This is a really nice and calm place in Palanga, with the Amber museum. There's an extensive rose garden to go through as well

Lovely grotto located in Birute's Park. It shows when the virgin Mary appeared to St. Bernadine. It is a nice place to go for meditation and prayer.

We loved walking to the hill and finding lurd at the bottom and a small chappel at the top. The view to the sea from the top of the hill was also nice but almost hidden by the tree tops :(
