I didn’t mention before that the Curonian Spit belongs to two countries, Lithuania and Russia. And from Nida, is very nearby to Russia – Kaliningrad (Kaliningrad Oblast).
(If you have a valid Russian visa you can try to cross the boarder, however I heard that a public transport doesn’t cover this path so well.)
p.s. This picture was taken in Nida, Lithuania.

Quaint little signs. What was their purpose?
It was something similar to a licence plate for fishing boats.
Black and white flag-size parts used to identify the village where the fisherman came from. I’m not sure if the white and red fabric part meant something. But all other parts are just decorations.
In the end this “Kurenwimpel” became a trademark for this region and a popular souvenir at the same time.
