The scenery and layout is just superb. Historical and scientific at the same time. The birds are friendly. The shop is great.

In the middle of the beautiful and well maintained Palanga Botanical Park you’ll find the Amber Museum in a castle like building. When I visited the exhibition it was moved into the basement because of restorations of the upper building, but it was still impressive with informative texts and magnifying glasses for to study the amber inclusions. It says that... More

Lithuania was a very different experience: a country with a unique language (close to Sanscrit in origin), a history of occupation by larger neighbours and independent only since 1990. We landed at Klaipeda, and the rainy weather broke just as we were leaving the ship. We took a bus trip to Palanga - a seaside resort, home to a huge... More

It's a small museum with amber exposition. If you want to know where do we have amber from and to see some nice pieces of amber or jewellery, you can go there. It will take not more than an hour. But park around is great for long walks.
