Nida Iconography

  • Save

Ancient baltic legends say, that during a huge storm, which lasted few years, Giantess Neringa poured the sand into a pile
until it made a solid peninsula, in order to protect the shore people from wild sea and create a safe lagoon for fishermen. Thats how a 98 km long curonian spit was created. The part that belongs to Lithuania was named after giantess’s name - Neringa.
Now the shores of this peninsula are rinsed by water from the both sides. At the heart of this spit lays the capital Nida town.
