Landmark
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.

  • I was in two places on the spit. This campsite dunes, and the Museum of the spit. The Museum is a dacha gene. SEKA. Region. The Party Of The COMMUNIST PARTY. Now it is a museum. Detailed description of life on the spit. She shared the sea and Bay. Fresh water from the sea. A miracle of nature. the protivopolozhshoj side there is access to the sea. It is very convenient. Now about the camp site links. A good place to relax. The camp site is situated in the forest between the sea and the Gulf. There are doiki to stay. The service is not high. But nature and silence all brighten up.

  • Expectations are not met. Were in the first days of April with friends. Super Weather. The company is excellent. And more ... Well, bright sand, well water to the horizon. And what? The southern coast of Ladoga, Onega Lakes, or Gulf-sand, water, dunes, pine ... Everything repeats itself. Probably all feel should be at least a week. Prices of amber clearly overstated. See prices from you. Do not hurry up with the purchase. The overall impression is good.

  • Just unimaginable! It is impossible to transfer all its beauty through pictures and videos! Beskonechnaya pustynya in Woods, on the sea shore! Very sorry that you can not walk directly on it, but views from lookouts unrealistic! On the other hand deserted coast of the Baltic Sea and white sand! While we were walking to all of these beauties on the magical pine forests saw real live deer, which was grazing in the Meadow! It's just an incredible natural place, especially if you get there when no one else will not.
