This space is filled with the spirit of the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century. The alley is decorated with two bronze sculptures: "Countess Antanina Sofija Loncka - Tiškevičienė" and "Count Feliksas Tiškevičius". The composition of the sculptures is connected by a metal strip embedded in the pavement, in which the motto of the Tiškevičiai family is engraved in Latin and Lithuanian: “Deligas quem diligas” and “Choose what you love”. Count Tiškevičiai Avenue is decorated with original retro-style lamps and pavement.
The alley radiates the spirit of the final decades of the 19th and the beggining of the 20th century. The alley is adorned by two bronze sculptures dedicated to its founders: Count Feliksas Tiškevičius and Countess Antanina Sofija Loncka - Tiškevičienė. The sculptures are connected by a metal strip embedded in the pavement on which you can find the motto of the Tiškevičiai family in Latin and in Lithuanian: “Delingas guem diligas” or “Choose what you love.” The Alley of Counts is also decorated with authentic retro-style street lamps and pavement.
Another decoration of the passage is the wooden gate at Kęstučio Street, restored according to its original blueprints dating back to 1901. Ever since the gate was first installed, has been the symbol of welcoming and hospitality for holidaymakers.
The Tiškevičiai Alley also hosts the first hotel of Palanga - the Kurhaus. In 1877 Count Feliksas Tiškevičius established a spacious restoraunt and a hotel, which instantly became a popular gathering place for holidaymakers. The hotel also contained a reading room, several game rooms including a billiard room, and a ballroom which held numerous concerts and performances. Needless to say, the Kurhaus became the heart of the emerging seaside resort.
