4.8/5 based on 1,600+ reviews on the web
For a chance to walk through the desert, swim in the sea, and cycle through the forest in a single day, head to Curonian Spit, a World Heritage Site. Formed thousands of years ago, this 98 km (60 mi) long sandspit separates a narrow lagoon from the Baltic Sea. Shared by Russia and Lithuania, the curving stretch of sand varies in width from a minimum of 400 m (1,300 ft) to almost 4 km (2.5 mi). Home to some of the most rapidly moving dunes in Europe, the spit combines sand ridges with wetlands, meadows, and tree groves. To explore the entire spit quickly and comfortably, drive the single paved road from Zelenogradsk in the south to Smiltyne in the north.

  • On the Curonian spit, we went with an excursion from agency Juno. Lucky with the weather was warm and sunny. First we stopped at the ornithological station (listen to the story of a receptionist ornithologist, fired a few birds registration with weighing and measurement of key evidence), then visited the dancing forest (turned out to be not so mysterious as it is touted in advertising), and then climbed the dune EFA, which offers wonderful views of the Baltic Sea and the Curonian Lagoon. White Sands fascinate. In General, the landscape reminded me of Okhotsk coast in good weather.
