Curonian Spit, Kaliningrad
(4.8/5 based on 1,700+ 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.

  • To visit the sights to be found one day and bring: warm clothing, comfortable shoes flats, thermos, snacks, camera, video camera and a good mood. Entry into paid-r 150 per person + r. 150 machines. From an interesting (in my opinion) is the height of the EFA, the height of Muller, the dancing forest. In the PIC. Rybachy, you can build up a delicious smoked fish! Delicious meals can be enjoyed on the territory of the hotel complex Al'trimo. Account for two will be around 2500 p

  • The most amazing place in the whole wide world. Beautiful, interesting, and informative. Wild animals, Fox, wild boars go directly to people begging food. Saw a moose. The field hospital is a division of the world's first ornithological stations, based in Rossittene, be sure to visit it. Very interesting excursion for both adults and children. In the village of rybachem you can enjoy smoked fish, and strong present Lithuanian beer. Well, how would you not tired necessarily linger, and look at the sunset.
