Hitchhikingrs' Heaven

If you are a hitchhiker - read further. If you're not, so this place won't be interesting for you at all. Four roads, from Kaunas, Palanga, Silale and Klaipeda cross each other here, and I call this place a hitchhikers heaven because as many times as I have hitchhiked here I haven't waited for a car to stop for more than 10 minutes. In Lithuania there are two biggest main roads and these are ViaBaltica and Vilnius - Klaipeda.

If you are a hitchhiker – read further. If you’re not, so this place won’t be interesting for you at all. Four roads, from Kaunas, Palanga, Silale and Klaipeda cross each other here, and I call this place a hitchhikers heaven because as many times as I have hitchhiked here I haven’t waited for a car to stop for more than 10 minutes. In Lithuania there are two biggest main roads and these are ViaBaltica and Vilnius – Klaipeda.

This Klaipeda Ring is on the end of the road Vilnius – Klaipeda, which goes through Kaunas. By the way, Vilnius, Kaunas and Klaipeda are three biggest cities in Lithuania. OK, now how to find this Klaipeda Ring. First of all if you are going to the sea from Kaunas or Vilnius, all of the drivers will suggest you to get out right here, and if you are in Klaipeda and you want to go to Kaunas or Vilnius, then firstly take a bus and go to the very end of town. Get out on the last stop, and if you’re on the right place, so you will see a big smokestack right next to you (funny thing is that now only one half of it is painted and that is the side which you can see from the center of town). Then go to the gas station and use a free WC, because even if it a hitchhikers heaven, still everything can happen. When you will go out of the gas station walk about 500 meters by foot in to the opposite side of the town. As you can see in the photos, you will need to cross the bridge under which there is train railing. Best time to get to the Ring is about 5 p.m., because then majority of people finishes there jobs and are going to other towns.
