Trelleborg is a town located in Skane County in the south of Sweden. The town's origins date back to when it was presented as a wedding present to the Swedish Prince Valdemar from the Danish Royal family in 1257. The Danes then took the town back which remained under Danish rule until 1658. Trelleborg became an industrial town at the end of the 19th century and this industrialisation has played an important part in the town's development. The town is popular with visitors from Sweden and Germany mainly because of the ferries to Rostock, Sassnitz and Lubeck-Travemunde In Germany. The ferries began sailing to the port in 1897 with the route to Travemunde established in 1962. The ferries carry both passengers on day trips, cars with vacationing families, and heavy trucks on their way through Europe. In 1917, Lenin arrived by ferry from Sassnitz to Trelleborg on his way from exile back to Russia to lead the Revolution.
The city and port of Klaipeda is Lithuania's only ort and therefore its history and prosperity is inextricably linked to the sea. Popular attractions in the city include the summer Sea Festival and the biennial Tall Ships regattas and the sea museum. The city also has a sea faculty at the local university and is also home to major stevedoring companies. Ever since its establishment by the Teutonic Knights (as Memelburg) in 1252 the city was distinct from the rest of Lithuania. It was ruled by Germans together with the rest of Lithuania Minor. Even its Lithuanian name “Klaipeda”, first mentioned in the 16th century, is believed to mean “Bread eater”.
Visitors to the city should note that it is quite a windy city that experiences many storms during the year which are characterised by sea breezes from April to September and gales in the autumn and winter. It is also not uncommon for snow to fall during the autumn and winter months and can, on occasions, paralyze the city but fortunately the port remains mainly frost free.
Klaipeda's ferry port is located in the south-west part of the city and offers passengers services to Kiel and Karlshamn.
