Old Baltic legends say it was the giantess Neringa who created Curonian Spit, and her masterpiece is surely Nida. Its hazy pine forests clasp Parnidis Dune, the largest on the peninsula. Boardwalks snake up to the height of the dune, a huge crest of wind-caressed sand that offers golden views into Russian Kaliningrad. Down in Nida village, brightly painted wooden houses and puffing fish smokeries work their magic on visitors.
