Klaipėda Port in 1945–1990

Eglė Truskauskienė (Vilnius Gediminas Technical University, Lithuania)


Soviet government in Lithuania was in power almost for a half of century. This system solved urban problems almost in the same way as the rest of the world. However, Soviet power some topics tried to interpret on its own way and some of them simply simulated. Urban design practice and theory were based on the foundation of ideology and socialist economics, so the urban fabric of Klaipėda city was stretched. Anyway, those 45 years were very important for the city. It was a time, when the urban development hasn’t stopped. It has left its own landmarks and gave some new impulses. Urban processes of this period, especially connected with port’s development, have made a great impact on the plan of city. And some of those processes are still working.
