about Palanga

Palanga is a small Lithuanian seaside resort on the shores of the Baltic Sea. It is a town, having rights of city.

Palanga history

It is hard to imagine Palanga without the Baltic Sea, because the Baltic Sea is our past, present and future. Since New Stone Age (IV - II c. b. J. C.) the sea influences mental and material culture, trading relations with other nations of people who lived here.

A lot of Lithuanian nation legends are related with sea. From generation to generation by the cradle mothers narrate for children about love of sea goddess Jurate for fisherman Kestutis, about the love between the daughter of fisherman Egle and grass - snake Zilvinas, about giants Naglis and Neringa, about romantic love of priestess Birute.

The origin of the name Palanga is related with the sea and legends too. People tell, that little houses of fishermen were situated so close to the sea - shore, that sea waves were laying, and the wind was covering with sand them up to windowsill (palange). Mostly the name of Palanga is deriving from archaic words of the Balts language such as palvë, palios, pala, palas (it means low, marshy area) or from rivers' names such as Palanga, Palangis, Alanga, Langa

Not only traders from oversea countries landed to the seashore of Palanga but conquerors too. The first mention of Palanga's name reminiscent the legendary story about landing to Palanga in 1161 of army of Danish king Valdemaras I. Only in 1253 Palanga was mentioned in chronicle of German Order. In the development of history here were a lot of conquerors. Vikings of Normans coveted these lands, and in XIII - XIV c a lot of time crusaders devastated it. Only after the Battle of Grunwald (in 1410) the peace contract of Meln, concluded in 1422, stopped an invasion of the Order to Lithuania and in accordance with the peace contract of Brest (in 1435-12-31) Palanga felt to Lithuania.
