Situated on the coast of the Baltic Sea, Klaipeda is a diverse city and the third-largest city in Lithuania. Klaipeda is the country’s only port and the hub of Klaipeda County. Railways connect Klaipeda’s port with the most important industrial regions of the Eastern hinterland, while established shipping lines provide links to the major ports of Europe. Sustainable development is one of the city’s top priorities, and this is evidenced by its efforts to develop a sustainable transportation system. As part of this, Klaipeda intensively promotes public transportation and environmentally friendly modes.
