Northern Poland is an area of intense natural beauty mixed with the commerce and cosmopolitan charm at Gdansk. Those who love the water tend to migrate to the country's Baltic coastline, which is home to sun and fun in the form of sandy beaches. In addition, the Great Masurian Lakes of the northeast are placid, beautiful and endless in number.
There are almost 100 miles of trails amongst the beaches and dunes of Slowinski National Park along the Baltic Sea coast, which gives way to wooded area as it travels further south. Water covers over half the park's area with two lakes and seven lakes spreading their azure colors amongst the pines and sand dunes. The park's remote nature and wild reaches draw birds of various species, while deer, elk, wild pigs and rabbits also reside in the timber.
Gdansk, the country's major port city, is emerging as a travel hotspot as it stocks its historic streets with new restaurants and shopping amongst the picturesque Burgher houses. A great deal of restoration has gone into the city's merchant center where a bygone era mixes seamlessly with the new. From the ornate houses along Dluga Street to town, the city has a Dutch feel to it. St. Mary's Church lays claim to the title of largest brick church in Europe, which contrasts with the quaint confines of the Royal Chapel. And for a touch of history, visit the Gdansk shipyards, the birthplace of Lech Walesa's protest movement which helped topple Communism in Eastern Europe.
