Kaunas was a trading partner with the medieval Hanseatic League and each year holds a Hansa Days festival. This year, Kaunas hosted the International Hansa Festival with participation by 100 European cities. We were in Kaunas on the first two days of the festival. For some reason, I didn’t take many photos of festival scenes but we saw a lot of people in various medieval costumes and heard a bit of medieval music. The streets were filled with street food and crafts vendors, as well as crowds of tourists. The report from local friends in Kaunas and an American who came from Vilnius about the festival — lots of fun!
