Very pretty. Not quite as interesting as Vilnius, but still worth checking out. The Museum of the Devil is pretty interesting!

One reason to love Kaunas is that it is the second most pedestrian-friendly city in Europe (after Venice). Pedestrians dominate the Old Town and the Laivės Alėja, the longest pedestrian zone in Europe—1.7 kilometers long. This zone starts with a somber memorial to Romas Kalanta, a student who burned himself to death in 1972 to protest communism’s oppressive regime. From that monument you can see, at just over a mile away, the end of the pedestrian zone—the grandiose St. Michael the Archangel Church, located on Nepriklausomybės aikštė (Independence Square). If you count the Old Town’s foot-friendly areas (where cars are rare), then the total pedestrian distance is over three kilometers (two miles).
