Train waiting for kids in Basanavicius street.

Palanga is a seaside resort town in western Lithuania. Situated on the shore of the Baltic Sea it is the busiest Lithuanian summer resort with beautiful sand beaches (18 km long and in some places about 300 m wide), dunes and an unspoilt natural environment.

During the summer, hordes of tourists descend on Palanga, both for the beach and the seaside carnival centered on J. Basanavičius Street, which is a pedestrian thoroughfare during the summer months. There are dozens of restaurants, bars, rides, sideshows, and other entertainment, most featuring bright lights, loud music, and thousands of people on the weekends.
There is one of the oldest still working drugstores in Lithuania, established in the mid-19th century. The city is home to a regional radio station, FM Palanga.
