The northern 52 km long stretch of the Curonian Spit peninsula belongs to Lithuania, while the rest is part of the Kaliningrad Oblast, Russia. The Curonian Spit is home to the highest moving (drifting) sand dunes in Europe. Their average height is 35 meters, but some attain the height of 60 metres.

Next of course Cat went to the toilet and Ally helpfully went to queue at the tourist office for a map. When he finally reached the front of the queue he ...
