Located just 60 miles (100 kilometers) from Vilnius, Kaunas is situated at the confluence of the rivers Nemunas and Neris, and is charming not only for its historical buildings and green parks, but for its eclectic collection of museums.

Upon arrival, explore its historic heart, lined with linden trees, pedestrianized avenues and beautiful riverside views. You can visit the M. K. Čiurlioni National Art Gallery, primarily devoted to the Lithuanian artist and composer Mikalojus Konstantinas Čiurlionis. Alternatively, go to the Devil’s Museum (Žmuidzinavičius Museum) to see an amusing collection of carved devils from around the world.

You will also visit the 16th-century Pažaislis Monastery to learn about its troubled history. The largest monastery complex in Lithuania, the glorious Italianate Baroque building has variously been commandeered as an Orthodox church, psychiatric hospital, archive, and art gallery.
