Nida on the Curonian Spit (Kursiu Nerija) was the 2nd stop on our trip through Lithuania in August 2006. It is situated in the proximity of the border to Russia, just in the middle of the 98 km long spit.
The main reason why most travelers come to Nida is its beautiful setting within various dramatic sand dunes, with the 52 m tall Parnidis Dune being the most famous of them. From the top of the dunes scenic views of the Curonian Lagoon and the Baltic Sea can be enjoyed.
The city itself is a mixture of a quiet fishing village and a busy tourist resort. Among the sights are many handsome fishermen's cottages, the Thomas Mann House, a Parish Church with adjacent cemetery and a few little museums.
"I walk in the sand and I can see the wind burying my footprints as I turn back. Sand is following me. Man, don't forget that call from the deep of sand."
--- Rev. D. F. Zudnochovius ---
- Pros:Impressive sand dunes and picturesque cottages.
