994 LT/RU - Curonian Spit (2000)

Brief Description

"Human habitation of this elongated sand dune peninsula, 98 km long and 0.4-4 km wide, dates back to prehistoric times. Throughout this period it has been threatened by the natural forces of wind and waves. Its survival to the present day has been made possible only as a result of ceaseless human efforts to combat the erosion of the Spit, dramatically illustrated by continuing stabilisation and reforestation projects."

库尔斯沙嘴
"这个延伸出来的沙丘半岛长98公里,宽0.4-4公里,史前时代就有人类居住。自古以来,这里受到了海风、潮汐等自然力量的威胁,由于一代又一代的人通过不断的造林固沙工程与沙嘴的侵蚀进行搏斗,使遗址如今得以存在。"
