The fortifications have survived as practically sole witnesses of the war. However, we may "make talk" the silent witness to the Second World War – the coastal artillery battery MEMEL-NORD...During the tour we’ll visit the secret coastal artillery battery MEMEL-NORD, you’ll hear the story of its origins, and learn about the German coastal defense fortifications in Klaipėda region...
