Klaipeda is a town in the southwestern corner of Lithuania. Originally founded by baltic tribes, the city and castle was build by German knights and called Memel. Memel was part of Prussia and heavy fights with Lithuanian lords took place. Besides invasions from Sweden and Russia the city was mainly part of the Prussian Kingdom and a prosperous harbour town. After Germany lost the World War I Lithuania gained independence (under partial French mandate) but Memel stayed under an autonomous German administration. After Germany lost World war II the Soviet Union annexed Lithuania and Memel was renamed Klaipeda. Since the independence in 1990 Klaipeda wants to come back as the Lithuanian harbour and a tourist destination for families.
What People Are Saying
Stefan from Amsterdam, Netherlands loves to see the hotels and prices on a map
I love to see the available hotels on the map. I move and zoom the map a lot. It's so easy to filter
out the hotels that are too far from my preferred location. I also like seeing the hotel prices at a
glance on the map markers.
This hotel booking tool has saved me both a lot of time and money.
Anna from St. Petersburg, Russia thinks the budget tools and prices are great
Thanks for a cool new way of booking hotels! On our family trips, we are used to filter the hotels
based on our budget. Now we can quickly see the hotels that offer the best deals and that are
conveniently located close by the most interesting sights.
The prices on TripSay are always great.
Juan from Barcelona, Spain recommends this site to travelers who know what they want
I found a hotel quickly using the advanced filters. Booking the hotel was easy and straight-forward.
I require a wi-fi, non-smoking room and location near the airport or main railway station. Finally
it's easy to find a hotel that suits me. I recommend this tool to other travelers as well.
