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 glamorous 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.

A significant historical fact of the early 19th century Memel is the status of the temporary capital of Prussia.
For one year, the town was the residence of King Frederick III William III, his consort Louise, his family and court, and the government.
