Curonian Spit

Neringa (Curonian Spit): A breathtaking peninsula off the southern Lithuanian coast, some 350 km from Vilnius. This sword-shaped sliver of land runs for some 100 km parallel to the coast. One of its wonders is the feeling of complete isolation; you may find yourself on your own for miles, strolling through the endless chain of sand dunes. Neringa, sometimes called the Baltic Sahara, which was much loved by Nobel Laureate Thomas Mann, who wrote about "the fantastic world of traveling dunes, pine forests filled with moose and birch between the bay and the Baltic Sea." The prettiest town is on its southern end, Nida, which has the Thomas Mann house/museum. Further north, near Juodkrante, is Witches' Hill, which boasts hundreds of playful and grotesque wooden statues.

    Neringa is a great place. Juodkrante is my favourite. Thanks for the pictures.

    Thanks for the reviews. I will be travelling to Lithuania from Australia next week and will be staying in Nida. I am looking forward to it immensely. My mother was born in Kaunas so I hope to find where she used to live
