During this trip you will get to see a lot of the beautiful Lithuanian countryside. The route passes through villages and small provincial towns. This part of western Lithuania is famous for having the greatest number of white storks and their nests.
From Klaipėda you will travel towards a small town of Priekulė. Emanuel Kant’s great grandfather was born here.
