Klaipeda: Soviet Nuclear Weapon Site
In one of the most beautiful places in the Plokstine Forest, in Zemaitija National Park, the Soviet Nuclear Weapons’ Site is located.  It was built under great secrecy in 1960. The site became operational in 1963. There were 4 silos, which housed surface-to-surface missiles.

On the way back from this apocalyptic site, and as a complete contrast, you will see the most beautiful sites of the national park: crystal – the clear waters of the Plateliai Lake and three spectacular islands.

Bornholm, Nature Walk
In the center of Bornholm you will find one of the largest forest areas in Denmark – Almindingen. Centuries of extensive deforestation had all but turned the entire island into a grassy heath. But from 1800 on trees were planted and the forest re-grown, and today it covers about 23 square miles, making it the third-largest forest area in Denmark. Almindingen also has rich plant and birdlife. Travel by coach from the pier to Rytterknaegten in Almindingen – the highest point on Bornholm (531 feet above sea level). The coach will park close to the viewing tower “Kongemindet” – a 72-foot high observation tower built in honor of King Frederik VII who visited here in 1851. You may climb the tower to enjoy great views of most of the island. Walk from Rytterknaegten to Ekkodalen (app. 90 minutes) through a fascinating landscape. Ekkodalen (Echo Valley) is the biggest and longest rift valley in Denmark, with an average width of 200 feet and a total length of 7.5 miles. The valley has many nature trails. Hear the amazing echoes, listen for the nightingale and other members of the plentiful bird population and enjoy the lush and dramatic scenery. From Ekkodalen, you will take a short coach ride to one of the famous round churches of Bornholm -  these unique churches are  named for their completely circular structures and were a popular type of construction in the 11th and 12th centuries when churches not only served as places of worship, but as defensive structures in uncertain times. After this visit, return by bus to the pier.
