Travel Tips for Palanga
Entertaintmen not only for kids
Basanavicius street is the main entertaintment street in Palanga. In a day time it's quite calm, with many cafes and bars, kid entertaintment, etc. At the evening it becomes a trendy place of entertaintment with tons of people taking walks, visiting bars and cafes with live music, wonderful and noisy athmosphere. It's also the street leading to the pier where everybody goes to see the sunset in the evening as the sun goes down directly to the sea. And if you read all these general tips, you'll know the Key phrase of the page, that .... (I already hear you saying it :)) - all the info is in the travelogue! :) please check it.
Peak of the season is August. The Baltic Sea is quite cold around 18 *C degrees, which means very refresing! Apart this fact it's also salty and has beautiful waves with lots of foam. It's in the West, so you can watch the sunset at the sea, when the sun falls directly into it.
Botanical garden: swans and weddings
As this park is a very relaxed, with beautiful scenery and romantic place you can see quite a lot of weddings there. They are coming to take the pictures.
There are also pools with swans and ducks, people often feed them (with white bread), so they are not afraid of people. You can even see families of swans. Attention when the mother is with litte swans, if you come too close and the male swan is around - he's quite gelous and express his anger obviously. Swans live in pairs, unless the partner dies they are faitful and do not change partners.

"Swiming in Palanga"
Well I need to find my Palanga pictures but I spent a day or two at this beachside resort. I shopped for souvenirs and alsso swam in the Baltics.
Along the beach are free-standing changing booths. The first one I went into was occupied by a lady getting ready to leave. I asked if she spoke English, she turned around and asked ME if I spoke English. What a sense of humor and wit. Turned out she and her husband were from Moscow and come to Palanga every year. I wonder how those Russians learned English. Perhaps they were spies?
As soon as I locate my pics from here, I'll post them. Some of the pics will be frames of video captured by my video camera.
