Historical Background

The history of Palanga Bridge reminds us that the main purpose of the Bridge was an active ships dock. Well known noblemen Tiskeviciai created a sturdy and safe dock for coming ships in the XIX century. Goods were transported straight through the bridge and loaded to the waiting ships in the dock. Unfortunately, the Mother Nature disapproved that decision and the pier was flooded with sand. At these days Palanga Bridge is better known as a lovely place for an evening walk than the historical dock.
