The Vytautas Park

Probably a unique park in Lithuania, Vytautas Park holds a broad range of old school roller coasters. During the Soviet Occupation, the Vytautas Park was an amusement park and is open till this day. When you visit Kaunas, this charming park is a must see place. Take advantage of the cheap old school courses like The Orbit, or take a bit more low key fun ride on a merry-go-round with your kids. The park offers you a chance to rent a small car to drive around the territory. And of course, what amusement park doesn‘t have bumper cars, right? The historic layout and a warm atmosphere always were a big attraction for artists and creative minds, especially now, when the park is not as popular. Take a quiet stroll amongst historical carousels and take in the inspiring atmosphere.
