The Beach and Sculpture for Jurate. Jurate and Kastytis is one of the most famous and popular Lithuanian legends and tales. "A young fisherman named Kastytis was disturbing the peace as he was catching a lot of fish. Jūratė decided to punish him and restore the peace, but she fell in love with the handsome young fisherman. They spent some happy time in the castle, but Perkunas, the thunder-god, found out that the immortal goddess had fallen in love with a mortal man. He became furious and struck the amber castle. It exploded into millions of pieces. Then Jūratė was chained to either the ruins or a rock on the seafloor by Perkūnas." According to legend, that is why pieces of amber come ashore after a storm on the Baltic Sea.
