TOUR DESCRIPTION
 

Klaipeda Shore Excursion

This half day Klaipeda shore excursion visits the resort town of Palanga including it's Amber Museum, followed by some free time before your driving tour of the port city of Klaipeda.

Lithuania is known as the "Land of Amber" because the Baltic sea scatters amber along the country's beautiful shoreline. Palanga became a summer resort in the 19th century because of its sandy beaches, pine forests and mild climate. When you arrive in Palanga you stop at a beautiful park where you enjoy a walk to the city's famous Amber Museum which is housed in the 19th century palace of the noble Tyszkiewicz family. You also enjoy the palace's popular botanical gardens.

After visiting the museum and gardens you stroll to one of the popular beaches where you enjoy a short amount of time to see if you can find a piece of Amber yourself. Then you enjoy some additional free time in the charming town which has tree lined streets with small wooden bungalows that are used as summer retreats.

Following your visit to Palanga you drive back to Klaipeda where you enjoy a driving tour. Klaipeda in general is a large industrial port city. For many centuries the city was ruled by German speaking authorities. During WWII the city was used as a German submarine port and ultimately the city was almost completely destroyed. Your tour focuses on an old German part of the town which has been restored to its former glory. After your tour in Klaipeda you return to the ship.
