This is the best river running option accessible from central Kaunas. A paved multi-use path runs along the right bank of the Nemunas River for up to 7 km, from near the Great Bridge to the Bridge of Panemunė (Panemunės tiltas). There are lovely river views nearly the whole way. Starting at the Great Bridge, run west along the river. Points along the way:
1.2 km: A series of three bridges that lead to Nemunas Island, with some additional paths there.
3.3 km: M. K. Čiurlionis bridge
5 km: Prie Nemuno scenic spot
7 km: end of path, near the Bridge of Panemunė. Can continue 0.5 km to the bridge, and join Panemunė Pinewood Park route.
