Kaunas Days Festival

Kaunas - is the second largest city in Lithuania, which was even the capital of Lithuania lots of years ago. Today this is a city, known for its basketball club "Žalgiris", basketball player Arvydas Sabonis and so on. So it is so natural, that the city with such history has got its own festival, which is called the "Kaunas' Days" festival (sometimes it is called only the "Day", not "Days").

Kaunas – is the second largest city in Lithuania, which was even the capital of Lithuania lots of years ago. Today this is a city, known for its basketball club “Žalgiris”, basketball player Arvydas Sabonis and so on. So it is so natural, that the city with such history has got its own festival, which is called the “Kaunas’ Days” festival (sometimes it is called only the “Day”, not “Days”).

When? Each year, in May – the days can be changed depending on the weekends and so on … But the idea is to make the festival on the 20th of May, because in the year 1463 at the same day the king of Poland and the Grand Duke of Lithuania Kazimieras Jogailaitis gave the privileges to Kaunas town, which remain till today. The festival has got lots of interesting activities and shows, but there is one, which I can not miss every year. It’s the “old cars” show, which gathers all those crazy old car lovers with their retro Cadillacs and Mercedes Benz wheels. You can find all those cars in the city parks, or even in the streets, as there is a special “drive-through-the-city-campaign” every year. But as for me, the best thing is that I can take all my cameras and go to the park, where all those cars are left for public eyes… and hands, of course. You can touch those old “bodies”, smile at them, even talk to them. All those retro cars lovers do understand what I want to say, right? Wanna see the old “wheels”? Or maybe you have one of your own? So please make sure, that next year, you will be there. Glass of beer with me – for the same price of the journey. (Smiling)
