Great gift idea

Paris is crowded. Venice is expensive. And London… well, it’s just not quite exotic enough.

If you are craving a European mini-break that has plenty of charm but is under-the-radar enough to avoid the tourist throng, then how about Kaunas in Lithuania?

With its leafy avenues, pavement cafés and Medieval castle, this city on two rivers has its fair share of delights.

‘But what about the nosh?’ we hear you cry. Well, how do potato pancakes with sour cream, layered buttercream cake and honey mead all sound to you? Yeah, thought so.

If a trip to Kaunas piques your fancy, then have a nosy at this Big Deal on a three night stay in a comfy Ibis hotel with return flights from Edinburgh.

Experience Lithuania

Found at the intersection of two rivers, Kaunas is a tranquil spot for strolling down avenues by day and throwing yourself into the lively bar scene by night.

This Big Deal on a three night stay is very flexible as you can plan your trip for autumn, winter or even early spring. Needless to say, Kaunas looks pretty in all of those seasons.

The offer includes three nights in the Ibis Kaunas Centre hotel with return flights from Edinburgh International airport. Prices are based on two people sharing a standard twin or double room.

Central hotel

Ibis Kaunas Centre is a modern hotel not far from the main train station, bus station and Old Town area. The popular pedestrian street, Laisvės Avenue, is also close by.

Every guest room is air-conditioned and decorated in an elegant style with a warm, welcoming colour scheme. All rooms have a flat-screen TV, desk and wardrobe, with showers and hairdryers in the bathroom.

An international breakfast is available each morning, including hot dishes. A snack menu is also available in the bar 24 hours a day.

The hotel offers car rental and an airport shuttle service, making it easy to get around.

Cultured city

Based in South-Central Lithuania, Kaunas was formerly a Medieval fortress and at one point, Lithuania’s capital, meaning it’s peppered with history. It is also due to be the European Capital of Culture for 2022, so you can expect plenty of arty attractions.

The Old Town area is particularly fascinating and includes the 14th century Kaunas Castle, which has a riverside beach behind it. In fact, this is a city of two rivers, for it is at the intersection of the Neris and Nemunas.

Kaunas is definitely a cyclist’s city, so you may want to hire a bike and whizz down the leafy avenues, stopping off for a hearty slice of cake in a coffee shop (supposedly there’s a blackberry latte at e/way café that’s just begging to be tried – you heard it here first).

Other highlights include a baroque monastery, historic fort and the ornate Kaunas Cathedral Basilica. For a unique experience, head to Kaunas Underground Museum of the Blind and feel your way around the exhibits with the help of a rope.

It’s green, it’s peaceful, it’s arty and you can tuck into some of that indulgent Lithuanian cuisine while you’re at it. What’s not to like?

So why not grab this Big Deal and give yourself a mini-break with a difference to look forward to?
