Panemunė roads, castles and manor houses

Travel itinerary

Panemune Castles. This is a picturesque stretch of road stretching from Kaunas to Jurbarkas, full of various historical sites. On one side of the Panemunė Road, you’ll see the winding Nemunas River, while on the other side you’ll see medieval castles. During the tour, you will learn many interesting things about castle defence, how not having a ruler or a castle that has not survived to this day can tell you how big it might have been. We will visit not only castles, but also castle mounds, and see the Nemunas.

Sightseeing tour of Kaunas (Old Town, and optionally the Devils Museum, Zoological Museum, Presidential Palace, etc.). Later, a cruise on the Nemunas and Neris rivers. The cruise starts from Kaunas Old Town Pier, sailing along the Nemunas past the old Aleksotas Bridge, the Aleksotas settlement to the newly built Zalgiris Arena. During the trip you will see the beauty of Kaunas Old Town, its architectural heritage and the city’s renewal. You will also have the opportunity to see the confluence of Lithuania’s largest rivers, the Nemunas and the Neris, sail into the Neris and admire the 13th-century Kaunas Castle and the “Soldier of Freedom” statue. During the cruise, you will be able to listen to an audio guide recording – you will learn interesting facts about the city of Kaunas. You will end your journey at the unique Gothic-style St. Church of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary, where you started your journey.

Excursion in Raudondvaris, Fort IX. Upon arrival in Kaunas, you will be welcomed by a medievally dressed guide who will tell you about the trade and self-government privileges granted to the city by Duke Vytautas in 1408. Students will read out the oath that a person had to take to become a true citizen. They will dance a community dance, which was probably danced here by the guests of the burgomaster almost 500 years ago. They will also learn how to fold a letter in the old-fashioned way, which they will be able to take back as a gift to their family members
