In the Register of Cultural Property, architectural tendencies of Palanga in the 19th century and at the beginning of the 20th century are represented by the Tiškevičiai Palace with a park, ten villas, fourteen residential houses, two hotels (Kurhaus resort buildings in Nemirseta and Palanga), a pharmacy, complex of baths, ship rescue station, bus station. Naturally, the aforesaid composition of the heritage reflects just a part of urban development stages, whereas the today’s townscape was formed in the sixties-eighties of the 20th century. At that time, Palanga turned into a major resort of national importance, thereby differing significantly from the towns of similar size found in Lithuania and in the Soviet Union of those days and being comparable with the larger regional centres in terms of both the artistic value of modern architecture and the extent of investments. The architectural projects developed in the 2nd half of the 20th century and having turned into an integral part of the resort architecture image soon after, however, were realised in less than 50 years ago. This means that the abovementioned edifices could be classified as the objects of the immovable cultural heritage only after a few decades. Nevertheless, does inclusion into the Register of Cultural Property imply the only one way to preserve and represent appropriately architecture of the era? Isn’t it possible, by courtesy of systemic architectural research studies of that period, by public and professional discussions, to form an art collection the persons and companies being in charge of the exhibits whereof would foster and popularise the artistic values of resort architecture unanimously?
