There are so many things to see that I do not know where to start... Dunes, beaches, black cormorans nests, Hill of whitches with Unesco heritage and big sun clock on landscape view terrace next to Russian federation border... simply a must see place.

Spent the day cycling the spit, stopped and visited a couple of the dunes. Cycle paths easy to follow, flat, take water as there aren't many places to eat and drink.

you have to spend time here, you can catch the ferry two places in the city and the cruice takes 2-3 minutes. there are busses at the landing pier to take you to Nida or you can walk to the aquarium and dolphin show.

The Curonian Spit National Park is lovely but far too quiet on an April weekday. Being from a British tourist town (with a season all year round) coming to the Spit and finding nothing open (including the Tourist Information Centre) in April was a bit of surprise! But that's Lithuania for you!

Dolphins amazing, beach clean, nice walks. Ferry ride to the actual sea spit short. Horse and carts people looked a bit rough.

I have learned that you really can't go wrong visiting UNESCO World Heritage sites, and national parks. The Curonian Spit is both. I spent a full day there last week (mid April, off off season) and it was wonderful, i'd go back for a long holiday especially when it's warm enough to swim. Geographically unique (look at a map), a... More

My guidebook says the traditional route is Nida to Pervalka, but due to bus schedules I went the opposite way and started in Pervalka and walked to Nida. This is a very nice, calm, peaceful walk/ride.The trail is paved the entire way, so normal walking shoes are fine. After about 5km, I wished I was on a bike to go... More

The unique landscape with a small road along a divided landscape between dunes belonging to the biggest of the world is interesting as well from the viewpoint of wildlife and the spectacular views but also by its history. Different German roots are leading to the house of the writer Thomas Mann as well as to memories of the end of... More

Miles and miles of tree lined pines. Beautiful views of massive sand dunes in the distance and ships by the dozen on the horizon. Beautiful beaches with changing cubicles. Clear water for swimming, and unspoilt scenery for as far as the eye can see.

Curonian Spit is a beautiful and unique piece of nature. It has everything, forests, dunes, beaches and the sea. We visited in February and it was not very busy, I can't say if it is crowded in the summer season. When you drive from Kaliningrad, you enter the split from Zelenogradsk (Зеленогра́дск​) and will see a barrier with a small... More
