Hello,

My advice for You would be:
1. Nature. Park inside city "Panemunės šilas" (Gailutės g. 4), "Ąžuolynas", very nice view from Aleksotas (Kaunas region) survey site and http://www.kaunomarios.lt/20776/informacija-lankytojams/pazintiniai-pesciuju-takai.html (here You could find paths for walking, choose english in page. Wonderfull nature! :))
2. History. The main places - Kaunas castle, Pilies g. 17, Kaunas 44275, old town, Pažaislis monestary, Petrašiūnai, Kaunas 52430 and funicular, Aušros str. 6.
3. Shopping. Two biggest centers Mega (Islandijos pl. 32, Kaunas 47446) and Akropolis (Karaliaus Mindaugo pr. 49, Kaunas 44333).
4. Donelaičio str. 11, Valančiaus str. 9, Laisvės al. 21/ Nepriklausomybės a. 13, Kaunas. Here are adresses for lithuanian dishes. You could be brave and try "cepelinai" (boild gratered potatoes, inside meat), "šaltibarščiai" (red cold soup), "balandėliai" (inside meat, outside cabbage) and "bulviniai blynai" (potatoes pancakes).

I hope You will enjoy my town :)
