First of all, I am living in this city at the moment, so there is no chance that you will not meet me if you're coming (smiling). Ok, the city is interesting - first of all, it is not so very tourist-like, but there are lots of things to see. Museums (even the Museum of Devils), theaters, cinemas, photo-shops (where a good film costs around 2 euros and the development of the film is only 80 cents) and of course the main streets.

There are two: the Freedom Avenue and the Vilnius St. These are the main streets if you wish to take nice shots – enter any crossroad, any road that crosses those two main streets and you will find what to shoot. Personally, I like the naked man statue (girls, did you hear that?), because it is situated in the very lines-design architecture background, so it is very interesting to use fisheye cameras. Anyway, if you come during the cold period, be aware, that the temperature goes even to the minus 30 C (my cameras are used to that, so no problem for me). Use slide films in summer, but please remember that you will have to take them home with you undeveloped – in Kaunas there are no developers for slide films, not to mention the cross-process which is like “oh my God, they killed Kenny!” for all the workers in the photo-shops. So please, come to the city, where two main rivers of Lithuania – Nemunas and Neris – meet together, and I will personally show you the castles, the mountains, the “not natural sea”, the damn ghettos of the WWII and lots of other interesting things. Friendly advice – the city is not very colorful, so please take your color-splashes with you too.
