The Curonian Spit is a sandy peninsula traversing nearly 100 kilometers and is a short boat drive from the city of Klaipeda (Lithuania’s third-largest city). The area is famed for the largest undulating dunes in Europe and was formed nearly 5,000 years ago through sea currents. The Spit houses gorgeous amber beaches and distinctive landscapes. Nestled alongside the gulf are small villages including Nida, a municipality famous for its multitude of artworks and jewelry. The Curonian Lagoon also boasts wetlands, green meadows and nice public spots that are populated during the tourism season.
