It held a Slavic Stonehenge with a polycephalic god figure in the center - which was destroyed in the 12th (or perhaps 11th) centuries (attested to by three different primary sources from that period.

"Klaipeda in the Baltic states"
This curious phrase appears In the section on ships. Obviously, Klaipeda is in one of the Baltic states, namely Lithuania, not all three of them as the phrase suggests. Of course the phrase isn't actually incorrect, but it's like saying "Porto in the Iberian peninsula" (rather than Portugal) or "Esbjerg in Scandinavia" (rather than Denmark), or for that matter "Klaipeda in Europe". No-one would normally write like this in English. It looks like the writer couldn't be bothered to look up which country it is!184.108.40.206 (talk) 15:20, 13 October 2016 (UTC)

The correct English transliteration is "Baltiysk" (see the article on that town). This and the previous item make clear that the article was submitted by a non-native user of English without getting it checked first.220.127.116.11 (talk) 15:20, 13 October 2016 (UTC)
