Welcome to Around Palanga
Brash Šventoji, 12km north, lacks the panache of Palanga but – with its inflatable fish that spit out kids, its dodgem cars and its merry-go-round of restaurant entertainers and fun-fair rides – it entertains. Nemirseta, a couple of kilometres south of Palanga, is known for its incredible sand dunes and for being the furthest east the Prussians ever got. Five buses daily run to Šventoji from Palanga, but to reach Nemirseta you’ll need your own transport.
About 10km east of Palanga, the town of Kretinga is connected to Palanga by frequent buses (€1.16, 15 minutes).
