TOUR DESCRIPTION
 

Klaipeda Shore Trip

This Klaipeda shore trip visits the resort town of Nida which sits on the sandy spit of land between the Kursiu Lagoon and the Baltic Sea. You also enjoy a driving tour of the port city of Klaipeda.

The Curonian Spit is a 60 mile long sandbank which stretches from the Sambian Peninsula in Russia to Klaipeda, Lithuania. The Spit is home to the highest sand dunes in Europe and in the year 2000 it became a UNESCO World Heritage Site. On one side of the dunes is the Baltic Sea and on the other is the Kursiu Lagoon.

To fully appreciate the journey you will start by taking a ferry from Klaipeda to Smiltyne. From here you meet your vehicle and drive to the city of Neringa and the resort of Nida, which is near the Russian border. During the journey you will see lagoons, the famous sand dunes and several small fishing villages.

In Nida you have the chance to see a typical cottage as you visit the Summer Cottage of Thomas Mann. Thomas Mann was a German novelist and essayist who won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1929 for his epic Buddenbrooks. He is also well known for his novel Death in Venice. Next you enjoy some free time to walk on the beautiful beach embankments and sand dunes.

Following your visit to Nida you drive back to Klaipeda where you enjoy a driving tour. Klaipeda in general is a large industrial port city. For many centuries the city was ruled by German speaking authorities. During WWII the city was used as a German submarine port and ultimately the city was almost completely destroyed. Your tour focuses on an old German part of the town which has been restored to its former glory. After your tour in Klaipeda you return to the pier.
