What to see & do in Klaipeda in Lithuania

What to see & do in Klaipeda in Lithuania

Last year I was cruising around the Baltic region in Northern Europe and it was lovely as we went to ports I had never stepped foot on. I love new ports and countries to explore!

Klaipeda in Lithuania was one of these. Klaipeda is in the Baltic region of Northern Europe.

Lithuania was a part of the Soviet Union until 1993. It became part of the European Union in 2004.

The town was very interesting and I went on a walking tour of the city. It is beautiful and a lovely place explore.

The day we were there of course it rained! This was the story of my life last summer. I was so fed up of wearing a rain jacket and using my umbrella!

The tour made up for the rain as the stories about this quaint city were great.  The one I remember, as it meant to bring good luck!

There was a small mouse statue with very big ears and if you whisper to it your wish will come true! So, I will let you know when that happens!

There were lots of Amber shops, due to being in the Baltic region and this is where it is from.

After walking around the city we went for a wine and cheese tasting at the Cheese DZIUGAS House. The set up was really nice and cosy inside and there was a guide talking us through the cheese and wine.

The cheese was like parmesan but their version called Dziugas, very nice and a lot cheaper than Italian parmesan!

We tried different ages of cheese and I love cheese! This is a great attraction to visit if you do you too.

The wine was a little strange as it was made from raspberries for the red and quince for the white, not my personal taste, give me wine made of grapes any day!

My packing tips for Klaipeda are to bring comfortable walking shoes as there are cobbled streets in the town centre and wear a rain jacket, wear layers and bring an umbrella.

  1. Stop! I’m salivating … I’d SO be on that Dziugas House tour if I was there. But I’m with you on the fruit wine as well – I’ve tasted a few, and they’re very ‘nice’ but to me they’re more of a novelty than the real thing. So if I were whispering in that mouse’s ear, I’d be wishing for some of the REAL wine 😀

  2. I’ve never heard of this place before- always love blogs that bring me to under the radar destinations like this. I love cheese (and wine and food tours) too so I’m very interested in this local one- never heard of it before.

  3. My husband and I spent two weeks in the Baltics a few years ago and had the best time. Sadly we only spent 1 night in Lithuania, in Kaunas. We definitely want to go back and will give Klaipeda a visit! Sounds like a super spot.

  4. I’m a very big fan of cheese and wine, so this would definitely pique my interest! I’ve been hearing a lot of wonderful things about the Baltic regions recently, so will add Klaipeda in Lithuania to my list. The town looks quite charming, and I love the pastel colored buildings and charming street sculptures!

      1. I want to go back and spend a couple weeks in Lithuania. Not sure if I want to do a tour, or just drive myself, which would be doable as it’s about the size of South Carolina-I live in Indiana. Biggest disadvantage-I don’t know the language. Which would be a major drawback if I wanted to do some genealogical research and maybe meet some relatives, if possible. Guess I could hire someone at a library or genealogy center to help with that. Do they have a central genealogical data bank? Is it intact after wars and Soviet rule? My ancestors came over here around 1900!
