The port of Nida ( Lithuanian Nidos uostas ; passenger port Nida , Nidos keleivinis uostas ) is a fishing , passenger and inland port in the municipality of Neringa on the Curonian Spit in Lithuania , not far from Klaipėda . The harbor is located in the southern part of Nida ( German Nidden ) on the lagoon side of the spit.
At the end of the 19th century a fishing port was established and later a steamship yard was built. In Soviet Lithuania the fishing base was developed and port approaches repaired. A hotel, the customs office building and part of the old fishermen's apartments were demolished. The Nida passenger port began to form from 1975 to 1976 when a pier was built. In 1991 a second pier was built.
In 1999 the status of the international inland port was granted. A border control post was set up in the passenger port.
