Nida Evangelical Lutheran Church neighbours Nida Ethnographic Cemetery, dating back to the 19th and 20th c. The ethnographic cemetery has Krikštai, wooden grave markers that were common in the Curonian Spit and have survived until this day in their original forms.
This valley is located between the Parnidis Dune and the Sklandytojų Dune. There, between 1870 and 1872, a camp for French war prisoners was set up. Many prisoners died due to the poor detention conditions, exhaustion and diseases. They were buried in a cemetery set up in the camp itself. Therefore, the valley started to bear such a name.
