    in the club (pic not mine)

    We're having quite nice parties there sometimes. had one and few days ago :). It's a club with disco, programmes and on Thursdays even men's strip ;) . during the big games of basketball they also have big screen for watching. Great place for fun. There's also a place for pool, and a calmer place "hall of hunters" , love it, with a fireplace and hunting interior. Great place for a simple evening fun with dances, friends and so on.

    Dress Code: very casual

    1. nothing,

    Alaus Restaranas Avilys: Full of young folks

    by matcrazy1 Updated Oct 17, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    ALAUS  RESTORANAS  AVILYS - ENTRANCE

    This was a very nice place to meet someone, to talk and to taste beer. It was two in one: restaurant and mini-brewery which brewed Avilys beer (not my favourite taste but... you may try it). Unfortunately its interior located underground was full and there were no place for us on Friday after 10.00 pm (it was open till 2.00 am on Friday). There were many young folks (up to say 25 yo) there.

    Dress Code: Casual clothes, I mean jeans and T-shirt or so.

    Senieji Rusiai restoranas: In beautiful cellars

    by matcrazy1 Updated Oct 17, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    CELLARS  OF  SENIEJI  RUSIAI  RESTAURANT (17TH C.)

    I got to know that the name of this restaurant, on my picture, that was Senieji Rusiai meant "Old Cellars" in Lithuanian language. Indeed, the restaurant was arranged in the cellars of the 17th century. The interior looked very interesting and was a mix of old authentism and modern facilities. More: in my restaurant tips.

    Dress Code: Elegant or... casual clothes, what you want.

    Senieji Rusiai restoranas: Underground music at night

    MUSIC  AT  NIGHT  IN  SENIEJI  RUSIAI  RESTAURANT

    I continued evening walk along Vilniaus gatve (street) and at about 10.00 we entered nice looking Senieji Rusiai restoranas. These two guys, on my pictures, played some, quite interesting, music there. Well, they stopped to play after maybe 20 min.

    Dress Code: What you like. There were a few costumers only both in casual and in more elegant clothes.

    Church of the Holy Body of Lord: There was! Baroque edifice in Kaunas!

    by matcrazy1 Updated Oct 17, 2006

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    CHURCH  OF  THE  HOLY  BODY  OF  LORD

    As I already stated, there were almost no Baroque buildings in Kaunas but many Gothic and Renaissance-style structures instead.
    But I found this baroque building, on my picture, located at the eastern end of closed to traffic (except for bicycles) part of Vilniaus gatve (street). It was Church of the Holy Body of Lord and Dominican Monastery built in 1682-1690. Surely it was closed at night.

    Dress Code: June evening was quite warm, long sleeve T- shirt/blouse was OK for a walk.

    Suvenyrai: Nighttime window-shopping

    LITHUANIAN  DOLLS - SOYVENIRS

    When we left Avilys alaus restoranas, we walked Vilniaus gatve futher eastwards. Well, I didn't find very interesting window shopping possibilities during my nighttime walk along main shopping street of Kaunas' old town that was jist along Vilniaus gatve (street).

    Well, Kaunas difinetely wasn't, say Wien or Berlin with hundreds of pretty clothes, shoes etc. displayed in heavy lighted and decorated shop's windows. But, anyway, it was interesting to take a look at gifts and souvenirs displayed at windows of a few souvernir stores/shops (suvenyrai).

    Dress Code: June evening was quite warm, long sleeve T- shirt/ blouse was OK for a walk.

    Avilio terasa: First beers :-)

    by matcrazy1 Updated Oct 17, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    DO  FOLLOW  THIS  SIGN :-)

    It was getting dark before 10 p.m. when we started to look for a place to eat something light and to taste Lithuanian beer.

    Well, just in case you didn't have Lithuanian cash (litas), there was ATM cash (bankomatas) run by Hansabankas at Vilniaus gatve 13 which accepted cards of Visa and Eurocard/Mastercard system.

    We followed the sign, on my picture, to get to outdoor but roofed terrace/patio of Avilio terasa restaurant/bar where we enjoyed Lithuanian crepes, blackberries cake and tasted Avilys beer brewed in mini-brewery located in cellars of nearby Avilys restaurant (Vilniaus gatve 34). There were a few costumers there (exclusively Lithuanians) which I found unique in generally empty town at that time. It was nice and cosy atmosphere there. More in my restaurants tips.

    Dress Code: Casual dress was accepted, I mean jeans and T-shirt. June evening was quite warm, long sleeve T- shirt/blouse was OK.

