Program:
Since prehistoric times people have lived on this elongated sand dune peninsula which separates the Curonian Lagoon from the Baltic Sea. Nearly 100 kilometres long and 0.4-4 kilometres wide, it has long been threatened by the natural forces of wind and waves. Its survival to the present day has been made possible only as a result of ceaseless human efforts to combat the erosion of the Spit. Your tour will begin with a visit to one of the oldest settlements on the Spit, the charming seaside resort of Juodkrante with its Amber Bay and many pleasing stone sculptures. After taking in the sights of Juodkrante, you’ll travel on to the Grey Dunes, a fascinating area of wind-blown dunes and grassy, vegetation-covered sand hills where you’ll be able to walk and be impressed by the sheer scale of the landscape. After lunch in Nida, you’ll visit some of the highest sand dunes in Europe including the famous 52 metre high Parnidis Dune. If you’re a lover of literature you’ll enjoy the next stop at the Thomas Mann Memorial Museum, the house which the famous German author of Death in Venice and Dr Faustus had constructed in the town which he visited in 1930 and 1931. Next up on the tour is the Mizgiriai Amber Gallery where you’ll learn all about amber, its uses and its place in Lithuanian culture and history. Free time. After coming back by bus to Klaipėda we will make a stop for a photo in the heart of Old Town Theatre Square near "Ann from Tharaw" sculpture.
