“Most beautiful street in eastern Europe”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

I had an internship in Kaunas for 6 months and was lucky enough to live in Laisves Aleja for 3 of them. The street is for pedestrians only, except for some streets that cross the boulevard (three if I'm not wrong).
During winter you can find it full with snow, which turns the place into a special scenario. During spring you can watch all those hundreds of trees starting to reborn from April on. During summer all the restaurants place their tables and chairs outside and you can enjoy a nice lunch during a labor day, a beer with your friends during the evening or go partying during weekends.

During spring you can enjoy Kaunas' Street Music Festival, with all kinds of concerts performed by street musicians (even I applied for it). In the end of the winter there is a traditional costumes and handcraft fair that takes place all along the street (I don't recall the name of this event). From the middle of the summer on the street gets new life with all the Erasmus students coming for the second part of the year.

Take a walk from the Soboras church all the way to the end of Laisves Aleja entering the old town. You won't regret. It is really an amazing place to be!

“Deserted”
Reviewed 17 November 2013

I walked back and forward along the whole length on a Saturday late morning/early afternoon in November and it was almost deserted. Quite, quite eerie.

“Main Street”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

Laisves Alley is appr. 2 km long Kaunas' main street. Not only main street it is - it's also a pedestrian only boulevard which makes a big difference.
You'll have a very nice stroll down the Alley (to or from Old Town). There are lot's of restaurants and coffee shops (check the off-streets also), fashion boutiques and stores along the boulevard. It's got plenty of benches to sit under the trees and bike lane.

“Pedestrian zone”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

Laisvves Aleja is where we stayed in Kaunas Hotel It is a very wide and long boulevard (about 3Km) with trees in the middle and shops on either side. Charlie restaurant is also found in this Boulevard. it is worth a visit - good food, inexpensive and rich décor. St Michael catholic church is right at the end of the boulevard. on the other end is the beginning of the Old Town
