The first Lithuanian section of the European bicycle route introduces you to impressive coastal landscapes.

Here you can see a unique dune peninsula, the Curonian Spit, created by the Baltic Sea, and the Curonian Lagoon behind it.

The long spit of land with its white dunes was created over millennia by the action of wind and waves.

Rare plant and animal species exist here and are protected by law.

The historic Trakai national park contains the former capital of Lithuania with surrounding waterways and delightful countryside. Lake Galve, the largest, contains the red-brick castle of Trakai that is built on a small island but looks like it rises straight from the waters.
