“nice and nothing more”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

The Old town is a pretty small area, actually just a street with bars, cafes and souvenir shops on both sides. The Kaunas tower, the city hall and a couple of churches are pretty small in size and rather modest. A couple of hours are enough to see all of it. But of course going to a bar for a beer or other drinks will require more time. Based on my experience, don't buy amber and other souvenirs at the shops that are around the old town "square", the farther along the street from it, the cheaper the same souvenirs are.

“Great place”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

Great walks across cobbled streets, plenty of bars restaurants and photo opportunities.
They don't use the euro so make sure you take currency, nice shops with bargains to be had....
Bit of a gem, like Cheq used tobe before the stag and hens ruined it...

We specifically stayed in Kaunas to visit the Old Town, and were very disappointed by the size but it was lovely and quaint.

“Cute but a bit run down”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

Nice cobble streets, restaurants and cafes, good for a nice stroll and dinner. It is a bit run down comparing to say Riga or Vilnius.
