Klaipeda ( pronounced clay-peh-da) is only the third largest city in Lithunania, but it is important as a commercial port because it is ice free unlike many other Baltic ports.   It has had a chequered history from the Teutonic knights up to very recent times with subjugation by Sweden, Prussia, Germany and Russia but finally gaining independance in 1990.   Since then it has been steadily improving its tourist trade.

The capital of Lithuania is Vilnius.
