Less distinct small paths in such areas are hardly runnable.
Holiday activities,nature,hiking etc.Neringa is one of the most beautiful resort towns on the Baltic sea. In the year 2000, the Curonian spit was included into UNESCO World Heritage list as an object of cultural landscape of outstanding value. The range of sand dunes with its rare flora, the seaside forest cherishing the hundred-year-old trees and hand-planted mountain pines, the white sand beaches, well developed infrastructure, typical for that land architecture and a pleasant smell of smoked fish, abundance of cultural and sport events these are the aspects which reveal the uniqueness of the region and make it unforgettable for everyone.
