Being the 2nd largest city of Lithuania, Kaunas has traditionally been the academic, economic and cultural hub of the country. Bulging out of the confluence of two major Lithuanian rivers, Kaunas is renowned as the partying capitol due to its countless street bars and underground eateries. The glowing bastions of the Kaunas Castle and the enchanted macadamized alleyways of the Old Town bring about the charming archaic touch to the district. Students that study in the prestigious institutes around the city, drive its nightlife. Kaunas is best known for its modern architecture dated back to the beginning of the 20th century – Art Deco or Modern style is the pride of the city.
