Curonian Spit / Kursiu Nerija National Park, Klaipeda

4.6
#1 of 54 in Parks in Lithuania
Covered with sand dunes, thick forests, and expansive beaches, Curonian Spit / Kursiu Nerija National Park is a World Heritage Site that ranks among Lithuania's most diverse and visited natural areas. Carving an extensive lagoon out of the Baltic Sea, the park represents a great deal of the country's coastline and adjoins midway with its counterpart national park in Russia. Visit the area and explore its shoreline, boasting a network of trails for hiking and biking. If you're tempted by the sea, visit one of the yacht clubs to go for a sailing adventure on the Curonian Lagoon. Among the wild expanses of windswept coast you'll also discover old fishing villages that were once the center of the region's now-departed German population. Today they house museums, artwork, and churches. A visit to Curonian Spit / Kursiu Nerija National Park represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Klaipeda attractions planner to plot your vacation.

  • We were in a cruise tour here in August and had booked a trip to the Curonian Spit. It was recommended to us as Pearl Lithuania. In fact, the scenery is very beautiful and you can wonderfully hiking, cycling etc. Our excursion in itself I didn't like but, because it was through driven everywhere. Zack the large dune by the city, quickly up and down in 20 min, afloat through the Hill of witches, etc. You should take with time to enjoy this beautiful scenery and nature. At the great Dune lot number of visitors is, of course, all want to photograph. That takes a fun nature.

Where to stay in Klaipeda

The seaside city of Klaipeda boasts many funky yet reasonably priced hotels. Most cluster in the city center, but others, farther out, may have the advantage of sea views. For a slightly less expensive option, choose one of the city's hostels; most place you right in the thick of things. While guesthouses here are somewhat less popular compared with other Lithuanian cities, they remain the least expensive lodging in town and can provide an authentic local experience. As with other Lithuanian towns, you can opt to stay in a tent or camper at a campsite just a bit outside of town. Campsites also offer hostel-style accommodations.
