Via kaunas airport or where spend a night?

by Amalker

Sveiki!

Plans to take a Ryanair route from Kaunas. I need to be in airport at 8:00-9:00.
But i travel from Minsk, and all buses\trains arrived to Kaunas close to midnight or not early than 2:30 (train Kharkov-Kaliningrad). So, here is the question, where to spend several hours, and how to get to airport early morning?

Acu!

There are City buses that go to Kaunas Airport from route coming from downtown. Last I knew the first bus is just before 06:00 and about every 30 minutes after that. I am not sure where you would want to spend your time until then. It would be very boring, but the bus station is open all night as is the airport if you can get there late at night.

hello
Seams, Ryanair does good for Kaunas:)
Kaunas railway and bus stations are in the town center. Bus nr.29 goes direct to airport. The first one is at 5.56 and the last- at 21.30. Busses go aprx. every 30-35min. and ride takes about 40min. depending on traffic.
Unfortunally, you'll have to spend the night in the station or in airport. Because there is no point in booking hotel for so short visit.
Good luck
Remi:)

If I was you, I prefer to sleep better for 4- 5 hours in even cheap hostel and to be fresh next day instead of spending hours in station without sleep...

Travel Tips for Kaunas

Internet Cafe

by yumyum

There are several internet cafes just off Laisves square if you look carefully. I always used the one on the main drag in Old Town which is an acutal café. The only drawbacks are the small screens and that smoking is allowed.

It's on Vilniaus 24, Tel. 40 74 27

Map of Kaunas

by matcrazy1

I was driving by car to Kaunas and I was driving around Kaunas as well. So, I had to buy map of Kaunas. If you are going to visit "only" Kaunas centre/downtown (on foot) you don't need maps of the whole Kaunas area. In this case, a map included in some travel guides to Kaunas (or even Lithuania) maybe enough. Buy a leaflet "Kaunas Klaipeda in your pocket" (8.00 Lt) available in any kiosk, bookstore, tourist information office, at some hotels as well - the map inside was enough for walking around.

If you drive a car you definetely need detailed map of the whole area of large Kaunas. Before entering Kaunas I found and bought on petrol/gas station that one on my picture.

Kaunas miesto planas (12.00 Lt) contained 3 maps:
- 1:25,000 map of great Kaunas;
- more detailed (no scale marked) map of the downtown/centre (with marked main buildings, points of interest etc. although named in Lithuanian only and not very detailed), one-way streets, trolleybus and bus lines marked;
- map of Kaunas apskritis (county).

Map had hard cover and contained info (addresses, phone numbers) on emergency, accommodations, theaters, museum, art galleries and expositions. Add street index. All in 4 languages: Lithuanian, English, German and Russian.


Clickable map of Lithuania (online) is here. Search Kaunas and zoom in to get detailed map with numbers of houses marked.

How to get and give flowers

by satara

Kaunas has many festivals in spring time and during such festivals like "Kaunas jazz" or Kaunas birthday "Kaunas days" don't be surprised to receive some flowers from festival organizing people in the streets. One Swiss girl approached me with this question when she received a tulip from someone in Laisves avenue. She said that was very cute tradition:)
Ah, by the way - if you want to give some flowers to your Lithuanian friends or colleagues, don't give them an even number of flowers (like 6, 8, 12 etc.) because that's not appropriate. In Lithuania people bring an even number of flowers only for deceased people. I was a bit frustrated at first when in the USA I received a dozen of roses, but seems they can't count in another way - it's dozen or half dozen and no other way ..:)

Cobbled streets

by matcrazy1

Most streets of the Old Town of Kaunas were paved with cobbles which surely added some old charm to pretty, oldest part of Kaunas. To be honest I can't remember any other city with larger number of cobbled streets. I think about Strasbourg, France.

The cobbles surely were not flat. Watch your steps... Just in case... I was told that Lithuanian public health service is not the best in Europe.
