The Masurian Lake District

The Masurian Lake District

Masuria is not only large lakes, but also modern canals which connect the northern part of the lakes with the south, making it possible to visit all the interesting locations on the map. The Masuria region is full of charming and historic cities and towns with many monuments that we would like to show you.

On the lakes that are part of the great Masurian lakes there are many large sailing ports as well as small, intimate, marinas where you can moor, and take advantage of catering and entertainment facilities. In local restaurants and pubs, you will find Polish cuisine and, above all, fish dishes from the lakes supplied by local fishermen.

The Masuria region is also known for its wild nature, where nature is well connected with civilization. There are nature reserves and forests under protection. In the local forests, you can see amongst others, bison, wolves, lynxes, and, in the water, otters and cranes. This is just a small list of the animals living in Masuria.

The weather in Poland can be a big (and pleasant) surprise for British visitors. Summers are hot and dry, although there can be a few brief showers. The weather definitely favours sailors and people who like to spend time outside.

In 2011, Masuria was a finalist of the “New 7 Wonders of Nature” competition, where people from all over the world voted. The campaign attracted 100 million voters.

To sum up, Masuria is most beautiful and worth visiting. The atmosphere, weather and landscapes are unique, especially from a sailor’s perspective, and we are keen to show you this wonderful place.
