Dear VT friends,
thank you for stopping and reading my letter to you ;-) I hope you are doing well and I wish you a lot of nice trips in 2011...
I live in Klaipeda. It is the third bigest city in Lithuania after capital Vilnius and the second bigest city Kaunas. Klaipeda is different from other places in Lithuania, because it it the Sea Port on Baltic Sea. There are also dunes of white sand, wild beaches. It takes few minutes by ferry to get to Curonian Spit- the highest dunes in Europe. Its beauty and value was recognized by UNESCO and included into the World Heritage List. And what I really love - it is Sea wind, what you will never feel in other cities of Lithuania ;-) Please, check official Klaipeda page www.klaipeda.lt , also Curonian Spit http://www.nerija.lt/en/foto/kopos.php
please, check my tips and ask me everything what you want to know about Klaipeda - I will be happy to help you.
Last weekend of July or first weekend of August we celebrate the Sea festival and 1 August birthday of Klaipeda city. This year we were lucky to host Eurobasket 2011 and the Tall Ship Races also visited Klaipeda. Let me share some pictures from my city and festival.
