The presentation of the new outdoor information system to the community and the media took place in the Curonian Spit National Park. New viewpoints, modern, interesting information stands, hiking and cycling routes, unexpected panoramic views of the Curonian Spit on the tops of hitherto unvisited dunes - all this awaits you in the renewed Curonian Spit National Park.

About 50 information stands, about 200 arrows ... Which not only direct the visitor to famous natural places, but also offer new ones, from which the enchanting landscapes of the Curonian Spit open: from Preila dune, from Skripsto hill, from Avikalnis ... Worth noting and original respite objects - sunbeds, chairs, reminiscent of dune silhouettes.

According to the project „Kraštovaizdžio vertybių apsauga ir pritaikymas pažinti“, not only information stands were installed, but also original sightings: on the dune of the Bear's Head, in the Avikalnis and Kormoran breeding grounds. The sightings in these places used to be, I found incomparably smaller and completely worn out. Now not only the landscape has become an interesting object, but also the buildings themselves, the spectacles of the original shape.

New objects in unusual, newly discovered places on the Curonian Spit will encourage visitors to see the landscape anew. There are even a few points with great views of both the lagoon and the sea. Here you can watch not only sunrises in the Curonian Lagoon, but also sunsets in the Baltic Sea.

Most of them can only be reached by bicycle or on foot, which not only promotes a nature-friendly, ecological way of traveling, but also satisfies the recently increased need for active leisure in nature. It’s fun to walk on a moose or beaver trail because that’s how the new routes are marked. You can scan the QR code and download the route to your smartphone.

The new field information system of the Curonian Spit National Park has been installed in accordance with the project „Kraštovaizdžio vertybių apsauga ir pritaikymas pažinti“, initiated by the State Service for Protected Areas under the Ministry of Defense and implemented by the Curonian Spit National Park Directorate. The project is funded by the European Regional Development Fund.
