The Curonian Spit is a small neck of land in the west of the country and divided between Lithuania and Russia.
Human habitation of this sand dune peninsula dates back to prehistoric times and throughout this period it has been threatened by the natural forces of wind and waves. Human efforts have made it possible to survive to the present. Erosion has been prevented by reforestation projects for example. It is on the Unesco World Heritage List.
