Situated between the Neris and Nemunas rivers, Kaunas is known for its old town, which, though smaller than the capital's, is in much better condition.
Explore Kaunas' surroundings by going to Druskininkai (Svetingumo vartai, Musical Fountain, &more), Merkine Observation Tower (in Merkine) and Trakai (Uzutrakis Manor Estate (The Tyszkiewicz Palace) & Trakai Island Castle Museum). There's lots more to do: steep yourself in history at Ninth Fort, see the interesting displays at Devil's Museum, pause for some serene contemplation at Cathedral of St. Peter and St. Paul, and take a stroll through Laisves aleja (Liberty Boulevard).
