This was great for getting you up the hill but I did notice that the locals didn't have to pay to use it which was fine, it wasn't a lot. It was being renovated when I was there but still working.

Fun experience in very old travelling machine. You can go up and down a hill or if you chose you can go stairs.

We visited in June 2018. The funicular is not operating. We checked at the tourist office, they said it is broken. The other funicular, Aleksotas, is working, though at the top there is a lot of construction work going on, so there is no view.

It doesn't last long, but it's cheap and historical. Kids will like it. Some historical notes are provided.

Not very far but worth going up as at the top you can then visit a church with a viewing platform on the roof. Costs 70 cents to go up, you simply jump on a pay at the top.

This is the oldest Funicular in Lithuania, built 1931. Ride climbs 142 meters (486ft), so I can highly recommend the ride, at least downward to easy pain on your knees. Tickets are sold only at upper station, so you pay upon exit upward and pay...More

This Funicular goes up at 50 cent each to Christ's Resurrection church. Instead of walking up hill. The funicular is very old and works so well. The interior is just as beautiful all wooden seat. One would go down and the other go up. A...More
