architectural guide – english version coming this autumn
This guide to the architecture of Neringa tells for the first time the story of the fishing villages which became a prestigious holiday resort.
The Curonian Spit, whose shores are lapped by the Baltic Sea and the Curonian Lagoon, is today the symbol of a holiday idyll - pine forests, white sandy beaches, dunes, small carefully cherished towns and an abundance of nature in the wild. Here, there are no luxury hotels, spas or restaurants on the seashore, yet Neringa attracts holidaymakers from all over the world at all times of year. Why? How has this come about?
From this architectural guide you will discover that, up to the war, the centre of Neringa was Juodkrantė with its magnificent villas, while the peace and quiet of Nida was coveted by artists; that here, records were broken by gliders launched from the dunes; and that a significant number of today’s holiday houses were built in the Soviet period, whereas almost nothing new has been built in the years since independence.
The guide recounts the histories of 90 buildings and sites, supplemented by photos and drawings.
