Neringa

Trip Planner Europe  /  Lithuania  /  Klaipeda County  /  Neringa
Neringa or Neringa Municipality is a municipality of Klaipėda County in westernmost Lithuania, comprising several villages in the Curonian Spit. In terms of population, it is the smallest municipality of the county.NameThe name of the city is relatively new and is not found in old scriptures in this form. The name is derived from a German word Neringe, Nerunge, Nehrung which itself is a derivative of a curonian word nerija meaning a long peninsular spit.Until the 2000 Lithuanian municipality reform, it was known as Neringa City, although there was never a true "city" there. It was made a city only because within the Soviet administrative system it was not possible to carve such small districts, but it was possible to grant rights to a city that it would only be responsible to the state itself rather than districts.GeographyNeringa is located south of Klaipėda, separated from the mainland Lithuania by Curonian Lagoon. While there is no bridge, it is still accessible from the mainland by ferry only.The villages in Neringa municipality comprise: the self-governing resort town (kurortas) of Nida, seat of the local administrationthe eldership (seniūnija) of Juodkrantėthe eldership of Preila and Pervalka. They are tourist resorts and by then it was popular to grant more self-government to resorts. The municipality is the only one in Lithuania which is not called after a town or city. The name Neringa was created at Soviet time for the new city municipality.
