Points of Interest in Palanga
Palanga has a beach, but it is very crowded in summer, since all Lithuanians come to their short coastline. Amber museum is also interesting.
Popular events in Palanga in the near future
- Palanga Pier It is a tradition to visit the pier around sunset. This can easily be included as part of a visit to Basanavicius street (see below).
- Basanavicius street The focal point of Palanga, and the highlight of any visit to Palanga, is J.Basanavicius street, running between Vytauto street and the pier. Along this street can be found most of the town's bars, restaurants, nightclubs, funfairs and souvenir shops. People-watching is a fashionable, and fascinating pastime here.
- The beach The beach extends in several kilometres either direction from the pier. Given that Palanga is Lithuania's main tourist resort, expect the beach to be very crowded in summer. The busiest areas are either side of the pier. Though the beach is less crowded further from the pier
- Botanical Garden To the south of the city center is Palangas Botanical Garden, which is more like a forest and boosts the Amber Museum. Its a more a quiet place, especially in winter, but is nice to stroll around. A bit further into it, there is Birute Hill a forested sand dune, where excavations showed settlements from far back in time and now has a little chapel. From there you can take a nice walk back into town via the beach.
Items made from amber are one of the town's specialities, and range from inexpensive jewelry and small pictures with pieces of amber (or imitation amber) stuck on, up to very high quality items made of the real thing and costing thousands of Litas. There are good opportunities to buy souvenirs on your way to the beach, where tents with souvenirs are set up.
At the beach, you can enjoy a cheap cheburek and cold beer (sold by young peddlers). A bit of a warning though, the chebureks are not made in a local restaurant, and are deemed "illegal" for unsanitary conditions in which they are thought to be made, but, I have tried many chebureks and I haven't had food poisoning (yet). So buy from the peddlers at your own discretion.
