“MEMEL IN THE 19th CENTURY”*
Let’s turn back the time and take a glance at the 19th century Memel through the prism of history.
A significant historic fact of the early 19th century Memel is the status of the temporary capital of Prussia. The town was the residence for one year of King Frederick William III, his consort Louise, his family and court, and the government.
The development of the city was halted by the Great Fire of 1854, which wrought havoc in the town. The fire destroyed the city featuring Baroque and Classicism style buildings and, following rebuilding, the city’s dominant architectural styles were Historicism and Art Nouveau.

RECREATIONAL AND SIGHTSEEING TOUR IN THE SEASIDE REGIONAL PARK “HISTORY OF THE BATTERY MEMEL-NORD”
The twentieth century was a period of change, struggles and changing circumstances for the people living in the territory of the present-day Lithuania. The Second World War made havoc to the map of nation building… For many of us the war is merely a hard-to-understand historical event. The concrete fortifications found in Klaipėda region give us an opportunity to at least partly get feeling of the moods of the war that raged long time ago. 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…
