The Kurshskaya Kosa National Park, also known as the Curonian Spit, is the smallest and at the same time one of the most visited national parks in Russia. It is located on the narrow strip of land between the salty Baltic Sea and freshwater Curonian Lagoon in the Kaliningrad region.
The area to which the Curonian Spit belongs is called the "Amber Coast," as fossilized organic gemstones have been excavated there extensively for a long time. The northern boundaries of the park are on the Russian-Lithuanian border, so this UNESCO World Heritage Site is shared by the two countries. Enjoy the stunning pictures in this photo gallery.
