Amazing Amber, Seaside Culture

Formerly known as Memel, Klaipeda is a unique historic city – with roots stretching all the way back to the reign of German knights. It’s a glorious and royal city too, as Klaipeda was once the capital of the Prussian Kingdom. Today, Klaipeda is a modern city, known for its creative, innovative design and archi¬tecture and, even more, for its friendly and welcoming people. This relatively small town is well known for its grand annual festivals, such as Jazz festival and Sea festival. The cultural scene offers everything from world known music concerts to sizzling jazz clubs, bars, museums and galleries.
