  • Places to visit in Klaipeda

Klapeda with a population of about 200,000 is the third largest city and the only port in Lithuania. Klaipėda’s economy benefits greatly from transit cargo transported from different countries through the seaport of Klaipeda. The city is the cultural and intellectual centre of West Lithuania and very proud of its University.


Klaipėda was founded more than 750 years ago. On the 29 July 1252 the treaty between the Curonian bishop and the local governor of the Livonian Order was signed and the fortress of Klaipeda was built. The German name for the city was Memel, which is the German name for the Nemunas River. The marshland around the mouth of the river, gave the city its  present name Klaipėda, which means “klaipė pėdas“ – feet sinking in the marsh. More information here.
