Botanical Park information
Lush greenery and swans gliding on still lakes make Palanga's Botanical Park a haven of peace after the frenetic-paced beach and town centre. The 1-sq-km park includes a rose garden, 18km of footpaths and Birutė Hill (Birutēs kalnas), once a pagan shrine. A 19th-century chapel tops the hill. But the highlight of the park area is the Amber Museum which showcases 20,000-odd examples of Baltic gold.
