Virtual Tour: http://explorationjunkie.com/travel-video-nida-curonian-spit-lithuania/ Follow me as I explore the colorful village of Nida, Lithuania and above all the majestic sand dunes of the Curonian Spit. The itinerary I am following is a loop starting and ending in Nida, first going up the dune to the top and the viewpoint. Then, I follow the road to the campground and the immense beach on the Baltic sea. After walking to the border with Kaliningrad (Russia), I walk back to the sand dunes to explore them more extensively, until reaching the Curoninan Lagoon again. Finally, I just need to follow this shore all the way back to Nida. It's a nice walk that will show you most landscapes of the Curoninan Spit, easy to do in a day. I recommend walking up the dune to the view point in the morning, as the light is the most beautiful at this time - The sun is shining on the waters of the Curoninan Lagoon. I hope you enjoy the video! _______________________________________________________________ The ExplorationJunkie website: http://explorationjunkie.com/ _______________________________________________________________ Music was provided by NoCopyrightSounds.

At least 500 Russian trucks were stuck in the Lithuanian border city of Kybartai, Friday, waiting to cross the border into the Kaliningrad Region, Russia's enclave on the Baltic Sea. The long queues are due to a new road tax imposed on Russian long distance truckers which came into force from December 21.

Located on the shore of the Baltic coast, Palanga is probably the most famous seaside resort in Lithuania with it's wonderful long sandy beaches, scented pines, quiet parks and perfect seaside bike roads. But don't think that's all the town has to offer, we really liked the quite typical architecture of it's wooden houses or of it's pier. From Palanga's top picks the only place we don't really recommend is Basanavicius street, the most famous street in Palanga is crowed and full of souvenir shop's and arcades. We recommend the many parks and smaller streets of the city or renting a bike to explore the surrounding area. It makes for a perfect family resort with lots to entertain any age child, or for a party all night youngster paradise due to it's many bar's and pubs. We really enjoyed our time in Palanga, and would love to go back soon if we get a chance.

Welcome to my travelchannel.On my channel you can find almost 1000 films of more than 70 countries. See the playlist on my youtube channel.Enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/user/nurettinodunya/playlists Vilnius/ Lithuania: The name of the city originates from the Vilnia River.The city has also been known by many derivate spellings in various languages throughout its history: Vilna was common in English. Vilnius is the capital of Lithuania and its largest city, with a population of 542,664 as of 2015.Vilnius is located in the southeast part of Lithuania and is the second largest city in the Baltic states. Vilnius is the seat of the main government institutions of Lithuania as well as of the Vilnius District Municipality. Vilnius is classified as a Gamma global city according to GaWC studies, and is known for the architecture in its Old Town, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1994. Its Jewish influence until the 20th century has led to it being described as the "Jerusalem of Lithuania" and Napoleon named it "the Jerusalem of the North" as he was passing through in 1812. In 2009, Vilnius was the European Capital of Culture, together with the Austrian city of Linz. Vilnius is situated in south-eastern Lithuania (54°41′N 25°17′E) at the confluence of the Vilnia and Neris Rivers. Lying close to Vilnius is a site some claim to be the Geographical Centre of Europe. Vilnius lies 312 km (194 mi) from the Baltic Sea and Klaipėda, the chief Lithuanian seaport. Vilnius is connected by highways to other major Lithuanian cities, such as Kaunas (102 km or 63 mi away), Šiauliai (214 km or 133 mi away) and Panevėžys (135 km or 84 mi away). The city's off-centre location can be attributed to the changing shape of the nation's borders through the centuries; Vilnius was once not only culturally but also geographically at the centre of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania. The current area of Vilnius is 402 square kilometres (155 sq mi). Buildings occupy 29.1% of the city; green spaces occupy 68.8%; and waters occupy 2.1%. The climate of Vilnius is humid continental (Köppen climate classification Dfb). Temperature records have been kept since 1777. The average annual temperature is 6.1 °C (43 °F); in January the average temperature is −4.9 °C (23 °F), in July it is 17.0 °C (63 °F). The average precipitation is about 661 millimetres (26.02 in) per year. Average annual temperatures in the city have increased significantly during the last 30 years, a change which the Lithuanian Hydrometeorological Service attributes to global warming induced by human activities. Summer days are pleasantly warm and sometimes hot, especially in July and August, with temperatures above 30 °C (86 °F) throughout the day during periodic heat waves. Night-life in Vilnius is in full swing at this time of year, and outdoor bars, restaurants and cafés become very popular during the daytime. Winters can be very cold, with temperatures rarely reaching above freezing – temperatures below −25 °C (−13 °F) are not unheard-of in January and February. Vilnius's rivers freeze over in particularly cold winters, and the lakes surrounding the city are almost always permanently frozen during this time of year. A popular pastime is ice-fishing.Wikipedia

