Ethnographic Cemetery And Christenings (Sights)

Close to Nida Church of Evangelical Lutherans there is Nida ethnographic cemetery of XIX – XX c.

The wooden tomb monuments of unique shape, typical for the Curonian Spit, called christenings have lived at the ethnographic cemetery to our days. During male christening, horse heads, drawings of plants and birds used to be carved; at female tombs monuments there were drawings of plants and heart beside the birds.

The author of christenings restoration project is Eduardas Jonusas. The restored christenings are positioned in the farthest corner of the cemetery.

The cemetery is available for attendance.

The honorable town resident – the architect Algimantas Zavisa is buried there.
