Lithuania – Curonian Spit

Dreaming of a trip to Europe? Well, it’s time to get more specific. There’s a grand total of 48 countries across this ultra-diverse continent, from Iceland in the north to Cyprus in the south, and even out to the Ural Mountains in Russia. To help you decide where to plonk your American booty next, here’s the most flat-out gorgeous spot in each and every one of ‘em.

Albania

Ksamil Beach

Is Albania at the top of your beach vacation wishlist this summer? Didn’t think so. Maybe that’s because you haven’t seen the beach at Ksamil, the jewel of the Albanian Riviera, with dazzling white sand, turquoise water, and three idyllic islands in the bay. Don’t forget your snorkel.

Andorra

Lagos de Tristaina

These high-mountain lakes are your reward for taking on the Estanys de Tristaina hiking trail, a 3-mile route next to the French border in the north of this bite-sized principality. Free-grazing horses hang out up here, presumably for the killer combination of fresh water and awesome views. Take a picnic, and something to wear for your well-earned dip.

Discover UNESCO Sites – Curonian Spit; EpicWander

The Curonian Spit is a unique and vulnerable, sandy and wooded cultural landscape on a coastal spit with small Curonian lagoon settlements.

This extended sand dune peninsula is 98 km long and 0.4-4 km wide. Its human habitation dates back to prehistoric times. During this period, natural forces of wind and wave have threatened the spit. Only continuous human efforts to fight the erosion of the Spit have made possible its survival today.

Transboundary site

The Curonian Spit is a transboundary property, belonging both to the Klaipeda Region (Lithuania) and the Kaliningrad District (Russian Federation). The status of their respective National Parks guarantees the protection of the cultural landscape. They share the common goal of preserving the natural and cultural attributes of the property.
