When visiting the Curonian Spit, the museum complex is a good place to start, if you want to learn about the nature and the indigenous people of this narrow strip of land. Also worthy of a visit is the Museum of Russian Superstitions next door, where, on top of the familiar Baba Yaga, Kikimora or Leshy, you will be introduced to lesser known Slavic folk characters, the likes of Vikhrovoy the wind spirit, the little Anchutka, and Sterlyazhy Tsar. Ancient Sambia is an outdoor museum, devoted to the life of the region during the Viking era. It will tell you, among other things, how amber was processed and made into jewellery back in those days.
