Klaipėda and Klaipėda county

172 km

Numerous bomb shelters were established in various locations in Klaipėda during the World War II, all designed for temporary protection if the city was bombarded. Most of them were designed as tunnels thus it started a rumour that there is a network of tunnels under the city that connects the castle mound to the current Sea Museum. Even though none of the existing shelters are officially open some of them are accessible for exploration. While on Klaipėda city route you will also visit the Klaipėda Castle and Bastion Complex, the castle mound, Neringa Fort, the Klaipėda Defence Ring and the bunkers and batteries that it contains as well as the mounds of Žardė, Kuncai and Purmaliai.

Klaipėda county route includes the mounds of Skomantai, Dovilai, Eketė, Gerduvėnai, Kalniškiai, Mockaičiai, Veiviržėnai, Vyskupiškiai and Žvaginiai together with Kukuliškiai battery. Each object tells a different story, some of which are quite terrifying. One of the stories, recorded before that start of the World War II, is about shepherds that discovered a cave in a hill and then lowered their slightest inside to look for a hidden treasure. The boy met an old man while wandering in the cave. The man treated the boy to a nice meal and showed his golden palace under the condition that the boy wouldn‘t tell anyone about it. Three days later the boy retuned home and after talking about what he had discovered he lost the ability to speak.
