With its abundance of buildings dating from this period, it surely deserves a place on the UNESCO World Heritage List. It is the European Capital of Culture for 2022. Medieval Kaunas Castle, numerous fortresses, Pazaislis monastery and Devil museum are worth visiting in Kaunas.
KLAIPEDA. Lithuania’s only sea city, its port is home to both cruise ships and commercial ships alike. Heritage of German culture and rich history makes Klaipeda unique. Former Memel takes great pride in its marine traditions. Every year it celebrates those traditions at its Sea Festival, which has been held on the last weekend of July since 1934. Marine life awaits in the Sea Museum with dolphinarium.