Ever wondered why a part of Russia is detached from the rest? There are a lot of weird borders in the world, and often the reason is that a country wanted access to the sea and fight like crazy to get it. They ignore any reasonable boundary between countries in exchange for a bizarre panhandle, or sometimes even cutting off parts of other countries to create a strange border situation called enclaves, which is when a part of a country is only reachable by land through other countries. This video goes over 3 bizarre border situations including why Russia has an the kaliningrad exclave, which is a result of a chain of events in world war 1 and world war 2 in which germany had a strange border where east prussia was an exclave cut off by the danzig corridor, which actually led to world war 2. There is also Angola's exclave of Cabinda cut off by the Democratic Republic of the Congo. This weird border is a by product of the scramble for Africa. Finally there is Croatia, which looks like it is taking all of Bosnia and Herzegovina's coastline until you look closely and notice a strange border strip which gives Bosnia ad Herzegovina a 20 kilometer coastline and detaches a piece of croatia. This weird border is a quirk of history, where the land in the balkans changed hands multiple times. Two Corrections: Poland was RE-created after ww1 as it was previously occupied by Germany and Russia. Also the video is a bit vague on who started ww2. It was Germany. As well Danzig is used as the name for the city of Gdansk because that is what it was at the time.

Sign showing hand holding Christmas decorations 22.Couple dressed as Santa and the Snow Maiden walk past STORYLINE There were long queues all week outside the Lithuanian Embassy in the Belarusian capital of Minsk, ahead of ceremonies marking the end of border controls along a line stretching from the Baltic Sea to the Adriatic on Friday. As many of the European Union's newest members joined the EU's passport-free zone, the switch meant an end to the days of easy and cheap entry to Lithuania for Belrusians. Now Lithuania has become one of the nine new EU members to join the Schengen zone, Belarusians will have to dig far deeper into their wallets if they want to cross the border. They used to pay five euros for a temporary visa, but the price has now gone up to as much as 60 euros for a visa valid across the whole EU bloc. Lithuania's ambassador says that all necessary preparations have been made for a smooth transition. "Hundred per cent we are ready to enter into the Schengen and as far as our embassy is concerned you can see that we have rebuilt and prolonged (extended) our consular department. Now I am sure we are ready to issue Schengen visas," he told AP Television on Thursday. The Akropolis shopping mall in Vilnius is a popular destination for many Belarusian tourists. Every weekend packed buses cross the border, as Belarusians come to shop for goods not available at home. The mall's general manager Resolvus Urbonavicius says that about 30 buses each weekend come from Belarus, bringing 1,200 customers. They spend between 300 and 700 US dollars per person on a variety of goods. So while Friday saw huge celebrations throughout Lithuania, for some Belarusians there was little to celebrate. "I'll have to cut back the number of trips I make to see my friends. I won't stop coming altogether. We play sport together so I can't do without them," said Belarusian Andrei. "It's going to hit me hard. Sixty euros is half my salary," Eduard added.

