“Klaipėda Carillon is the world class instrument the citizens and the city can be proud of.” – Kęstutis Kačinskas, carillonneur .
Klaipėda Carillon is a powerful voice of the city ringing each Friday and Saturday noon as well as during important days for the city. The bells create a special atmosphere in the city with their ringing.
The first carillon in the tower of the old Klaipėda post office was installed in 1987. After two decades the carillon was changed to a new set of 48 flat profile bells that weigh more than 5 000 kilograms and are famous for their sound quality and tone. The new bells were molten in the Royal Eijsbauts bell foundry in the Netherlands.
Klaipėda‘s carillonneurs Kęstutis Kačinskas and Stanislovas Žilevičius as well as guest carillonneurs from Lithuania and other countries play this unique instrument for the citizens and visitors to admire.
It is especially enjoyable to listen to the bells in a nearby Klaipėda Clock Museum yard.
Carillon address: Liepų St. 16, Klaipėda.
