Nida is a famous resort in Curonian Bay, Lithuania. Nida is the largest settlement on the Curonain Spit â€“ a long, thin peninsula of sand dunes that extends from Kalingrad in the south to not quite touch Klaipeda with itâ€™s northern tip. The spit, roughly half Russian and half Lithuanian territory, is 98km long and just 400m wide at itâ€™s narrowest point. In Nida on the top of the Parnidzio Dune there is a sand clock.This location is quite unique since here as in the middle of the ocean one can determine one`s precise co-ordinates and the local time.
