There are many cities at the Baltic Sea that you will find appealing. Choose between vibrant metropolis, romantic cities and intimate villages to spend your time in. Take a break at the beach of small cities, while watching the sunset, take a walk down the avenues, away from traffic – all that while enjoying the breeze.
In towns where art has blossomed for centuries, handicraft and trade have their own way, architecture astonishes – discover the unique past. Every step you make will take you to ancient buildings, beautiful avenues, stylish interiors and works left by master artists long gone. An exemplary town in Germany is Rostock*, which is shaped by a Hanseatic tradition, lovely beaches, the oldest university of Northern Europe and magnificent ships.
Charming amber, magical port life, fascinating churches and monasteries, combine both traditional and modern elements. It is no surprise that most of the seaside resorts make fashionable and inspirational places. Klaipeda, fondly described as "an eccentric cocktail mixed from its miscellaneous past personalities", is the maritime gateway of Lithuania* linked by ferry lines with Germany and Sweden. It hosts the largest maritime museum with marine mammal park in the Baltic States. In 2012, the Lonely Planet travel guide listed Klaipėda among the "10 hidden gems of Europe".See also:
