What people are saying:

The Ninth Fortress is a symbolic attraction of Kaunas County. It is on the northwest corner of the old city. You can see it from the Resurrection Cathedral northbound and then westward. It is an important fortress built by the Nazis during World War II. It is also a large concentration camp. I feel that standing here seems to be able to feel the cruelty of the war at that time, and I feel that peace is hard-won.

    Very strong

    Very strong experience. Sad place with a death smell in it. It’s really big area with 2 buildings and one memorial. The rooms are original.
