    Nida- Harbour lighthouse
    2 more images

    Favorite thing: Nida has got a relatively big harbour which is divided into two sections.

    Fishing and other commercial boats can be found in the northern part, whereas yachts and pleasure boats lie at anchor in the southern part.

    The entrance to the yacht harbour is flanked by two lighthouses. A green white one on the right and a red white one on the left.

    Weathervanes

    Nida weathervane
    1 more image

    Favorite thing: The iconic weathervanes were introduced to the Curonian Spit in 1844 by the fishing autorities. They were attached to the mast tops of the local fishing boats to identify them in the assigned fishing areas. It was also possible to learn from them about the owner's family and his wealth.

    Later the weathervanes became more colourful and were also used as decorations on local houses.
    The weathervanes can be seen all over Nida and are nowadays also a popular souvenir for tourists.

    Flora and fauna

    Favorite thing: Appart from the flowers, there are also mushrooms and berries growing in the forrests. People like wandering around and collecting with buckets. There are also wild boars to be encountered but I was both times on the bus, so I couldn't take a picture. But please don't feed them!

    UNESCO World Heritage

    Favorite thing: I actually wonder what took them so long to decide about this issue! I didn't actually know about this until I saw this monument in Nida in August 05. I definitely think this is a must see, but lots of people don't bother coming here when they visit Lithuania as they think it's too complicated to get there etc. But on the other hand if everyone would then it would be too crowded.

    view on the lagoon from the top of the dune

    by guiiillaume Written Apr 1, 2005

    Favorite thing: ah.. this photo is just terrible compare to the reality.. colours were so beautiful.. there was some snow on the ice, and this so strange colour that is a mix of snow and sand..
    i stayed here a long moment, just to look at that, and there was no noise of civilisation.. only wind.
    it's a good place to find peace and find a long and natural smile...

    Probably the best resort in Baltic States

    by Aig Written Mar 28, 2005

    Favorite thing: Unique geografic location on Kurian spit. Located in protected national park. Rent a bycicle and take a ride, take a walk on some of the thematic paths, or just walk by the sea in the sunset.

    Take a boat trip around the bay.

    Two Flowers in the Dunes

    by Grazina Updated Oct 8, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Grazina & Irma relaxing and try to get a tan.

    Favorite thing: Just the site where the dunes are...it's very relaxing as you can see here with Grazina & Irma kicking back and soaking in the Indian summer heat...

    Fondest memory: The sand...it very refreshing to take your shoe off and run your big, hairy, chizzie toes in the soft white sand...you could even just sleep here all day if you wanted to.

    In the distance there is a LIGHTHOUSE (Jezus)

    by Grazina Updated Oct 8, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    What a beautiful view.

    Favorite thing: The Amber shop, along with the movie house for the Artists on the Island that are students and studing to be of a great name to their work. The lighthouse is what I liked, and I will never forget it...it's the first time I have every seen one in my whole entire life.

    Fondest memory: Nida was fist mentioned in written sources in 1385 as the Crusaders maved throught the spit on their way to plunder and baptize the Lithuanian lowlanders (at this time the Lithuania was still pagan state amidst Christian world). The lighthouse (23m) at Urbas Hill (with height of 52 m. same as height of Great Dune near Nida) was built at 1874 and was destroyed by the Nazis. Their always destroying something beautiful these Nazis.
