Curonian Spit, Kaliningrad

(4.8/5 based on 1,800+ 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.

  • For the sake of this unique natural park people come from all over the world. Worth at least once in a lifetime to see it all with your own eyes. The walk gives pleasure, it is better to choose a private tour and spend the entire day in free mode, and not crowd "galopam Europe". You can and get some fresh air, enjoy the amazing beauty of the stay and dream, even swim in the Baltic Sea, buy fresh smoked fish. No one indifferent impressions-secured. Place for tourism.
