The Baltic: an unspoilt coastline
The Polish Baltic coast runs for over 500 kilometers. Unlike the heavily developed coastlines od Southern Europe, it has remained mostly unspoilt. One will find here dunes and cliffs, small islands, lakes and lagoons; and wide beaches, usually separated from civilisation by a band of coniferous forest running along the coast. During Summer, pleasant but not excessive temperatures are ideal for sunbathing or strolling along the beach. With a little luck you can still find pieces of amber in the sand; if not, many artisans offer jewelry and art objects made of the „gold of the Baltic”. The Woliński and Słowiński national parks protect, respectively, the island of Wolin in the estuary of the Oder and the spectacular moving sand dunes in the eastern part of the coast of Poland.
