A place of death! A place of the drama! Impressive cold rooms with many beds, with only a stove in the corridor, impressed the objects in the ghettos, especially the baby carriage that makes you tears ... The list of the dead ... but especially...More

The taxi ride to and fro was 16€ but it was worth it to experience this place. The old prison was very interesting and a bit scary to think what happened here. The monument and burial ground outside was moving.

Definitely worth visiting! Be sure to take guide services. They're funny, smart and able to introduce you with ninth fort history, old stories. After this you will be overwhelmed by hard Lithuanians past, lifetime in Soviet union and so on. :))

There was no cafe when we went last year. Take a couple of snacks and some water with you. You could easily spend anywhere between 3-5 hours there.
