Kaunas is the only city in Lithuania to operate not one, but two funiculars – one in Žaliakalnis and another one in Aleksotas. A treat for engineering and dieselpunk enthusiasts, the funiculars provide an easier way to get up the steep hills of Kaunas.

Kaunas is the only city in Lithuania to operate not one, but two funiculars – one in Žaliakalnis and another one in Aleksotas. A treat for engineering and dieselpunk enthusiasts, the funiculars provide an easier way to get up the steep hills of Kaunas. The Aleksotas funicular, in operation since 1935, connects the old part of the city with the slopes of the Aleksotas District. The quaint little wagon will take you to the Aleksotas Observation Deck, which opens up into a gorgeous urban panorama for all seasons. Travelling at a speed of 1.4 m/s, the Žaliakalnis funicular – four years the senior of its counterpart in Aleksotas – will lift you and 24 other passengers up at the city centre and arrive at the Kaunas Jesus Christ's Resurrection Basilica in less than two minutes, offering a panoramic view over the city in the meantime.
