Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

Lovely, Nida, the largest settlement in the Curonian Spit, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, awaits your discovery. Drive from the pier to the ferry for a quick crossing of the Curonian Peninsula. Then, drive through this picturesque narrow stretch of land known as the Curonian Spit, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Arrive in the main settlement of Nida, and begin a guided walk into its center to see the fishermen's cottages, weathervanes and flat-bottom boats and enjoy free time to buy souvenirs or purchase refreshments. Peruse the Kazimieras Mizgiris Amber Gallery and learn about the 'gold of the Baltic,' viewing impressive pieces of amber jewelry and exhibits of amber treasures. Continue by motorcoach to the 52-meter-high Great Dune, for picture-perfect views over the dunes to the town and, on clear days, across to the Russian territory of Kaliningrad. Stop in the heart of Klaipeda's Old Town to photograph Theatre Square. You'll receive a sachet of amber pieces as a gift at the conclusion of the tour.
