Palanga Resort is apparently THE place to be in the short summer season in Lithuania, with its incredible pathways, restos and Amber shopping opportunities. After a pleasant stroll of about a kilometer, one reaches a cobbled intersection, dominated by a striking Fountain, featuring a mythical heroine with a serpent entwined about her body. If one takes a left at this point, the stroll, parallel to the sea-shore, through the green pine woods and Gardens is definitely worth the effort. It is so relaxing and the ozone from the adjacent Baltic quite bracing. Really a must-visit while in-country.

We spend holidays in Druskininkai for two years and one of the most beautiful things here is the playing Fountain. The most spectacular view in the evening is when it gets dark, because it plays and "dances" and shines! The daughter likes to dance near the Fountain while playing music and be sprayed with water if a stronger wind blows. A very romantic place.

How perfect castle it is!!! it is on an island in the middle of a lake. By passing over a bridge and reaching the red towers among greens cannot be expressed without seeing and feeling the nature. Boat trip is so nice and people are friendly. After getting off train, walking 4 or 5km among the trees and by the lake is awesome.

Impressive fortress with many thousands of metres of tunnels, used as a concentration camp in the Second World War. Many Jewish people were shot here as well as French.
There is an extremely impressive sculpture built as a commemoration to all those who died at the camp
The tickets are very good value, cost just over eight euros for the four of us, and there is an interesting museum to start off with. If you actually want to look at the fortress you have to hire a guide but again this was included in the price for us and he was very good, good English and was informative.

An amazing, jaw-dropping memorial to the fallen and missing patriots of Lithuania's history of struggle against outside oppression. Not a graveyard. Crosses are left to honor war death, people who disappeared under the Soviets, victims of the Nazis, etc.
No one knows the exact count of crosses, but numbers in the hundreds of thousands.
Soviets bulldozed the hill 3 separate times. A few days later, the crosses started to reappear as a silent symbol of dissent.
Pope John Paul II was here in 1993, and erected a large marble cross.
Out of the way, but definitely worth visiting.
WOW!!! Just WOW!!!!

It's fascinating. It's fun. It's sure to be surprising. Basically that's all you need to know about our fabulous museum.
A glorious mixture of new and old optical illusions, well displayed and with a high proportion of interactive elements. Children should love it and parents will find themselves jostling to have a go themselves. The only downside is that I imagine the museum will be very busy and thus crowded in the high season.

Visited this place in off season. No queues and not busy.
It is great to learn about history of amber in Baltics. They have many impresdive displays of amber. Many of which you can look at through magnifying glass provided.
There is amber shop upstairs and there is also information point and souvenires shop downstairs selling cheap fridge magnets etc.
All the staff members were nice except one who looked very angry and moody asking to check our tickets.
Free audio guides are provided if you ask.
There is a coffee machine and a cloakroom downstairs where you can leave your coats for free.
Also the surroundings, Gardens and a park is beautiful to explore.

Open Air Museum of Lithuania is a unique and one of the largest (195 ha) open-air ethnographic museums in Europe. It has the biggest quantity of exhibits (90820 exhibits). The museum presents the mode of life, works, and traditions of peasants and townspeople of all Lithuanian ethnographic areas: Dzūkija, Aukštaitija, Suvalkija, Žemaitija and Lithuania Minor. It was established in 1966, in Rumšiškės on a picturesque coast of Kaunas Lagoon. There are fragments of the villages, authentic farms, century-old buildings with flower Gardens, orchards and vegetable Gardens, with crosses and wooden roofed poles, technical facilities - mills, forges, a fulling-mill and oil-mill lining along 7 km circular route, meandering between Forests, meadows and hills. In the centre of the museum there is a fragment of a township with its typical buildings, where pots are shaped, amber and wood works are done and weaving process of linen is presented. The painful past of Lithuanian history is reminded in the sector of Deportation and Resistance. The guided tours, educational programs, calendar feasts, folk group Concerts are being organized in the museum, horseback riding club.
What a large park for this unique collection of Lithuanian houses and buildings from all areas of the country it must have been quite an undertaking to transport and rebuild them We have never seen anything like it on this scale.You will need more than a couple of hours to walk round so leave yourself plenty of time
