Read. Buy a book and immerse yourself within its pages in a cosy café nearby.

A library is another excellent place to pick up and read an exciting book, especially if you read Lithuanian. Kaunas county public library (Radastų g. 2) and Kaunas V. Kudirkos public library (Laisvės al. 57) will always welcome you with open arms and shelves full of thrilling stories. One of the departments of Kudirkos also gives away vinyl records and DVD movies.

Dine out. Kaunas is earning a name for itself as the city of gastronomic discoveries. We keep hearing heartfelt compliments not only from Lithuanians but also visitors from Scandinavian countries, Germany, and Great Britain. Try out the legendary doughnuts of Kaunas, order a meal tasting course in one of the new modern restaurants or explore your own cooking potential in a culinary studio. Did you know that you can even learn the secrets of Georgian cuisine in Kaunas?

Go to the movies. While the historical cinema theatre “Romuva” is being renovated from the ground up, its staff has taken to showing us movies in one of the Kaunas drama theatre halls (Kęstučio g. 62). Here you can find the favourites of the international Kaunas film festival and other cinephile gatherings. Also here in “Romuva” – Lithuanian premieres and the unbelievable ideas of the people behind the cinema theatre, which turn going to the movies into a new experience altogether. (on holidays in July and August!)

Lose yourself in the museums. There are dozens of them in Kaunas. From the most famous, such as Vytautas the Great War Museum or Tadas Ivanauskas zoology museum, to the less known memorial houses operated by the National M. K Čiurlionis Museum of Art and the Kaunas city museum. You can also find clown, sports or diamond museums in Kaunas. All of them and many more cultural facilities are in the “Culture shock” map from the “It’s Kaunastic” series. You can find the digital version of it here.

Go shopping. The “Akropolis” mall of Kaunas is not only interesting for the plethora of international brand names found inside, a SPA centre, a cinema theatre and many more facilities, but also for the value of its architectural decisions. A hundred years ago, it was the land of the german businessmen Tilmans.

The “Mega “mall is an ideal solution for those travelling to and from Kaunas. For those who wish to pair their shopping with sightseeing, we recommend the Old Town – the M. Valancius street is an alley of boutiques and galleries. You can find many interesting spots in Vilnius street as well. Many fashion fairs are happening in Kaunas as well – follow the event news and look for the codenames such as “Fashion Bazaar” or “Pop-up”.

Entertain yourself. Active entertainment under the safety of a roof exists not only in the heart of Kaunas but also in the districts further from the centre. For example, you can enjoy volleyball throughout the entire year at the sandy arena “RIO”, swim (or surf) at the swimming pool “Girstutis” or try to master the new Olympic sport in the bouldering centre “Miegantys drambliai”. That’s not even mentioning escape rooms, airsoft and cart racing!
