Nice bridge

The bridge brings you across the Neman River into the old town of Kaunas. Busy traffic bridge, but still interesting.

It's a fairly odd-looking bridge, seems sturdy! Lots of cobwebs on it. Takes you from Old Town across to the Aleksotas funicular and hill, which is worth seeing!

Nothing is special about it, but nice view point over part of the city. Nearby, a nice church and the old town.

labelling a bridge as an attraction is fine when is the Ponte Vecchio Florence or Charles Bridge in Prague or Tower Bridge London but ...............this is a bridge and here’s a photo if you are interested which is taken from Aleksotas hill which you get to across the bridge and from there there is a nice city view.

The bridge is just a bridge. Do yourself a favor and go visit the hill, Aleksotas Hill, directly behind and above the bridge and be rewarded with a wonderful view of Kaunas (Kovno). As nature lovers and mountain hikers, my wife and I agreed that this small hill behind the bridge was the highlight of our visit to Kaunas.

If it happens that you take a walk along the river you will see the bridge but even if your far away you can still see it....

The unusual thing about it is the soviet decorations. Those are at present still being purged in Lithuania, so it might be worth your while to have a look at them while they are still there.

A rather ordinary bridge, but it's close to Kaunas's truly beautiful old town and there are some great views from it.

Great attraction, especially seeing the grooms carrying the brides across the bridge. Never too late to marry ! 4 Ever Kaunas

Nice bridge, but don't forget to cross the river and climb the Aleksotas hill. You'll see spectacular Kaunas city panaroma from this viewpoint (54.891606, 23.886528). Worth to visit!
