Nida is the largest settlement in the Curonian Spit. The settlement’s urban structure is the result of a long historical development process. Nida’s urban-architectural framework has developed over hundreds of years. Year after year, the social expression and development of elements have evolved here which had an impact to today's ethno-cultural and urban development of the reserves. Ethno-cultural and urban reserves should evolve in a way that could maintain the network of roads and streets, construction sites structure, building orientation that have formed over the centuries. This paper examines the central part of Nida historical-urban development, the buildings of the area, the protection and management options. The impact of the projected structures formed in the context of the historic buildings are analysed as well. This paper provides an overview of the circumstances on which the local folk tradition could be preserved.

Keywords: Curonian Spit; ethno-cultural; urban reserves.
