Valley of Death |

South of the settlement of Nida, Neringa

This valley is located between the Parnidis Dune and the Gliders' Dune. There, between 1870 and 1872, a camp for French war prisoners was established. Many prisoners died due to the poor prison's conditions, exhaustion and disease. They were buried in the camp's cemetery located in the same place. Therefore, the valley started to bear such a name.
