EBBC 2020 Palanga
First time in the Baltic States!
Brass Band music in Palanga Resort is cherished for more than a century and dates back to the aristocratic Counts Tiškevičiai times.
In order to ensure the continuity and quality of its development, each year local and international music events, gathering professional and top amateur orchestras and ensembles, conductors and composers from Lithuania and Europe are organized.
It was just a matter of time for Palanga to become noticed by the most devoted brass music lovers in all Europe.
So take a deep breath, relax and prepare yourself for a windy trip to Lithuania’s busiest summer resort.
Get wet in the impressive Baltic sea waves, get lost in mysterious parks, get inspired by music, which spreads from church towers to archaic Birutė’s mountain, from white sandy seaside to park rotunda, where brass and wind music is heard all summer long.
Feel the wind on your cheeks and you’ll understand why Palanga was destined to become the new home of the European Brass Bands Championship in 2020.
Become a part of the history - welcome the EBBC to the Baltic States for the first time together with us!
Busiest summer resort
Palanga is a seaside resort with a split personality – peaceful pensioner paradise in winter, pounding party spot in summer and insanely beautiful in between. Tourists from all over Lithuania and abroad come for its idyllic 18 km sandy beach backed by sand dunes and scented pines.
It is definitely the most universal resort in Lithuania where anyone can find a suitable way to have rest and fun.
Contemporary Palanga functions as a year-round health resort but is celebrated more for what happens there during the short summer season between June and September when the population explodes and the party never ends.
There is a carnival centered on Jonas Basanavičius Street, which is a pedestrian only thoroughfare during the high season, with dozens of restaurants, bars, rides, and other forms of entertainment. Sounds of music, laughter and lively clattering fills the atmosphere of the street which, in fact, ends in a beautiful pier opening a fantastic skyline. Each sunny evening many romantics come there to watch the spectacular sunset.
Palanga also offers intriguing cultural diversions for those looking for something a little more highbrow than gulping down litres of lager and devouring platefuls of cepelinai.
The beautiful Amber Museum, established in the Counts Tiškevičiai palace, is open to the public, as well as the museum's extensive Birutė‘s park.
For those who like an active rest water cycles, bicycles, horses, tennis courts, pools, bath complexes and other activities are available.
