1Kaunas, located in the confluence of Nemunas and Neris rivers, with almost three hundred thousand inhabitants is one of the most significant cities of Lithuania. It could be described as a city that never accepted its role as the second city in the country. It is not only a city of old traditions, but also a large centre of business and industry. It can also lay claim to be a city of young people with over 35,000 students (the largest number in Lithuania) studying at one of the seven universities here.

Gothic architecture, defensive fortresses, footprints, left by various ethnical groups that used to live there, museums, Kaunas as the capital of the First Lithuanian Republic, rationalism and functionalism in architecture – these are only several of the possible routes for the first acquaintance with Kaunas.

Kaunas was always fated to become an important historical and cultural city in Lithuania. In 1408, Magdeburg rights were granted to the city of Kaunas by the privilege of Vytautas the Great. During the early 20th century, governed by its first Burgomaster Jonas Vileisis, Kaunas was the home of the Lithuanian Government and the capital city; a period considered by many as the golden age of the city. However, history tells us that even before this date, the city, situated at the confluence of the rivers Neris and Nemunas, experienced many other periods of great prosperity and national importance.

2Hundreds of years of cultural heritage is preserved in the historical and architectural monuments, museums, theatres, art galleries and churc hes of Kaunas. In Kaunas we are proud of the importance that our people have played in contributing towards making the rich cultural, historical, and academic tapestry that is Lithuania.

For business and investors, our city offers friendly, open, and creative space for partnerships and co-operation. We can provide you with clear, practical advice and guidance to doing business here, as well as access to a highly educated and skilled labor force and a large selection of buildings and development parks for you to start and grow your business.

Kaunas – Why wait? We look forward to seeing you very soon.


To the most beautiful city of the world - Kaunas City and to the sweet citizens. I wish you the "highest" regards from the highest peaks of all continents. 02/12/98
