About Curonian Spit, Kaliningrad
Curonian spit is a unique sliver of land between the Baltic Sea and the Curonian Lagoon and is home to some spectacular sand dunes and stretches of empty beach. It runs for 98km (the border with Lithuania comes at about 50km) and its width varies from just 400m to almost 4km. In addition to sand dunes, this Unesco-protected area is covered by pine forests. Millions of migrating birds pass over the spit every year, making it a birdwatcher’s dream. Tourists can also visit one of the world’s first ornithological stations in Rybachiy.
