10 of the best alternative city breaks in Europe

10 of the best alternative city breaks in Europe

Kaunas, Lithuania

Lithuania’s second city is Europe’s capital of culture for 2022, and no wonder: it is full of museums, galleries and notable architecture. Kaunas was the nation’s capital from 1920-40, and this golden age left a legacy of scores of modernist buildings, such as the monumental Christ’s Resurrection Church. But it’s not all 20th-century sights: there is a 14th-century castle in Santaka Park, at the confluence of the Nemunas and Neris rivers, and a graceful 16th-century town hall, known as the White Swan.

The most unusual attraction is perhaps the Devil’s Museum, which has a collection of 3,000 satanic figures from 70 countries, while Mikalojus Konstantinas Čiurlionis National Museum of Art is devoted to Lithuania’s pioneering abstract artist. Kaunas also boasts the country’s oldest funicular railways, 1930s Žaliakalnis and Aleksotas, both of which afford panoramic views of the city. Vilniaus Street is the heart of the cobbled old town, full of restaurants and bars, while pedestrianised Laisves Avenue in the new town is best for shopping. Cold beetroot soup (saltibarsciai) is a summer favourite, but also try traditional game dishes at Medziotoju Uzeiga, modern Lithuanian cooking at Uoksas and local craft beer at Hop Doc. Open Kitchen, a street-food market on Nemunas island, runs every Thursday into September. On the outskirts of town, the Kaunas Lagoon park is a lovely place to chill, rent a boat or walk around.

Vilnius is a great place for pleasant strolls. It is green, full of cultural diversity and cozily compact. So compact, that in just a few dozen steps from the gallery, you find yourself in a park, followed by a baroque church, and off to the castle after a cup at the local cafe. Thus, in a short time you get to not just see, but also hear, touch, taste and tune into the soul of the city.
