Klaipeda Old Town Walking Tour
Lithuania with its unique history, language, and culture, is the biggest of the three Baltic States situated between neighboring Latvia, Belarus, Russia, and Poland. Historically, this has proven to be a hazardous location and Klaipėda offers an intriguing insight into the complex history of the region and its inhabitants.
Your tour includes contemporary as well as historic sites, tales and insights from a local guide. Today Klaipėda is a tranquil coastal city but a sample of the forces that have affected the region, including a fascinating pagan past with frequent migrations, Lithuania's status as a once European superpower, the Lithuanian Grand Duchy, important trade routes, the Teutonic Knights, Soviet occupation and the German and Prussian expansions.
