bikeCycling by the Lithuanian seacoast.


Lithuanian seacost – the Curonian Spit, Seaside Regional Park and the most popular sea resort Palanga. The unique Neringa resort located on the Curonian Spit stretches for even 50 kilometres connecting the settlements of Juodkrantė, Preila, Pervalka and Nida. Wandering Nida dunes leave all visitors astounded. Standing on the peak of dunes you’ll enjoy a breathtaking view: hills of white sand and waves of the Baltic, the verdure of pine-trees and calm Curonian Lagoon. You get the feeling of listening to the symphony of wind, sand and water performed by nature.The Giruliai Forest, the place where the cognition with seaside nature and history comes to an end, the Seaside Regional Park with its 24 m high cliff – Dutchman‘s Cap, desolate and clean beaches, many rare plants and a great variety of birds. Palanga – the Amber Museum which houses very rich amber collection, the Botanical Park of Palanga with Birute's Hill - a 22-metre-high dune, the central street full of souvenir shops, open-air cafes leading to the beach and the pier. And of course bicycle paths, specially designed for panoramic tours.

It could sound surprisingly strange, but the history of medical tourism goes way back to the Greeks and Romans if not even further. At that time pilgrims would travel to shrines and pools that were said to contain healing powers.

Medical tourism, also known as health travel, medical travel, or global health care is in the recent time rapidly gaining popularity in Lithuania by tourists from Middle East, United States, Western Europe and elsewhere. All this is reasonably explained first of all by low prices: Lithuania is a real solution to the high cost of healthcare in other countries – it is 3 to 4 times cheaper. Secondly, we are proud of professional and qualified doctors that have been trained in Western Europe or United States. Thirdly, assured quality of the procedures and EU standardised health care centres.

In 2008 traveling community was introduced with new route for cyclists „Su dviračiu po Gražutės regioninį parką“. We believe that this cycle track really differs from other cycle ways in Lithuania: it isn‘t easy to “defeat” this cycle track, track is mainly covered by forest roads, relief is impressively hilly. So it isn‘t enough to have map and strong will, equipment and mountain bike will be needed here too. In the process of Gražutė cycle tracks arrangement a lot of informational signs and directive arrows were installed to prevent from going astray. Moreover, here you can find stands with maps and information about Regional Park of Gražutė, its nature and objects of interest. These tracks are valuable in various aspects; everyone from biologist to geologist will be intrigued here.
