  • Small and cute local museum. 2nd floor is reserved for the amber. Voice guide in several languages. Clearly the guide writer is an art critic - she/he omitted a huge layer of literature, folk stories, legends and modern cultural references (especially the Jurassic Park movie). So, if you travel with kids, make your homework. Expect for ~2 hr visit. Staff is nice and helpful.
  • One of the must-to-visit places in Palanga, it offers really beautiful range of flowers, statues and of course, a museum that once used to be owned by a count Tiškevičius. Really interesting stuff, and if you get all sweaty during the heat, never worry, because the Baltic sea is just a few steps away from there and the water will surely cool you down!
