Curonian Spit National Park is founded in the 52-km-long territory belonging to Lithuania. The landscape of the Curonian Spit is a very distinctive one. It encompasses sand dunes scattered with unique, blossoming flowers and vegetation. Among the dunes are hundred year old pine trees and clusters of mountain pines planted.
You’ll see it at every corner of Neringa. It’s a local heritage. Back in the day all the boats were marked with a sign of the fishing village symbol on it, so that it could be raised high and be visible from a distance. As time went by, people began decorating their homes with small weathervanes. And now you’ll find it everywhere.
The ancient Kurėnas
For the inhabitants of the Curonian lagoon, the unique ship Kurėnas was one of the most important household attributes: they used it to fish, transport goods and animals, and used it as a means of transport. Kurėnas sailed not only in the lagoon, but also in the Baltic sea.
