Museums & Galleries
A flight of steps leads up from the promenade to German writer Thomas Mann’s former Baltic villa, which is now a museum...
Black-and-white photographs of Nida in its more brutal spear-fishing, crow-biting days fill the thoughtfully laid-out displays in this history museum, where Nida’s tale from the Stone Age to 1939 is told...
