YOU ARE ALWAYS WELCOME TO KAUNAS

Kaunas was fated to become the capital of Lithuania in the 20th year of the

last century, which can be considered the Gold Age of the city governed by

its first Burgomaster Jonas Vileisis. History tells that even before this

date the city, situated at the confluence of the rivers Neris and Nemunas,

experienced more than one Age of Gold. Kaunas lived through prosperous times

and years of devastation, but it came up again replacing ruins with new

white-towered buildings, the magnificence of which became known in the most

distant lands.

In 1408, Magdeburg rights were granted to the city of Kaunas by the

privilege of Vytautas the Great. In accordance with the current privilege,

we aim to turn our city into a modern place with the developed economy and

high culture.

Kaunas with its 400 thousand inhabitants is one of the most significant

cities of the country these days. It is not only the city of old traditions,

but also a large centre of business and industry. Indeed, Kaunas is the city

of youth with over 24 thousands students studying in five Universities of

Kaunas.

Our city is open for friends and co-operation partners. We kindly give our

hands to investors, who choose our city not because of the cheap labour

force, but because of the high-competence specialists able to solve the most

complicated tasks. The day when the first companies start functioning in the

Kaunas Free Economic Zone will come soon. Their production will reach the

largest markets of the world and make the name of Kaunas known there.

There are so many things that we want to show and share with our friends.

Therefore, we will feel honoured seeing You in such international cultural

events as „Kaunas Jazz“ festival and the annual „Pazaislis Music Festival“,

exhibition „Kaunas 2002“ and the Rockers Fiesta. Our guests will always be

welcome at the newest hotels, clubs and concert halls of the city. Each of

You will be given a chance to see that the city near the rivers Neris and

Nemunas is occupied with studies, work and preparation for festivals, but

the people here will give their hearts to make their guests feel happy.
