Object address: Sportininkų str. 46, Klaipeda, Lithuania

Municipality: Klaipėda

In 1867, the construction of the plantation fort was started in order to fortify the entrance to Klaipėda Port. The construction was completed in 1872. However, less than twenty years later the fort lost its significance because of significant progress in artillery. The building was blasted away in 1888. The city stadium currently operates in the territory. The embankment surrounding this stadium is the only surviving part of the plantation fort.
The object is marked with a military heritage symbol.
