Palanga is a resort town where the Sventoji and Graze rivers run into the Baltic Sea. The history of Palanga goes back a long time, as is evidenced by archaeological finds: not far from town Sventoji, archaeologists have come across a campground which suggested that the area was inhabited some 5000 years ago.
Today Palanga is the most popular sea resort in Lithuania. The famous white sand, the beach that seems to stretch forever and pine groves attract thousands of both Lithuanians and foreigners. There are two must-sees in Palanga: Birute’s Hill - is a tall sand-dune which originally boasted a pagan temple to Thunder god Perkunas that was guarded by Vestal Virgins. Having heard about Birute, Kestutis, the Grand Duke of Lithuania, rode over on his horse to take her for his wife. It is written in the Chronicles of Lithuania that Birute "did not want to agree, and answered that she had promised the gods to guard her virginity as long as she lived. Kestutis took her by force from that place. Now the hill is topped with a chapel and the statue of Birute rests at the foot of the hill. The second and most interested tourist site is the Amber Museum, which has tens of thousands of different amber pieces on display, including some bigger than you can imagine. These days, Palanga is also the place to go for active youngsters in search of bars and nightclubs, of which the town now has plenty.
Palanga has its own small airport with the international flights from Germany, Sweden, Denmark and Russia. One can also use Vilnius international airport - still the most convenient way to enter Lithuania. More detailed information about Lithuania and Palanga can be found in the websites:
