Klaipeda is the only port city, the industrial, commercial and cultural center in the western part of Lithuania. It is not only the oldest city, but also a total one of the oldest cities on the eastern Baltic. A walk through the narrow, straight old town streets carrying the name of the resident there at the time guilds as bakers, shoemakers, fishermen, blacksmiths street can, still feel a touch of the medieval period. In the old town of Klaipeda are many restored half-timbered (fachwerk) houses from the 17th-19th Century example of the former Prussian architecture in the northeastern coastal area. Young, open, liberal, tolerant, ambitious, perhaps with a touch of extravagance-that is the city of Klaipeda. Theatre Square is the heart of Klaipeda city and a popular meeting place for locals and guests. In the middle of the theater square is a fountain with a sculpture of "Annie of Tharaw". The monument to the little girl in 1912, built by the Alfred Kune from Berlin, commemorating born in Klaipeda German poet and writer Simon Dach. Another attraction is the miracle mouse. They say that the little mouse has magical powers and can fulfill all wishes, you just have to whisper in this ear. Another sculpture is "The cat with the face of the gentleman."
