“Functioning Monastery”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 January 2012

One thing to note is that this is functioning Monastery operated by Casimirite women, so it is not open all the time. The hint is to go there for a mass on Sunday at 11 am. Most of the Monastery is not open for public yet you can view the church which is really a pearl of European baroque.

Monastery is the largest one in Lithuania built in 17th century for the Order of the Camaldolese Hermits. Later on it was converted to Orthodox monastery, later on given to Casimirite sisters, in Soviet times psychiatric hospital, later on - to the art gallery.

There is plent of parking spaces around it, Kauno marios and city beach is also few hundred meters away, so it's a good choice to combine sunbathing and visit in the summertime. Public transportation is also ample - multiple trolleybusses and minivans can bring you there in about 30 minutes.
