Not only rare birds flock to the Curonian Spit, this 98-kilometer strip is surrounded by continuously winded sand, creating a special landscape. Juodkrante has a viewing site on the Mount of Avino, which opens up one of the most beautiful Curonian Spit panoramas. It is...More

Fascinating birds, and in the Nehrung it seems they have grown rather used to people. Ironically, in my country we eat these birds while eels are protected. In Lithuania, it seems things are the other way around. Here they protect the cormorants and eat the...More

Quite an experience. The scenery is really something different and the watching of the birds is somehow addictive.
