Theatre Square

This cobblestoned square is in the heart of Klaipėda’s Old Town and is anchored by the neoclassical redbrick Drama Theatre building, which has presented plays since the mid-1930s. At the center of the square is a fountain with a statue of a barefoot girl, Taravos Anikė (Ann from Tharau); the monument pays tribute to a famous work by the 17th-century Prussian poet Simon Dach (1605–59). The square plays host to a number of concerts throughout the year and is a popular place for people-watching.
