Palanga The Essential
Interesting
Fishermen, merchants and amber prospectors (the town coat of arms includes an amber necklace) have populated Palanga down the centuries. Since the 19C its fine beach has drawn holidaymakers in droves, swelling the local population (20 000 inhabitants). Despite its popularity and relentless holiday atmosphere in summer, the omnipresent backdrop of pine trees means that it retains a wild character. The little River Raze divides it into two; to the south lies wooded parkland with villas.
