The axis of central Kaunas is formed by two pedestrian streets: the 2 km long "Laisves Aleja" (Freedom Avenue) and its continuation, Vilnius street. Here you will find charming coffee bars, boutiques and bustlers who are eager to please the crowd. The M. K. Ciurlionis Museum is also well worth a visit. It commemorates the work of the lithuanian avant-garde artist who tried to combine paiting and music into a single artistic medium.

The Town Hall Square is famous for its striking churches, the remains of a medieval fortress, the Perkunas House, and the Devil's Museum.
