Step back in time as you explore Klaipėda, learning about the history of the Soviet era and visiting the Soviet Second World War memorial. Pass through residential areas dominated by large apartment blocks built during Soviet times and dating as far back as Khrushchev. Visit an amber factory and museum to discover the importance of Baltic amber. See craftsmen at work turning rough pieces of natural amber into elegant pieces of jewellery through cutting, polishing and baking. At the Amber Antique Gallery in Klaipėda Old Town, taste amber tea and learn about the amber trading routes, before exploring the narrow, cobbled streets.
