Kuršių Nerija Nat. Park

The Curonian Spit is a peninsula extending between the Baltic Sea and the Curonian Lagoon. Its length is 97 kilometers. 52 kilometers of it belong to Lithuania and 45 kilometers belong to the Russian Federation. The broadest place is at the Bulvikis promontory (around 4 km) and the most narrow place is to the north of Šarkuva (Russia)(around 400 m). The Curonian Spit is very beautiful in all seasons. Its total area is 180 km2. The highest point is Vecekrugas dune (around 67.2 m). In 2000 the Curonian Spit was included into the UNESCO world heritage list as having a cultural landscape value.

Now the spit is almost completely overgrown with forests. On the Lithuanian side only Naglių and Grobštas natural reserves and Parnidis landscape reserve have fragments of dunes not overgrown with wood plants. A little more of such areas are on the Russian side.

The area of Naglių reserve is 1680 ha. It extends between Juodkrantė and Pervalka for nine kilometers. The most valuable elements of the reserve are the grey (Dead) dunes, places of former settlements covered up with sand, natural forest verdure and hundred year forests' soil buried under the sand. Because of strong winds impressive depressions and gullies form in these dunes. At some places old soil fragments appear.

Grobštas natural reserve has the area of 170 ha. It is between Parnidis landscape reserve and the border of Russian Federation.

The reserve has the landscape valuable for its aestheticism. In this territory there are the great wind blown dune ridges, a seaside palvė complex, Nida settlement covered up with sand. Here is the Sklandytojų dune which formerly was the highest (70m). The present hight is 50m.

In the Curonian Spit there are three ecological-educational paths such as an educational path in Nagliai, educational dendrologic path (in Juodkrantė), Parnidis educational path (in Nida). In May of 2007 an educational path Nature's Mysteries for younger visitors was opened (in Smiltynė, near Visitors' Center). Also, a bicycle lane from Smiltynė till Nida was opened. Near Juodkrantė there is a watch ground to observe the colony of cormorants.

пишет:Today, considering the fast way of life that evyenore leads, credit cards have a big demand in the economy. Persons out of every field are using the credit card and people who aren't using the card have made arrangements to apply for even one. Thanks for sharing your ideas in credit cards./wp-login.php?action=registerThese days of austerity as well as relative stress about incurring debt, a lot of people balk contrary to the idea of utilizing a credit card to make purchase of merchandise or maybe pay for a trip, preferring, instead to rely on the particular tried plus trusted technique of making transaction cash. However, if you possess cash on hand to make the purchase fully, then, paradoxically, this is the best time for them to use the cards for several good reasons./wp-login.php?action=registerOne thing is the fact one of the most widespread incentives for applying your card is a cash-back or even rebate offer. Generally, you're going to get 1-5% back upon various acquisitions. Depending on the cards, you may get 1% back again on most expenditures, and 5% in return on buying made going to convenience stores, filling stations, grocery stores along with member merchants'. /wp-login.php?action=registerThanks for these guidelines. One thing I additionally believe is the fact that credit cards providing a 0% rate often entice consumers in with zero interest rate, instant authorization and easy over-the-internet balance transfers, nevertheless beware of the real factor that can void your own 0% easy road annual percentage rate and to throw you out into the very poor house quickly./wp-login.php?action=registerThanks for your suggestions. One thing I've noticed is banks along with financial institutions are aware of the spending patterns of consumers while also understand that most of the people max out there their own credit cards around the trips. They sensibly take advantage of this real fact and then start flooding your own inbox plus snail-mail box using hundreds of Zero APR card offers right after the holiday season finishes. Knowing that should you be like 98% in the American public, you'll get at the opportunity to consolidate consumer credit card debt and transfer balances to 0 rate credit cards.
