... strait, across which is the port city of Klaipėda on the mainland of Lithuania. 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. Between 10 and 20 million birds fly over the Spit during spring and fall migrations, and ...

We meandered along, stopping first to take some pictures at the beach in Nida and then we didn't stop until the ...

... we were not the only ones to do this! Our bar had a really great atmosphere during the football and everyone cheered and held their breaths for both sides.