Curonian Spit - Lithuania Travel, Tours, Vacations HD World Travel https://www.youtube.com/user/World1Tube The Curonian Spit is a 98 km long, thin, curved sand-dune spit that separates the Curonian Lagoon from the Baltic Sea coast. Its southern portion lies within Kaliningrad Oblast, Russia and its northern within southwestern Lithuania. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site shared by the two countries. Geography The Curonian Spit stretches from the Sambian Peninsula on the south to its northern tip next to a narrow strait, across which is the port city of Klaipėda on the mainland of Lithuania. The northern 52 km long stretch of the Curonian Spit peninsula belongs to Lithuania, while the rest is part of the Kaliningrad Oblast, Russia (see the map). The width of the spit varies from a minimum of 400 m in Russia (near the village of Lesnoy) to a maximum of 3,800 m in Lithuania (just north of Nida). Geologic history The Curonian Spit was formed about 3rd millennium BC. A glacial moraine served as its foundation; winds and sea currents later contributed enough sand to raise and keep the formation above sea level. The existence of this narrow shoal is inherently threatened by the natural processes that govern coastal shoreline features. It depends on a dynamic balance between sand transport and deposition. If (hypothetically) the source area to the south-west were cut off, say, by a large port construction with a pier, the Spit would erode and eventually disappear. It is thus a geologically speaking ephemeral coast element. The most likely development, however, is that the shallow bay inside the Spit will eventually fill up with sediment, thus creating new land. Current state The Curonian Spit is home to the highest moving (drifting) sand dunes in Europe. Their average height is 35 meters, but some attain the height of 60 meters. Several ecological communities are present on and near the Spit, from its outer beaches to dune ridges, wetlands, meadows, and forests. Its location on the East Atlantic Flyway means it is frequently visited by migratory waterfowl. Between 10 and 20 million birds fly over the feature during spring and fall migrations, and many pause to rest or breed there. The largest town on the spit is Nida in Lithuania, a popular holiday resort, mostly frequented by Lithuanian and German tourists. The northern shoreline of Curonian Spit is the site of beaches for tourists. Both the Russian and Lithuanian parts of the spit are national parks. The settlements of the Curonian Spit (from north to south) are: Smiltynė Alksnynė Juodkrantė Pervalka Preila Nida Morskoe Rybachy Lesnoy The first six are on the Lithuanian side, while the last three are on the Russian side. The Russian side of the Curonian Spit belongs to Zelenogradsky District of the Kaliningrad Oblast, while the Lithuanian side is partitioned among Klaipėda city municipality and Neringa municipality. There is a single road that traverses the whole length of the Curonian Spit. In the Russian side it goes to Zelenogradsk, while on the Lithuanian side it goes to Smiltynė. The spit is not connected to mainland Lithuania. Car ferries provide a transportation link between Smiltynė, located on the spit, and the port town of Klaipėda. Human history According to Baltic mythology, the Curonian Spit was formed by a giantess, Neringa, who was playing on the seashore. This child also appears in other myths (in some of which she is shown as a young strong woman, similar to a female version of the Greek Heracles). From ca. 800 to 1016, the Spit was the location of Kaup, a major pagan trading centre which has not been excavated yet. The Teutonic Knights occupied the area in the 13th century, building their castles at Memel (1252), Neuhausen (1283), and at Rossitten (1372). The Spit may have been the home of the last living speaker of a now-extinct Baltic language, Old Prussian. =================== Curonian spit national park, curonian spit reviews, curonian spit travel guide, curonian spit photos, curonian spit accommodation, neringa lithuania, Curonian Spit - Lithuania Curonian Spit Travel, Curonian Spit Tours, Curonian Spit Vacations, Curonian Spit - Lithuania Travel, Lithuania Tours, Lithuania Vacations HD

Spectacular beach near Nida in the Curonian Spit Peninsula. Belonging to the National Park, this is in the Lithuanian side and only accessible by riding a bicycle. Walking along the beach you can get to the Russian border. This gorgeous Baltic sea beach is empty from tourists. Unfortunatelly it seems difficult to find such spaces in Europe.

