Places of Interest

Thomas Mann House-Museum (Thomo Manno Memorialinis Muziejus)
The Nobel Prize winning German author of Death in Venice, Doctor Faustus and scores of other novels, short stories and essays, Thomas Mann (1875-1955) spent the summers of 1930 and 1931 in Nida.
His summer house, which overlooks the lagoon, is now a museum, and many of the rooms have been given over to exhibits charting the man's fascinating life both here and abroad. A tour of the museum with an expert offers a fascinating way to spend an hour or so whilst in Nida.
Address: Skruzdynės 17, Nida

Ethnographic Fisherman’s Museum (Žvejo Etnografinė Sodyba)

Evangelical Lutheran Church (Nidos Evangelikų Liuteronų Bažnyčia)
Dating from 1888, this classic red brick Gothic beauty functioned as a museum during Soviet times and was handed back to the Church exactly a century after its construction.
Inside are a relatively new organ, some fine stained glass and a lot of iconography relating to the local fishing industry. Of most interest however are the graves in the attached ethnographic cemetery. Known in the local parlance plural as krikštai (christenings), these peculiar graves feature markers at the foot of the graves rather than the usual headstone arrangement. Using masculine-named wood for deceased males and vice-versa and carved with horses’ heads, plants and birds, the footstones, for want of a better word, are placed thus to help the deceased rise up on Judgement Day.
Address: Pamario 43, Nida
