17 October 2009 - LT-49715 - Kedainiai

I received my first card from Lithuania on 17 October 2009!! And...it was an UNESO site as well! The card has travelled a distance of 1290 kms in 11 days. This means that I have received cards from all the Baltic States.

The card shows us Klaipeda, the city and the Curonian Spit.



Human habitation of this elongated sand dune peninsula, 98 km long and 0.4-4 km wide, dates back to prehistoric times. Throughout this period it has been threatened by the natural forces of wind and waves. Its survival to the present day has been made possible only as a result of ceaseless human efforts to combat the erosion of the Spit, dramatically illustrated by continuing stabilisation and reforestation projects.
