Cold war museum

At the time when the United States started building underground military bases, it was decided that the Soviet Union had to maintain its military advantage. For that reason in September 1960 in the village of Plokščiai the Soviets started rapid construction of an underground military base, one of the first in the S. U. The shore of the Plateliai Lake and the Plokštinė forests were perfectly suitable for the construction of the military base. The chosen location for the base was located 160 m above sea level, the soil was easy to excavate and the local population was small. The local inhabitants were poor farmers who were paid 4.5 thousand rubles to move their farms. Further, from this location all of the Europe could be covered by the missiles, which could reach Turkey and southern European countries.

Curonian Spit

It’s a place with its spectacular UNESCO scenery is the elite seaside resort of Lithuania. It spans a narrow peninsula merely 2 km wide and 98 km long, with half of that length in Lithuania. Curonian Lagoon separates the Spit from mainland Lithuania. The Curonian Spit for centuries has been an area of massive travelling dunes, the “Lithuanian Sahara”. Its few fishing villages used to be ephemeral: over 10 of them are known to have been consumed by the moving dunes. Some large swatches of breathtaking dunes remain, but since 19th century the landscape is dominated by pine forests, a titanic successful attempt by the locals to tame the nature.

That’s one of the most beautiful part of Lithuania and I’m sure you will love it! I suggest to spend at least one day in Curonian Spit, to feel how great and wonderful place it is.