Mid border guard looks at screen STORYLINE Lithuania is busy beefing up its border guard presence before the enlargement of the the European Union area of borderless travel known as the "Schengen zone on December 21st. A swath of the European Union's easternmost members - nine new countries, most of them ex-Communist states - join the "Schengen zone" this week. While inclusion gives them unprecedented freedom of movement, it also comes with an unprecedented responsibility to protect the 27-nation bloc's easternmost edge. To prepare, those countries - Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Slovakia and Hungary - have spent years beefing up their eastern borders with a range of advanced equipment funded heavily by the EU. They say they're ready to keep the line secure. With the border between Lithuania and Poland opening up, the former Soviet republic has redeployed many of its guards to the border with the Russian exclave of Kaliningrad. The poverty-stricken Russian region wedged between Poland and Lithuania is a source of cheap cigarettes being smuggled into the West. Patrolling the 110-kilometre (68-mile) border that separates Lithuania from Kaliningrad is not easy, even with new state-of-the-art video surveillance equipment. But the main business on this border is cigarette smuggling.

It's a big celebration for all the peoples of the EU: Lithuanians, Polish and all others bordering in Salociai-Grenstale between Latvia and Lithuania." 18. Guards carrying flag STORYLINE: The Latvia-Lithuania border control ceased to exist on Thursday, as most of the European Union's former communist new members joined the EU's passport-free travel zone. Hours before the end of border controls, Latvian and Lithuanian officials gathered at the Salociai-Grenstale border crossing, cutting a symbolic ribbon to open the way to passport-free travel in the Schengen area. "We have been waiting for a long time for this," said Simonas, a Lithuanian resident who attended the ceremony. A Lithuanian border police general said the "entire Lithuanian country will be happy." The entry of nine nations into the EU's Schengen area means citizens can travel by land or sea between 24 European nations from Portugal to Poland, Iceland to Estonia without facing border checks. It's a major step in their transition from Soviet satellites to full-fledged EU membership, but has also triggered fears of a flood of illegal immigrants that could stick Europe with a crisis similar to America's along its border with Mexico. The Schengen agreement is named after the village in Luxembourg where it was signed in 1985 by France, Germany, Belgium, Luxembourg and the Netherlands to allow citizens to travel freely between them. Since then they have been joined by Italy, Spain, Portugal, Greece, Austria, Denmark, Sweden and Finland, as well as non-EU nations Norway and Iceland. Poland, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Slovenia, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Malta joined the EU in 2004, but have had to wait before gaining access to the frontier-free zone pending reforms to bring standards of their police and border guards in line with EU norms. On Friday European leaders are expected to celebrate the end of the border controls during a ceremony in Zittau, on Germany's eastern fringe, where the country meets Poland and the Czech Republic.

