God’s weak memory

We’re at the seaside! Actually we could end his description right now. What else do we need. However, because we are in the Pomeranian voivodeship, the “big water” is surrounded by additional, as large attractions. The old legend says that God has somewhat forgotten this part of the world while creating it and after having realized his mistake he needed to use a material left from shaping other lands and thus originated this unusual area. You could mistake a richness of landscape with ostentation. Well, if that was God’s plan, it would have been a sin not to implement it.

Big water, big voivodeship

Pomeranian is not small. It constitutes as much as six per cent of the country area, which equals eighteen thousand square kilometers. Altogether the length of shore is three hundred fifty kilometers. The province is situated in the central part of South Baltic lakelands. This is where the largest river in Poland, Vistula, ends its journey. Pomeranian is a land of water – those dissatisfied with salty water have a number of lakes to choose. In the central, South-Western and South-Eastern parts there are particularly many of them, with ten, whose surface area exceeds five thousand hectares. This voivodeship is among the most wooded, because as much as thirty per cent of the area is covered with forest. This is where famous Tuchola Forest is situated, one of the largest complexes of this sort in Europe.


Gdańsk Pomerania has an interesting and turbulent history. Partitions of Poland brought the Prussian rule here only to make it a German property next. After the First World War the region found itself within Polish borders again, but not for long. Gdańsk was an exception as between years 1807-1815 and 1920-1939 it had a Free-City status. The city raised many prominent Poles and its history is filled with breakthroughs. The greatest of them assumed nowadays is undoubtedly the burst of Solidarity movement and, now symbolic, 1980. Lech Wałęsa, becoming a Nobel Prize winner soon after, together with shipyard workers initiated democratic changes, which not only changed the situation in Poland but thus also prompted other Central-Eastern European countries to changes. The city – a cradle of freedom and democracy movements – saw a great social impulse. It made the city and the whole region famous world-wide forever. Those events are already being commemorated in separate museums, during exhibitions as well as through dedicated boards and memorials. Walking through the streets it is easy to come across traces of those days.

Gdańsk, Sopot, Gdynia. Today it is actually a single urban organism. Comprising of three well-connected and interspersing parts. Three neighboring cities mean three times more attractions for tourists. For example Gdynia Aquarium offers you a chance to see animals inhabiting all of the oceans. This is also where you can see specimens of animals and plants. Once in Sopot don’t forget to take a walk along the pier in Sopot. A five-hundred meters trip into the sea is truly an amazing experience. And it is as much healthy – we recommend it to all those who suffer from iodine deficiency but also to those who just want to have fun. Nothing short of a temptation is Hel Peninsula… etc. You see, talking about Pomerania is like setting out into sea. The farther off the shore you are, the more stories you have to tell!
