Lithuania's third largest city has a rich history dating to the 12C, a wonderfully preserved center, and several intriguing museums.

Klaipeda is a city in Lithuania situated at the mouth of the Dane River where it flows into the Baltic Sea. It is the third largest city in Lithuania and has a complex recorded history, partially due to the combined regional importance of the Port of Klaipeda, a usually ice-free port on the Baltic Sea, and the Akmena-Dane River. The city was incorporated into Lithuania during its time as a Soviet Socialist Republic and has remained Lithuanian following its re-establishment as an independent state.
