This is a scenic run through several parks in central Kaunas, anchored by Oak-Wood Park (Ąžuolyno parkas), which boasts the largest urban stand of mature oaks in Europe. Add-on options include more paths in the parks or connect to our ‘runseeing’ tour.
Start in the centre near St. Michael the Archangel’s Church. Use Laisvės al./Krėvos g. to access the first park, Ramybės (Old Cemetery). There are pleasant paths crisscrossing the park, and several monuments. Head out the north end through Vytautas Park, which connects to Ąžuolyno Parkas (Oak-Wood Park) on a path passing an old fortress. Enjoy the gorgeus oaks on a ~4 km loop of the perimeter on wide, wooded paths. Exit the park at the northwest end, passing the National Museum of Art/Kaunas City Museum into the small City Park, using the path at the north end to access Rūtų g. to access the famous Kaukas Stairs — a good place to get the heart rate up, while seeing the planting and fountains!
