Kaunas is the only city which has this oldest means of transport. This "little houses going up the hill" are used at present both as a mean of transport and for entertainment. One of them - Aleksotas Funicular which has been operating since 1935 joins the old part of the city and Aleksotas slopes. You may go up by this funicular to the panoramic viewpoint where you can admire the outstanding beauty of the panorama of the Kaunas city.  A little bit older - Žaliakalnis Funicular has been running since 1931. The trip takes more than 1 minute and up on a hill - a nice panoramic view from monumental Resurrection Church.
