The medieval Kaunas Castle was built at the meeting point of two rivers – Nemunas and Neris – to repel frequent Crusader attacks. The country’s oldest stone castle is the only one that has two rows of defensive walls (as you might guess, the Crusaders were quite good at attacking cities). Kaunas Castle is open all year round to everyone with an interest in medieval history.

The country’s oldest stone castle is the only one that has two rows of defensive walls (as you might guess, the Crusaders were quite good at attacking cities). Kaunas Castle is open all year round to everyone with an interest in medieval history. Surrounding the castle is Confluence Park, commonly thought of as the heart of Kaunas. It’s a place fit for both relaxation and contemplation. Close to the point where Nemunas and Neris meet, you’ll find a pagan altar where ancient Baltic rites were performed millennia ago. Once you’re done exploring the past, why not climb the hill, where Pope John Paul II and Pope Francis both held Mass when visiting Lithuania.
