If you turn to the north-east and have some walk, you find yourself at the Cathedral, which was founded in the days of Vytautas the Great. But, on the whole, the buildings at this area were mainly created in the 18th century. To the north-west from the square, the ruins of the Kaunas Castle are situated. Unfortunately only some parts of the walls and tower are left undamaged, but it still creates an unforgettable impression.
If you get tired of all these ancient buildings, go to the New Town (it's to the east of the old one). Being in the New Town you can't, but notice Freedom Avenue (the large pedestrian zone with lots of shops that lie along it). There also takes place St. Michael's Church that faces the Freedom Square. Another interesting place is the Mykolas Žilinskas Art Museum. There one can enjoy the best art collection in Baltic.
