Kaunas City Municipality

Kaunas, located in the confluence of Nemunas and Neris rivers, with almost three hundred thousand inhabitants is one of the most significant cities of Lithuania. It could be described as a city that never accepted its role as the second city in the country. It is not only a city of old traditions, but also a large centre of business and industry. It can also lay claim to be a city of young people with over 35,000 students (the largest number in Lithuania) studying at one of the seven universities here.