Polish-Belarusian border is the state border between Poland and the Republic of Belarus. It has a total length of 398.6 km (247.7 mi), 418 km (260 mi) or 416 km (258 mi) It starts from the triple junction of the borders with Lithuania in the north and stretches to the triple junction borders with Ukraine to the south. Is also part of the EU border with Belarus. After September 1939 the BSSR were included in Western Belarus. Have established five new areas: Baranavichy, Belostokskaya, Brest, Pinsk and Vialejka. In accordance with the treaty signed August 16, 1945 between the USSR and Poland on the state border of Poland passed 17 districts Bialystok Region BSSR with 3 Bialystok and Brest region, where a significant amount of Poles lived. In 1946, during the refinement of the state border of the USSR and Poland from the Grodno Region in favor of the NDP were transferred to the village Klimovka, Minkovtsy, Nomiki, Taki, crush, Šimák Members of Sapotskinsky area - the village and Todorkavtsy Hvorostyan. Thereafter, and until now the border between Poland and Belarus has not changed. River borders (from north to south) are Black Gancia, Volkushanka, Svislach Narew and Western Bug. The Border Agreement between Poland and the USSR of 16 August 1945 established the borders between the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) and the Republic of Poland. It was signed by the Provisional Government of National Unity (Tymczasowy Rząd Jedności Narodowej) formed by the Polish communists. According to the treaty, Poland officially accepted the ceding its pre-war Eastern territory to the USSR (Kresy) which was decided earlier in Yalta already. Some of the territory along the Curzon line, established by Stalin during the course of the war, was returned to Poland. The treaty also recognised the division of the former German East Prussia and ultimately approved the finalised delimitation line between the Soviet Union and Poland: from the Baltic sea, to the border tripoint with Czechoslovakia in the Carpathians. The Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact of August 1939 provided for the partition of the Second Polish Republic between the USSR and Nazi Germany. Following the corresponding invasions, a new border was drawn up, though based on the Curzon Line, deviated west of it in several regions. Most notably, was the Belastok Voblast, that was added to the Byelorussian Soviet Socialist Republic, although most of the region was populated by Poles. After Germany's invasion of the USSR, the territory in question was also re-partitioned by the Nazis. Ukraine and Belarus were administered by the occupation Ostland and Reichskommissariat Ukraine Reichskommissariats. Galician territory east of the 1939 border and the Belastok Voblast plus adjacent territory to the east of this were transformed respectively into the Distrikt Galizien and Bezirk Bialystok, and subjugated directly to the Reich. Following the Soviet Union's liberation of Ukraine and Belarus, in 1943/1944 the Tehran and Yalta discussed upon the future of the Polish-Soviet borders, and the Allied leaders recognised the Soviet right to the territory east of the 1939 border. However, after the liberation of Western Ukraine and Belarus in summer of 1944, a Polish committee formed in the town of Sapotskin sent a letter to Moscow asking that they remain part of Poland. Stalin agreed, and on 29th of September, administration of 17 (of the 23) districts of Belastok Voblast (including the city of Białystok) and an additional three (Siemiatycze, Hajnówka and Kleszczele) of the Brest Voblast was passed to the Polish Committee of National Liberation from the BSSR. In October 1944 these were joined by a further transfer of Lubaczów, Horyniec, Laszki, Uhnów and Sieniawa raions of the Lviv Oblast from the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic. In March 1945, an additional batch of land, the Bieszczady, Lesko, and most of Przemyśl raions(including Przemyśl city) were transferred to Poland from the Drohobych Oblast of Ukraine to the now Provisional Government of the Republic of Poland. Soon afterwards World War II finished, and as the Provisional Government continued to transfer administration from military to civil bodies, it also finalised its new borders with its neighbours, and in particular, the Soviet Union. On 16th of August 1945, the border agreement was officially signed by Edward Osóbka-Morawski, on behalf of the Provisional Government of National Unity and Vyacheslav Molotov, the Soviet Minister of Foreign affairs. The exchange of ratified documents occurred on 5 February 1946 in Warsaw, and from that date the agreement was in force.

Wide of border control point with big poster STORYLINE: On the Polish-German border officials were preparing on Thursday for the former communist country to join the EU's passport-free travel zone. Border controls along the old Iron Curtain from the Baltic Sea to the Adriatic cease to exist from midnight on Thursday. The entry of nine nations into the EU's Schengen area means citizens can travel by land or sea between 24 European nations from Portugal to Poland, Iceland to Estonia without facing border checks. As a condition for joining, the new members have tightened controls on their borders with non-EU nations and linked into an information exchange system for police and border guards around the EU. "The one-stop control will be abolished, but we are well equipped to guarantee the monitoring of the borders in the area around the borders in the future,'' said Jens Schobranski, the press officer for Federal police in Frankfurt/Oder. However some residents did have concerns. "It's going to be difficult for the police to control, but I hope everything is going to be fine,'' said a German citizen. Poland, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Slovenia, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Malta joined the EU in 2004, but have had to wait before gaining access to the frontier-free zone pending reforms to bring standards of their police and border guards in line with EU norms. Travellers from outside the EU will be able to move freely within the extended zone on a visa obtained from any one of the member nations. Among the changes expected Friday, controls will fade away on the busy land crossings between Germany and Poland. Air passengers flying between the old and new EU member states will continue to face passport controls, although they too are scheduled to disappear on March 30. The Schengen agreement is named after the village in Luxembourg where it was signed in 1985 by France, Germany, Belgium, Luxembourg and the Netherlands to allow citizens to travel freely between them. Since then they have been joined by Italy, Spain, Portugal, Greece, Austria, Denmark, Sweden and Finland, as well as non-EU nations Norway and Iceland.

