One of many
Budget or sth. like that
Nobody from Klaipeda knows anything about some cheap and good accomodation in that city? I don´t look for expensive hotels and I heard non-good words about Old city hostel. Maybe some room in privat for 3-4 nights from 7-10 Euro/night, hmm?
RE: Budget or sth. like that
I am almost sure that you will not get acomodation for 10 euro. Not good and even not bad. One of cheapest and good place to stay is hostel "Litinterp", www.litinterp.lt , aprox.20 euro including breakfast. They also have contacts with privat people renting rooms, please, contact them.
One of cheapest hotels in good location www.aribe.lt price aprox. 35 euro.
have a nice stay

Travel Tips for Klaipeda
One of the nicest man-made landscapes
Take the ferry over to the Kursiu Nerija (Couronian Spit, Kurische Nehrung). Your first impressions will suggest you a fantastic nature but it is one of the most remarkable man-made landscapes in Europe. If it would be the pure nature it would be nothing else than huge dunes wandering around and covering from time to time all vegetaion or settlement which might have happened there. Fascinating dunes still exist but all is tamed by the forests planted and the various constructions at the beach of the Baltic Sea. Before that was done the dunes throughout many centuries covered from time to time whole villages. Some of the highest dunes in Europe are south of the main village Nida.There is a fine beach along these dunes, of course, but when you are more into fun and 'beachlife' Palanga, a few km north of Klaipeda and the Couronian spit is the better option. The nice nature around it.
One of the central point of the old town of Klaipeda. The theatre was built in XVIII century and was renovated in XIX century. In front of the theatre is statue of Ann from Tharau, placed in 1912 (in WWII it was destroyed and placed again in 1990). The monument is related with Simon Dach, German poet, who was born in Klaipeda and studied in Konigsberg University (Now, Kaliningrad in Russia territory). Mr Dach fell in love with Ann in the first sight but she was engaged already. The Simon Dach wrote the poem "Ann from Tharau" which is popular in German languages countries.
Not much left from old Memel
Unfortunately the town is in this respect not comparable to Vilnius and Kaunas. Most of the older buildings have been destroyed at the end of WW2, the most remarkable relieving one is the post office built around 1890.
Daytrip to the Curonian Spit
The Curonian Spit (Neringa) is a 98 km long narrow sand peninsula which is connected to the Russian mainland near Kaliningrad.
Its northern end is situated just near Klaipeda, but can only be reached by ferry. Half the peninsula belongs to Russia, the other half is Lithuanian with Nida as its main resort.
Nida is the quiet counterpart to busy Palanga. It is home to a little fishing harbour and impressive sand dunes. Other attractions include the Thomas Mann Memorial Museum, a big sundial and an Evangelican-Lutheran Church with connected cemetery.
From Klaipeda you can get to the Curonian Spit by ferry and then further by bus.
Brewery and nice location
The pub is in the downtown of Klaipeda, on the bank of the river Dane, and it is in very old storehouse. It has three floors, on the third floor is kind of night club. "memelis" offer program, caraoke, competitions, latin evenings, please, check their website for details.
Food is OK, but not the best in dowtown, but they have own brewery, so you can taste their fresh made beer. You can stay also outside on terase. food is ok
