Nida Gliding School was the principal Lithuanian gliders' summer camp which existed from 1933 to 1939. Over 500 glider pilots graduated from it. This school is related to the achievements of the world-record-breaker Ferdinand Schulz (in 1927, he glided 60.2 metres) and Lithuanian-record-breaker Alfredas Gysas (in 1938, he stayed in air for 26 hours and 30 minutes). On the basement of the former school bulding, there was an arch built in 1978 to commemorate the former gliding school. In 1998, in commemoration of the 65th anniversary of the school, the monumental stone to Lithuanian and German gliders was unveiled. One can find the location of the former gliding school by taking a turn from the path leading to the Parnidis Dune.
