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 German city of Lubeck is well known for its many Gothic buildings and for its tasty marzipan. Perhaps the most popular tourist attraction in the city is the 15th century Holstentor gateway, which has a truly fairytale appearance with its two cylindrical towers. A charming medieval city lies behind this where visitors will find many other historic buildings which has resulted in the city being declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in the 1980's. In fact, most of the city's most popular attractions are to be found in the Old Town area, known as Altstadt.
Nearby, the city's large ferry port lies on the shores of the Baltic Sea, within the suburb of Travemunde, where you will also find several pleasant sandy beaches and have a true feel of seaside tourism. Around Lubeck and its many public squares you will find a number of historical attractions and notable landmarks. Of particular interest is the 13th century Town Hall (Rathaus), the beautiful 12th century Dom (Lubeck Cathedral), the beautiful palatial architecture of Rantzau Castle (Schloss Rantzau), and the Heiligen Geist Hospital, the oldest hospital in Germany, which dates back to 1227.
