Re: Riga-Kaunas

There is a rail website, but it has problems:

You probably have to go to Vilnius first.

If you are trying the reverse of going from Riga to get on an airplane in Kaunas, it will not happen. Its 7 hours alone to get from Riga to Vilnius. You would need to go the day before and stay in Kaunas

Look here:

Hope this helps.

Re: Riga-Kaunas

There is no way you can make that without spending the night in Kaunas. There are 3 ways to go. You can take a train from Riga to Vilnius, and then train or bus to Kaunas. But it is slow and at one time there was a train only every other day. There is a bus from Riga to Vilnius and train or Bus to Kaunas. You can also go from Riga to Klaipeda, and then a bus to Kaunas. There is a municipal bus that goes past the Kaunas Bus Station to and from the Airport. I was last there in 2007 and the buses ran to the airport at about 05:45 and there after every 30 minutes as I recall. Of course these days with economics as they are, things may have changed.

There is no way you can make that without spending the night in Kaunas, yes.
Direct way from Riga to Kaunas is via Šiauliai or via Panevežys. No need to go to Vilnius or Klaipeda, unless you like a long ride. There are very few buses Riga-Šiauliai, but at least 10 buses Šiauliai-Kaunas, starting from 12:00, last one departs at 17:**. Same in Panevezys: some 11 buses starting from 12:00, the last one departs at 19:15.
So you can take ANY (earliest) bus from Riga's bus station to Šiauliai (the best option) or to Panevežys (these buses go further on to Vilnius, but you have to buy a ticket to Panevežys). Some of these buses go from Riga to Kaunas (not via Vilnius), but not daily.

"...Bus Ecolines ,Eurolines not available.."

Maybe not available. At least all these buses from Šiauliai/Panevezys to Kaunas are not from Eco/Eurolines. There are some 10 or more different companies in LT, same in Latvia.

Travel Tips for Kaunas

Meeting point

by satara

In the middle of Laisves avenue there is one big fountain which usually serves for local people and tourists as the meeting point. While waiting for your friend or date to come it's possible to visit department store, grocery store or some garment stores which are situated around the fountain.

Viesbutis? What's that?

by matcrazy1

Excuse, it's more Lithuanian than Kaunas General Tip. I will transfer it to my Lithuania page soon.

There were often large advertisements VIESBUTIS, like on my picture, put on buildings in Kaunas and Lithuania. Viesbutis means HOTEL in Lithuanian language. Well, usually, but not always, English (and Polish :-) name hotel was added but often smaller and easy to miss esp. for driving a car visitors, like me.

Laisves Aleja

by bugulma

Laisves Aleja is the longest pedestrain street in Kaunas. By the way, I read in the guidebooks that it is the longest pedestrian street in Europe with 1 621 meters long in opinions of the residents. Here you may find a lot of shops, cafe and interesting sculptures along the street.

In not so old past...

by matcrazy1

I found this public phone for coins, on my picture in... Communications History Museum. Well, they were used during Soviet occupation of Lithuania, till at least 1992.

I remember almost identical public phones from my kiddy times in Poland. Hmm... they were out of use most of the time. Luckily it changed both in Lithuania and Poland. Did it change in deep Russia as well?
