Living in Kaunas

The picturesque Lithuanian city of Kaunas is a center of the country's historic, economic and academic life. With a population in excess of 310,000, it is the country's second largest city after the capital, Vilnius. It is also the only city in Europe to have temporarily been its country's capital during the interwar period, thus earning it the nickname, "The Temporary Capital". As a newly arrived expatriate in Kaunas, you might in fact find 'picturesque' to be an understatement. The city is one of the most beautiful in Eastern Europe, with numerous wonderful pedestrianized streets, landmark buildings and historical sights. Expats living in Kaunas will have plenty to explore, notably the grand Kaunas Cathedral Basilica, the 19th century Kaunas Fortress, which is one of the largest in Europe, and the 14th century Kaunas Castle. The city is a paradise for anybody with a love of architecture and culture, and even expatriates living in Kaunas who prefer skyscrapers or small towns will have trouble resisting this city's elegant charm.

Moving to Kaunas

Situated roughly in the center of Lithuania, Kaunas is an important transport hub and the railway services and roads to the city are very good. However, expatriates moving to Kaunas may find it easier to fly, as the city has two airports very close-by. One, Kaunas International Airport, is among the largest in the Baltic States, while the smaller S. Darius and S. Girėnas Airport is one of the oldest, celebrating its centenary in 2015. Before setting off, expats moving to Kaunas may like to browse the InterNations website for extra information on expatriation. Our Expat Magazine contains a good amount of content on expat issues like cross-cultural communication, expat experiences, family & relationships and so forth. The InterNations website is also a great way to get in touch with the local international community, who you can contact through our discussion groups, forums and private messages to organize a meet-up when you arrive or simply get information on life as an expatriate in Kaunas.
