Moving dunes

In the Slowinski National Park every day there is a special spectacle, whose main characters are sand and the wind. The biggest dune is 40 metres high – Gora Lacka, they move around several metres per year, covering the nearby forest. The nearby forest is as mysterious as the dunes, full of broken by the wind trees, showing how the ecosystem works. Some kayak paths end here, like those from Leba and Lupawa rivers.

Check what is inside the sea depth

Those who love the sea life have to visit the Sealplace of the Sea Institute of Gdansk University department of Oceanography in Hel and the Sea Aquarium in Gdynia. The Sealplace in Hel is mainly a scientific research facility, they want to enlarge the seal population in the Baltic Sea.

The Sea Aquarium in Gdynia on the other hand is housing the most interesting and the rarest kinds of fish, amphibians and reptiles from all over the world, for example Africa and North and South America. There are tree floors, 68 enormous water glasses, 1500 living organisms.

The richness of the sea gives opportunity to spend Your free time in an active, dynamic or romantic way. Sea sports, it is not just sailing or diving but also windsurfing, kitesurfing, water scooters as well as, pleasure boat or fishing boat trips.

On clean, Baltic beaches it is worth going for horse riding, jogging, nordic walking or just strolling, searching for piece of amber.
