Planning the perfect date? TOP 10 most romantic places in Neringa


The stunning Baltic seaside resort of Neringa is the ideal place for a romantic date. Its cozy villages, nestled between the Curonian Lagoon and the Baltic Sea, have their own story to tell.


From spectacular dunes and breathtaking panoramas to pine forests paths that seem to be made for meaningful conversations, this is the place to spend time with your special someone. On Valentine's Day, we present TOP 10 most romantic places to visit in Neringa. 


Parnidis Dune is one of the most spectacular sand dunes in Neringa, with stunning views of the Curonian Lagoon and the Baltic Sea. Looking south from Parnidis Dune, you will see the grandeur of the drifting dunes, Grobštas Nature Reserve. If you choose Parnidis Dune as your perfect date spot outside the summer season, you'll experience a special sense of peace as you explore the beauty of nature. 


Nida Lighthouse and Urbas Hill are perfect for slow walks. Especially if you don't want to stray too far from Nida's village and want to extend your date in one of the resort's cosy cafés or restaurants. The Nida Lighthouse sits on top of Urbas Hill like a glittering crown. In summer, you can visit it inside. After climbing the 132 steps, you'll be enchanted by the bird's-eye view... From here, you'll have a breathtaking panorama of Nida town, the Curonian Lagoon, the dunes and the sea. Nida Lighthouse is easy to reach, with many interconnecting hiking trails throughout the entire territory Urbas Hill. 

The Nagliai Nature Reserve is a unique place in Neringa, ideal for a date if your eyes are longing for the unusual, movie-like sights. A walk along the nature trail of this reserve not only gives you the opportunity to experience the beauty of nature, but also its fragility, enriching your knowledge of the local ecosystem. Be prepared for a long walk: the trail, which is just over a kilometre long and partly on sand, will require some physical endurance, but will certainly reward you with incomparable views when you reach its highest point.


The Soundcatcher in Juodkrante ancient forest is perfect for a date if your beloved likes surprises. You can reach it by walking along the paths of Juodkrante ancient forest, shrouded in a veil of mysterious beauty. When you find the Soundcatcher, wooden object with an interesting design in the middle of the forest, you can cozy up inside it. If you listen carefully, you will hear the most wonderful symphony of bird calls that the forest offers just for the two of you.


Preila Dune is a rendezvous for artistic souls. When you climb this 53-metre-high dune, you'll understand why artists used to love it so much. They painted, and you will be able to capture one of the most spectacular panoramas of the peninsula with your eyes or your camera. There are stunning views in all directions - of the Baltic Sea, the Curonian Lagoon and the unique segments of the great dune-ridge to the south and north. From the top of the dune, the keenest eyes will also see Cape Ventė on the other side of the lagoon. Peace, quiet, gentle breezes and wide spaces that are hard to cover with your eyes - everything you need for an unforgettable couple's moment.


Juodkrante quay. Time stands still as you slowly stroll along the more than 2 kilometres of the Juodkrante quay. Against the backdrop of the shimmering lagoon, you'll enjoy not only each other's company, but also the unique stone sculpture exposition "Earth and Water". As many as 31 stone sculptures have been created by artists from Lithuania, Great Britain, Sweden, Finland and other countries. In the summer, stop by to see the sand sculptures, which come to life every year during the sand sculpture symposium. 

The Hill of Witches. We have no hesitation in saying that this is one of the most mystical places for date in Neringa. Walking around the unique open-air museum of wooden sculptures, you will meet devils, witches and other heroes of folklore, you will recall your favourite or, on the contrary, somewhat frightening childhood fairy tales, and you will plunge into the natural-mystical spirit of this place. Most of the sculptures of the Hill of Witches are arranged around the picturesque natural forest amphitheatre in Juodkrantė. 


Thomas Mann Museum in Nida is an ideal place to come and listen to the most interesting stories in the warmth of the fireplace and enjoy the cosiness of the museum not only in the summer season, but also in winter days. If you plan your date here, you will have the opportunity to learn more about the life and work of the famous German writer and Nobel Prize winner Thomas Mann, enjoy a coffee on Nida's most beautiful terrace, and listen to the sound of birds. We'll let you in on a secret: the so called Italian view next to the museum, which once so enchanted Thomas Mann, could be the setting for the most important day of your love story - your wedding ceremony.

The Baltic seaside. To paraphrase the famous saying, in Neringa all roads lead to the sea. A stroll along the seashore, watching the rhythmic dance of the waves or the pink sunset, will remind you that the most perfect moment of your life is right here and now. The gentle lapping of the sea is like soothing music to accompany your conversations and thoughts, and the white sandy beach is the setting for a romantic dinner on a warm summer evening. Whether you're soaking up the sun or gazing at the stars, the sea rewards you in its own way.