    Interneto clubas: If you are VT-addicted... :-)))

    by matcrazy1 Updated Oct 17, 2006

    INTERNET  CAFE - ENTRANCE

    Have you already caught VTA = Virtual Tourist Addiction? Not yet? Never mind, if you are reading this words you are at serious risk. It's a new disease, dangerous and with no cure but there is large support group (for free) instead. Well, my health insurance dosn't cover VTA.

    Well, walking Vilniaus gatve past 10 p.m. I surely - as suffering for VTA - found this internet cafe on my picture. Well, I didn't get inside although it was open (10 am - 12 pm) and costed only 2 Lt per hour. Did it mean that I was not at all VT-addicted?

    Dress Code: Casual dress, I mean jeans and T-shirt for example.

    Vilniaus gatve (street): Red and... navy blue bricks

    by matcrazy1 Updated Oct 17, 2006

    MADE  OF  RED  AND... NAVY BLUE  BRICKS  (ENLARGE)

    This pretty, made of red bricks building, on my picture, stood at the corner of Vilniaus and Dauksos gatve (street). I paid attention to unique and strange design of its ground floor wall made of navy blue bricks put among regular red bricks (enlarge my picture). There was a bookstore (knygynas) located there, surely closed in the evening.

    Dress Code: June evening was quite warm, long sleeve T- shirt/ blouse was OK for a walk.

    Vilniaus gatve (street): Gothic Kaunas versus Baroque Vilnius

    by matcrazy1 Updated Oct 17, 2006

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    BRICK  EDIFICE

    Vilniaus street and the whole Old Town of Kaunas was a mix of Gothic and Renaissance-style structures, as I noticed. What a difference with mostly Baroque Vilnius. Why? Well, look back at the history and gold times of Kaunas in the 14th to the 16th century and Vilnius in the 17th - 18th century. Notice that Vilnius was mostly populated by Poles and belonged to Poland long centuries whereas Kaunas was always deeply Lithuanian. Add Jewish influences in both cities.

    Look at this, brick house, on my picture, which reminded me, at least partly, neo-gothic building of the Witkowski Collegium of Jagiellonian University in Krakow, Poland.

    Dress Code: June evening was quite warm, long sleeve T- shirt/ blouse was OK for a walk.

    Vilniaus gatve (street): Two floor houses with pitched roofs

    by matcrazy1 Updated Oct 17, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    HOUSES  AT  VILNIAUS  GATVE  (STREET)

    From the northeastern corner of Town Hall Square I entered main walking street of the old town called Vilniaus gatve.

    The cobbled street was almost empty before sunset. I paid attention to two-floor, old houses with pitched roofs on both sides of the street. Well, the chimneys had small pitched roofs as well. There were old-fashionable street lamps put along Vilniaus street.

    Dress Code: June evening was quite warm, long sleeve T- shirt/ blouse was OK.

    Basilica of SS. Peter and Paul: Huge basilica built in 1408

    by matcrazy1 Updated Oct 17, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    KAUNAS  BASILICA

    I noticed very huge edifice, part of it on my picture, located at northeastern corner of Town Hall Square where main walking street Vilniaus gatve started to go eastwards. It was surrounded by old houses, so it was impossible to take a good picture of the whole structure.

    It was Basilica of SS. Peter and Paul (Sv. Apastalu Petro ir Povilo Arkikatedra Bazilika) built in 1408. I got to know that it was the only Gothic basilica (since 1921; cathedral since 1895) in the whole Lithuania. Well, I noticed many Renaissance and Baroque addings in its style.

    Dress Code: The church was closed in the evening. But next day (Saturday) I noticed inside locals attended a holy mass and dressed very well (men in suits with ties).

    At Town Hall Square (Rotuses aikste): Duck made of bricks :-)

    by matcrazy1 Updated Oct 17, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    BRICK  HOUSES  AT  KAUNAS  TOWN  HALL  SQUARE

    Walking just before sunset I paid attention to architecture of houses around Town Hall Square (Rotuses aikste) was different. I liked especially these brick houses, on my picture.

    There was restaurant and bar called Antis there. Antis means a duck and also false mass media sensation in Lithuanian language. Antis is also the name of one of the most popular Lithuanian rock bands ever. Did they play there in the past?

    Dress Code: To a restaurant in the evening in Kaunas you can dress casual clothes, I mean jeans and T-shirt, unless you are invited to a business lunch or diner.

    At Town Hall Square (Rotuses aikste): Telephone booths/boxes

    by matcrazy1 Updated Oct 17, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    TELEPHONE  BOOTHS/BOXES

    Red telephone booths/boxes, on my picture, were located at the northern side of Town Hall Square (Rotuses aikste). They were good example of beautiful, new and modern, Kaunas small architecture. Am I wrong?

    Dress Code: June evening was quite warm, long sleeve T- shirt/ blouse was OK.
