You will need transport to reach the Curonian Spit but it well worth the effort, there plenty of hiking trails and it is possible to swim in the Baltic Sea, an invigorating experience, it is not recommended to swim in the Curonian lagoon due to pollution. There is wildlife to be seen, we saw a wild boar and her young,... More

This place dazzles you. The billowing dunes that go on into the distance are amazing to watch. It is worth coming here twice (like I decided to do) to really appreciate the full area. There are lots of different paths to take along the whole Curonian Spit. And moreover there are very few tourists here. To get there from Kaliningrad... More

The Curonian spit separates the Baltic Sea from the Curonian lagoon. Hence on one coast you can be mercilessly blown by the wind, while on the other you can enjoy some warm sunbathing. The Nature is enchanting with trees on the dunes, high sand dunes, a sudden border of Europe splitting the spit in two, between Lithuania and a relic... More

Reading the review of those unimpressed I have to say the road along the spit itself reminds you of any other normal wood, however it's what behind those trees that's so interesting. What's important is to take a guide with you who would tell you everything about the spit, from the way it was formed through its forestation and show... More

The Curonian Spit in the the Kaliningrad Oblast is a great place to visit. To get there from Kaliningrad city you go to the central bus station (next to the South railroad station) and take bus # 593. There are 4 buses going there eveyday, and the price is 120-140 rubles (September 2013), to one of the last two stops... More

The split, a sand peninsula fingering its way into the Baltic close to Kaliningrad is a great short excursion. It has a surprisingly interesting history and, besides being one itself, has several natural wonders, towering sand dunes and a forest of "Dancing Trees," all of which can be reached and leisurely enjoyed at the end of gentle hikes. For us... More
