Impressive for its lenght it has in peace you can find here its best feature. Way less crowded than any other beach in the country, it is situed in a true naturalistic paradise, the peninsula of Neringa. Come here for peace and nature, seaside is just as nice as Baltic seaside can be.

Promedane of Nida

Reviewed By Ana L - Boliden, Sweden

A nice Promenade along the village. Take a look into the fishermen houses and the typical weather vanes, carved by the locals. Get back through one of the inner streets: you will see beautiful houses, with absolutely stunning Gardens!

Thomas Mann Museum

Reviewed By DeanMurphy2020 - Orlando, Florida

German novelist, social critic, and philanthropist Paul Thomas Mann (1875–1955) took home the 1929 Nobel Prize in Literature. His symbolic and ironic epic novels are noted for insight into the psychology of the artist and intellectuals. His brother was the radical writer Heinrich Mann, and three of his six children also became important German writers. He built a seaside retreat on the Curonian Spit, which is now the museum. When Hitler came to power in 1933, Mann and his family fled to Switzerland, as his wife was a Jew. They never again occupied the seaside cottage. When WWII exploded in 1939, he moved to the US, returning to Switzerland in 1952—three years before his death.
When Soviets occupied Lithuania and many other European countries after WWII, Mann’s cottage became property of the Russian government, which allowed artists and writers it approved of to occupy the cottage with a fabulous view. Only in 2004 was the cottage converted into a museum, but few objects of “the Mann” are here. If you’re a Mann follower and want to visit the museum, early mornings are best, as tour buses arrive later in the day. This building was constructed as a family cottage, and not intended to hold 40 people milling about. There’s precious little about Mann’s works and insight to his life, or how an oppressive regime tried to control his intellect. There is a timeline at the entrance, something that can be learned from the Internet. The most impressive thing I found was the phenomenal view of the Baltic Sea, the reason Mann had his family’s retreat built at this location.

Amber Gallery-Museum

Reviewed By Menahem K - Tel Aviv, Israel

Though the museum is called "Amber museum", one floor of the two hosts period furniture & paintings presumably characteristic of Polish/Lithuanian gentry life through 19th century. This can be skipped. The amber exhibition along with archeological findings on teh second floor is very interesting and calls for close attention.

Nida Cemetery

Reviewed By David L - Bergen, Norway

The cemetery can be a bit difficult to find, but if you take the first exit from the main road into Nida you will find it on your left before entering the village. And I think the sign is only in Lithuanian, so you may have to pay close attention. As for the graveyard itself - well, its a graveyard. If you are fascinated by such places, there is also a nice one in Preila.

Ethnographic Fishermen's Museum

Reviewed By Paul P - Adelaide, Australia

In Lithuania there a number of surprises that you encounter along the way. Nida is a neat little fishing village and, at the museum, you are given the opportunity to have a short guided explanation of a fisherman's cottage. However, what really appealed to me were the weather vanes carved by the menfolk during the long hours waiting for conditions to be conducive to going out to sea. The vanes are intricately carved, each being a work of art in its own right. They tell of the fisherman's home port and aspects of his lifestyle in the principal palette of white, black, blue and red. The fishermen also produced original fretwork designs for the eaves of their cottages.
