Curonian Spit to be Protected with Strengthening Structures

Modern coast strengthening structures will be erected from the side of the Baltic Sea for protection of the unique Curonian Spit.
      The amount of 10 million roubles has been allocated for this purpose from the budget of the Kaliningrad Region.
      During the recent powerful storms that befell the Kaliningrad Region, the unique national park Curonian Spit of federal value has been considerably damaged.
      The Curonian Spit stretches from Zelenogradsk town in the Kaliningrad Region to the Lithuanian town of Klaipeda. It is 98 km long, whereas its width fluctuates from 400 m to 3.8 kilometers. A part of the Curonian Spit belongs to the Kaliningrad Region of the Russian Federation, and another part is Lithuanian. The border is located on the 49th kilometer. The national park Curonian Spit is located on the Russian half.
