Excursion "Ant žaliųjų šanselių"

Excursion "Ant žaliųjų šanselių"

An excursion " Ant žaliųjų šanselių " tells you about an interesting and rich part of the events and historical heritage of New Town. We will remember, how the German city of Memel turned into Lithuanian Klaipėda, where the "bonikė" or the tram was driving, where the "šūlmistrai" were being taught, and how the first Lithuanian gymnasium came to be in existence, what was a bauhaus, historicism and neogothic, where were the glamourous dance evenings, what was promoted by Kipras Petrauskas, who carried the sun of Stalin, and whoever ran from it ... The tiny part of the city is so rich with history, that an hour and a half will pass by like a few minutes. Route: railway station, S. Nėries street, S. Daukanto street, Šaulių street, Lietuvininkų square and Vilties street.
