

Your 1st day is the Old Town only, nothing more. Half of the objects are almost next to each other, Čiurlionis museum and War museum are in the same building (entrances from the opposite sides).
