Tропa Балтийского взморья - Маршрут

Coastline of Curonian lagoon

Piekrastes ainavas, zvejnieku ciemi un Klaipēda

Ventė – Dreverna – Klaipeda: 50 km, 2 dienas.

Ventes (Ventė) ragā atrodas putnu gredzenošanas stacija ar nelielu bāku, no kuras var redzēt Kuršu līča jeb Kuršu jomas ūdeņus. Piekrastes ciemos attīstās tūrisma infrastruktūra, jo šīs vietas iecienījuši kaitotāji. Jūrtaka izlokās cauri Drevernai – kādreizējam zvejnieku ciemam, kur atrodas jahtu osta un kempings. Tālāk tā 10 km garumā virzās gar industriālā mantojuma būvi - Karaļa Vilhelma kanālu, ko būvēja 19.gs. 60-70-ajos gados, nosaucot par godu tālaika Vācijas ķeizaram Vilhelmam Pirmajam. No Klaipēdas (Klaipėda) ar prāmi var pārcelties uz Kuršu kāpām, kur atrodas apmeklētāju iecienītais Jūras muzejs un Delfinārijs. Klaipēda savulaik ietilpa Austrumprūsijā un atradās vācu kultūras ietekmē, tās vēsturiskais nosaukums ir Mēmele. Klaipēdas vecpilsētas plānojums atšķiras ar ģeometrisku precizitāti, kur visi krustojumi ir 90 grādu leņķī.

Along the eastern coast of the Curonian Lagoon

From the Ventė Cape the Baltic Coastal Hiking trail goes down Marių Street (Road No. 2201) towards Klaipėda. The coastal scenery comes to life with colourful buildings featuring abundant wood decorations. Some of these house accommodation and catering establishments. After 5 km, the trail turns off towards the Curonian Lagoon and continues on along a narrow coastal trail through a mire forest. There are rest spots and watchtowers providing beautiful views of the Curonian sand dunes about 8–10 km away. Having made a loop of about 3 km, the Baltic Coastal Hiking trail returns to its previous course, and reaches the centre of the Village of Kintai in about 2 km, where it is worth taking the time to see its architectural heritage. After Kintai, the Baltic Coastal Hiking trail leads through 5 km of beautiful, pine covered dunes. 3 km before the Village of Draverna the trail crosses Svencelė,  Lithuania’s most popular wind-surfing and kite-surfing locale. The place is bustling with resort development as new, alternative tourist accommodations, camp sites and catering establishments are being built. In the Village of Dreverna, the trail turns off on Bangų Street. It is worth going down to the Dreverna port, from where the majestic Curonian Spit can be seen across the Curonian Lagoon.
