ACCOMMODATION PROBLEMS AT NIDA

Via Hansa & Borealis has for many year had a solid co-operation with the main hotels in Nida, the main resort on the Lithuanian side of the Curonian Spit, a 100 km long land spit connecting Klaipeda with the Kaliningrad Region. However, the main hotel in the resort, the Nidos Banga hotel, changed its operator this spring and half of the hotel has been closed. The hotels in Nida are not any longer very interested in groups in the high season and our group allotment for the summer 2022 is already fairly exhausted. We recommend groups which want to visit the Nida in the summer to stay overnight in Klaipeda and arrange the visit to the Curonian Spit as full-day excursion from Klaipeda. For FITs we are still able to offer accommodation in Nida for 2022, For further information, please contact: jurgita.slizyte@viahansaborealis.com
