Wikipeda says about Klaipeda:

Klaipėda German: Memel) is a city in Lithuania situated at the mouth of the Curonian Lagoon where it flows into the Baltic Sea. As Lithuania’s only seaport, it has ferry terminal connections to Sweden and Germany. Some of its older buildings have picturesque half-timbered construction, similar to that found in Germany, France, England, Denmark and southern Sweden.”

Those houses are beautiful, aren’t they? However one doesn’t forget that housing conditions at that time weren’t very good. We often admire the beauty but forget how it was to live in those old buildings.
