Located at the mouth of the River Dane in Lithuania is the city of Klaipeda. It lies at the point where the river flows into the Baltic Sea and is the third largest city in Lithuania. Having at various points in its past been ruled by the Duchy of Prussia, the German Empire and the Soviet Socialist Republic, the city has a rich and varied past. This heritage makes the city an interesting place to visit with most attractions located in the city centre. Some of the city's older buildings have picturesque half-timbered construction, similar to that found in Germany, France, England, Denmark and southern Sweden.
The city's mainly ice-free port has an important role to play in Lithuania's transport network. It provides a connection to the country's land, sea and railway routes from east to west. The port caters for both passenger traffic and cargo, and has a number of stevedoring companies, ship repair and ship building yards. The port lies to the south west of the city and offers passenger ferry services to Kiel and Karlshamn.
The city of Kiel is located in the north of Germany and lies on the Baltic Sea coast, to the south east of the Jutland Peninsular. Situated around 90 km to the north of the city of Hamburg, Kiel is a major maritime hub in Germany and has been one of the traditional homes of the German Navy's Baltic Sea Fleet. The city is also a major centre of high tech shipbuilding and an important transport hub as a result of its location on the Kiel Fjord and the busiest waterway in the world, the Kiel Canal.
Visitors to Kiel will find a number of interesting museums that focus on topics such as zoological, geological, historical, fine art, industrial and the military. Notable is the Stadt- und Schifffahrtsmuseum Warleberger Hof (City and Maritime Museum), which belongs to the association museen am meer.
A number of passenger ferries to Sweden, Norway, Russia, and other countries operate from the city's harbour. Today, Kiel harbour is an important port of call for cruise ships touring the Baltic Sea.
