Stretched along the lagoon shore, the slender village of Juodkrantė (ywad-kran-tey) – 'Black Shore', or Schwarzort to Germans – is one of the oldest settlements on Curonian Spit. Thought to date to the 15th century, shifting dunes forced the village to move from its original location. A fishing village for hundreds of years, it switched its focus to tourism in the 19th century but has retained a more sedate, faraway feel than Nida, 28km south, which attracts greater numbers of visitors.