Lithuania Minor (Lithuanian: Mažoji Lietuva; German: Kleinlitauen; Polish: Litwa Mniejsza; Russian: Máлая Литвá) or Prussian Lithuania (Lithuanian: Prūsų Lietuva; German: Preußisch-Litauen, Polish: Litwa Pruska) is a historical ethnographic region of Prussia, later East Prussia in Germany, where Prussian Lithuanians or Lietuvininkai lived. Lithuania Minor enclosed the northern part of this province and got its name due to the territory's substantial Lithuanian-speaking population. Prior to the invasion of the Teutonic Knights in the 13th century, the main part of the territory later known as Lithuania Minor was inhabited by the tribes of Skalvians and Nadruvians. The land became depopulated to some extent during the warfare between Lithuania and the Order. The war ended with the Treaty of Melno and the land was resettled by Lithuanian newcomers, returning refugees, and the remaining indigenous Baltic peoples; the term Lithuania Minor appeared for the first time between 1517 and 1526. With the exception of the Klaipėda Region, which became a mandated territory of the League of Nations in 1920 by the Treaty of Versailles and was annexed to Lithuania from 1923 to 1939, the area was part of Prussia until 1945. Today a small portion of Lithuania Minor is within the borders of modern Lithuania and Poland while most of the territory is part of the Kaliningrad Oblast of Russia.

15 combat ships of Russian navy enter the Black Sea. According to Russia's Defence Ministry, the commandment has relocated the vessels in order to check their military battle readiness. 10 more ships are now awaiting the orders in the Caspian Sea. Military drills are also unfolding close to Ukrainian and Baltic borders, as well as on the occupied Crimean peninsula. Lithuanian authorities already claimed that Russian military exercises contribute to the crisis escalation in the region. Vilnius says that conducting drills near Lithuanian borders is a mere provocation. Poland's Defence Ministry also called the urgent meeting in view of Russian possible provocations in Kaliningrad region, bordering Poland.

This film is about a country known for its beauty and its cultural traditions - LITHUANIA. European annals have noted this land for over a thousand years, a land that was the last on this continent to continue practicing the ancient pre-Christian Baltic faith, the home of the Pagans. After it adopted Christianity, Lithuania became a powerful nation by the Baltic Sea - an open and boundless nation devoid of the usual national egoism. Unique commemorative pieces bear witness to the country's rich historical past in Trakai, Vilnius, Kaunas, Palanga, Klaipeda and Kursiu Nerija. This visual story will leave the viewer in awe of the exceptional beauty that cannot be related in words - the heart of a harmonious and sacral landscape of Lithuania. Wisps of historical memory subtly intermingle into a modern, rapidly developing Lithuania and its good-hearted people who invite you to learn about this land and love it as they do.

Nida (German: Nidden) is a resort town in Lithuania, the administrative centre of Neringa municipality. Located on the Curonian Spit between the Curonian Lagoon and the Baltic Sea, it is the westernmost point of Lithuania and the Baltic states, close to the border with the Russian Kaliningrad Oblast exclave. It currently has about 1,650 residents. A settlement area of the Baltic Curonians, the original place called nida ("fluent" in the Old Prussian language) was first mentioned in 1385 documents issued by the Teutonic Knights, who ruled the lands within their Monastic State. The original settlement on the road along the Curonian Spit from Königsberg to Memel was located about 5 km (3.1 mi) south of its today's position near the Hohe Düne (High Dune) at Cape Grobštas (from Old Prussian: grabis, "hill"). The fishing village became part of the Duchy of Prussia in 1525 and of the Kingdom of Prussia in 1701. In 1709 nearly all of the population died from a bubonic plague epidemia. Continuously threatened by sand drifts, the village was moved away from the approaching dune to today's position in the 1730s. Incorporated into the Prussian Province of East Prussia in 1773, it became part of the German Empire upon the German unification of 1871. In 1874 a lighthouse on Urbas hill was built, later destroyed in the war and rebuilt in 1945 and 1953.
