      Single room for rent?

      by LianoB Online Now Jan 28, 2014 at 2:18 PM

      Hi there! I'm a 30 years old boy from Italy looking for a single room in Kaunas ,Klaipeda or Vilnius for at least 3 months but likely even more. Do you know someone who rents a room? Or a website/forum where i can find one?

      I want to live in a shared apartment with students or young and cool sociable people who love nightlife.
      I'll come there for work but i'd like also to make a lot of friends and have fun.

      I don't mind if the apartment is not in the centre, but i expect to spend around 100€/month for the room.

How much would it cost to get a taxi, approximately? Are busses often crowded? We were thinking about renting a car, but my husband is a bit scared to drive there. Is the traffic bad in Kaunas and Klaipeda? Thank you in advance!

      Hello all
      I'm going to spend a night in Kaunas soon and i was wondering if maybe i would need 2 nights there? I will not be enjoying Svyturys all the time of course ;) I'd like to see everything cultural, touristy, historical while there... so do i need more than 1 day for this? I'd also love to see whatever is worth seeing near the city... castles, parks, etc. So, all advice and tips are welcome! :)
      Also, is Marijampole worth visiting? I need advice on that one!
      And finally.... is it possible to hire a car in Kaunas and return it in Vilnius? If anyone knows a company who does this, would be great to hear about it
      Thanks everyone!

    • Slobodka Yeshiva

      by yashad1 Online Now Jan 16, 2011 at 8:00 PM

      What is the exact address, including the side-street address, of the new Beis-HaMedrash/Slobodka Yeshiva building located on present-day Kernaves (formerly Jesiboto) gatve, on the corner of Vezeju gatve in Vilijampole?

      This is a four-story building, and a commemorative plaque erected in 1991 is prominently displayed at the building's entrance.

      The original Slobodka Yeshiva was located only one block away on Paneriu gatve 9 and Kernaves gatve 12.

      Thank you to the two people who responded to my first post on October 27. Any information that you can provide will be appreciated, as my grandfather's family prayed there over a century ago.

    • Kaunas - Vilijampole

      by yashad Online Now Oct 27, 2010 at 12:25 PM

      My maternal grandfather and his entire family primarily lived on Mesininku gatve in Slobodka (Vilijampole), and were butchers for at least three generations.

      The Butchers Kloyz (Synagogue) was located on the corner of Ariogalos gatve and Linkuvos gatve, where the Kovno Ghetto Memorial is located. This building address is either Ariogalos 20/21 or Linkuvos 20/21, and a wooden house is still there. What is the distance and proximity between this memorial and this house address?

      My great-great grandfather lived on Ariogalos gatve 74a, and his son lived nearby on Kokliu gatve 9. Other relatives also lived nearby on Ariogalos 97 and Veliuonos 19. Moreover, there was also a synagogue on Veliuonos gatve 29, and this building still exists.

      What were the street addresses of the Old and New Beis-Medrash and the Old Great Synagogue in Slobodka/Vilijampole?

      Lastly, behind Mesininku gatve, directly in the middle of this street, is Plateliu gatve (Sinagoga Gas). I was informed by a fellow researcher that this little street/alley had synagogues (kloyzn and shtiblech), prayer-houses and small yeshivos (not to be confused with the much larger and famous Slobodka Yeshiva on Paneriu gatve 9).

      Can anyone provide historical information, as well as photographs and images, of these streets and addresses?

      40 minutes by taxi from the airport to the bus station, is this realistic?

      by Vihren Online Now Apr 23, 2010 at 8:26 AM

      I am arriving at Kaunas airport with a Ryanair flight scheduled to arrive at 23.55. I have absolutely no luggage and I can easily be the first passenger to board off the plane, I have done that many times, also Ryanair have the habit of arriving 10-15 minutes before their schedule. I need to get some money (preferably - to exchange them, but at this time of the night probably from an ATM machine), then find a taxi as quickly as possible and get to the main bus station before 0.35, when the night bus for Klaipeda is leaving, buy a ticket somehow and board the bus. Do you think it will work? Is the ATM machine at Arrivals easy to find? Are there enough easily findable taxis at the exit of the airport at this time? Is the distance from the airport to the main bus station more than 20-25 minutes by car during the night? And will I be able to buy the bus ticket in the last minute at the bus station, or from the driver? The bus is TOKS-bus, from Minsk through Vilnius and Kaunas to Klaipeda and Palanga, does anyone know if this bus usually comes on time, or later, or earlier? Is there going to be some place for me inside or it is usually full? I am planing to do this on a Thursday night.
      Also, one last question - What fare should I expect from the taxi? Approximately how much will the taxi to the bus station cost?
      It is very important for me to manage to do that, because otherwise I am stuck in Kaunas for the whole night with nothing to do, and there isn't even a point in getting a hotel for just 4-5 hours since if I miss the night bus I will leave super-early in the morning.
