Travel Tips for Palanga

Palanga History I

by ginte

(info from the net)

Palanga settlement, first mentioned in 1253, was a significant trading and pagan center in the Middle Ages. In the first half of the XIX c it was known as a seaside resort. News about new treatment methods without a doctor spread quickly. Popularity of Palanga increased after the visit of well-known Polish writer Adam Mickevich in 1824. Soon Palanga became so popular that all local houses, huts and garners were occupied with vacationers.

Due to the earls Tiskeviciai, Palanga became a real resort. In the eighties of the XIX th c earl Juozapas Tiskevicius made huge investments in the future resort: in 1877-1880 he opened a spacious restaurant and the first hotel, which was called The Kurhauz, a few summer house complexes were built, a summer theatre was established, stroll paths in the forest were laid, bathing cabins on the beach and bathing places with marble baths and heated water were built. In order to make a landing-stage, a sea bridge was built in 1884-1888. Soon it became one of the most popular attractions and symbols in Palanga resort. Earl Tiskevicius established a resort, which was very popular among rich people from various Russian provinces and, therefore, created competition to Klaipeda.

After the death of earl Juozapas Tiskevicius, his son Feliksas Tiskevicius inherited Palanga. In the southern end of Palanga he built a new palace and formed a remarkable English-style park around it. The park has been diligently preserved until now, therefore, it is very popular among citizens and guest of Palanga. The Tiskeviciai family continued to have new resort territories planted, summer-houses and warm bathing-places built and specialized healing-homes established. Many of these buildings have been preserved till now. They decorate the old Palanga and serve the vacationers' needs.

Go to a similar place - Sventoji (15 minutes by a mini bus) or hire a bike, there's a path for bicycles it's not difficult to go there and back surroundend by pine tree forest, go to Kretinga: it's a small town, very cute, with another esate, winter garden (orangery) inside, particular but beautiful monastery of bernardins, Lurd (take a mini bus o normal bus from the bus station, 15 minutes to go). If you are not visiting a Curiorian Split - change your mind! You must go there to see fantastic dunes, a Lagon and the Sea. make a day trip or go there for a couple of days (from Klaipeda take a ferry or order an excursion in the tourist office).

Birute Hill

by ginte

Birute hill is located in the south west of the Amber Museum. This hill has a romantic history. It used to be a pagan sanctuary and the observatory of celestial bodies. Today it is a peaceful and quiet place, especially popular among infatuated couples. At the foot of the hill there is a Lurd initiated by earl Tiskevicius. In summertime poetry readings are held here. From the top of Birute hill you can enjoy a broad sea panorama.

Welcome to the seaside resort Palanga

If you like it crowded then this is the place to come on Lithuania's coast. Unfortunately sunny weather cannot be guananteed but clouds can make the scenery much more impressive anyway.

I always came here without prebooked accomodation. The tourist office is very helpful in helping you to find a place to stay according to your budget.
