We will start our tour on a ferry, crossing the Curonian Lagoon until we reach the Curonian Spit itself. Being a 98-km long stretch of land, it mainly consists of sandy beaches which split European continent from the Baltic Sea. Locals adore Curonian sceneries because of romantic sceneries of pine woods, which are an important part of Baltic nature. The scientists believe that Curonian Spit has been formed around 6000 years ago because of the sand accumulation in waters near the coast. Years later, fishermen have built their settlements here and in the 21st century those have become some kind of SPA resorts.

The next stop of the tour is Juodkrante, where the Hill of Witches is located. There, you will be able to visit the wooden statues of local heroes, including Nida - the resort of serene beauty.
