On January 20th, our city was awarded as Lithuania’s most successful tourism destination. The tourism awards ceremony took place during the annual international tourism exhibition “Adventur” held in Vilnius, Lithuania.
“Not long ago nobody would have believed Kaunas could be noticed in the tourism sector - it’s great to see our efforts have been noticed”, said Simonas Kairys, the vice-mayor of Kaunas, in his acceptance speech, naming new flight routes, the successful way towards UNESCO, the Sugihara house and various initiatives of different sizes meant to expose the multiple faces of the city as the reasons for the recognition. We hope It’s Kaunastic has added some points, too!
