Two years ago, we recommended five Instagram accounts focusing on different angles of Kaunas. As the popularity of the social network is still growing in Lithuania, there are a lot more worth following today. Here are our favourites. All very kaunastic!
The girl behind the account has the talent to notice the smallest details invisible to passers-by. All of her pictures feature detailed descriptions (in Lithuanian) and inspire you to go out there and discover the details yourself.
A few months ago, Martynas Slapšys moved to Kaunas from Vilnius and bought a lot of black and white film. In his posts which are scans, Kaunas looks like a city from a movie. Martynas develops film in his bathroom!
They are what they say they are – just a bunch of cool kids living in Kaunas. It’s an excellent account for those who want to find out what teenager life is all about these days. The kids visit a lot of cool exhibitions and other events, too.
In 2022, Kaunas will become the European Capital of Culture. The team behind the project are already deeply involved in developing the program. They broadcast a lot of the initiatives on Instagram – and they’ve got a great visual taste.
A private initiative posts old pictures from dozens of collections. The account mostly focuses on the past 70 years, but older posts appear from time to time.
Nominated as the best restaurant in Kaunas by a few different experts, Numan is also very busy on Instagram. We bet it’ll take a week or two for you to book a table after you follow the account!
Uoksas is also a great restaurant that we’ve mentioned more than a few times on our blog! Their Instagram account reveals what happens outside of the kitchen, too – expect a lot of pictures of (edible) Lithuanian nature. Yum.
Luna is a kaunastic dog that we haven’t yet met in real life! We were, of course, amazed to see the new account on Instagram – Luna tends to visit the most kaunastic places.
Love architecture? Then help this account grow! Moderated by Paulius Tautvydas Laurinaitis, a kaunastic architecture historian, the profile focuses on the vast heritage of modernist architecture in Kaunas.
It’s not only about the dunks and the results. The Instagram feed of BC Žalgiris, our most loved basketball team, goes beyond a regular sports account. We love the stories part - very often, when the team travels, they’re trusted to one of the players. That’s when the fun starts.
Ice hockey is aiming to become #2 sports in Lithuania, and the Kaunas team is working a lot to help achieve that. Backstage madness, fans, mascot life and beyond - the account is mainly active in the cold months, obviously. But not only.
