Curonian Spit National Park, Klaipeda

4.7
#1 of 16 in Wildlife in Lithuania
Covered with sand dunes, thick forests, and expansive beaches, Curonian Spit 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 National Park represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Klaipeda attractions planner to plot your vacation.

  • We spent whole day in this wonderful place. It has great diversity of nature. Lovely place to spend time with family and friends. Wander around and do great sightseeing.one star went down because of lack of the signs. Basically you have to have a map with you and check at every parking lot what is around.
  • The best place in Lithuania! Incredible nature, peaceful and it looks like time just stopps there. Prices are pretty high, but it's worth!
  • It's a really beautiful place .. Surely very windy though but you get to see the wildness of the sea ... The chills ... The winds and a serene view over there and the road leading to it is kinda one that gives you a feeling as if a king is walking up to his throne!
  • Unusual spot for nature loving tourists. Pines woods and sand dunes worth a visit! Sandy beach, wind and sun are all you need for vacation! You might want to drive out of town for less a populated beach.
  • Beautiful forest and dunes. Lovely long white sand beaches. Interesting wooden houses. We all enjoyed the hill of witches.
