A seaside town for the discerning holidaymaker
For most of us, holidays in Poland mean rest either in the mountains or at the seaside. The Baltic Sea is more associated with summer and autumn, although even in winter and spring, a walk along the seashore may turn out to be a remarkable form of relaxation. However, it is not without reason that the largest number of tourists on the Baltic Sea can be found in the warm months. Then, among the forms of spending time, sunbathing on the beach and swimming in the sea dominate.
Meanwhile, the Baltic Sea and the towns situated above it offer much more attractions for both adults and children. One of the best known coastal cities in Poland is Kołobrzeg. It is located in the north-western part of the country, in the Zachodniopomorskie Province. What distinguishes Kołobrzeg is certainly the date of its foundation, which is estimated at the 8th century, although Kołobrzeg did not receive city rights until 1255. Thus, the number of monuments that can be found in it is not surprising. The register of monuments includes, among others Śródmieście, the Co-Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the construction of which began in the 13th century, a complex of parks from the 19th and 20th centuries, the Fuse Tower built in the 14th century and the Gothic town hall. Among the more modern attractions in Kołobrzeg, you can see the water tower built in 1885, as well as the building of the Post Office from 1884 and a road bridge from 1909.
Kołobrzeg is not only history. It is primarily a wealth of flora and fauna. The Parsęta River, which separates the Słowińskie Coast from the Trzebiatów Coast, flows through the city center. The climate of Kołobrzeg is dominated by the proximity of the sea, which means that there are few very hot and very cold days throughout the year. This climate is particularly conducive to the treatment of diseases of the upper respiratory tract.
People coming to sanatoriums located in Kołobrzeg will surely appreciate the mud treatments, and as a curiosity they can visit the open-pit mine where such mud is extracted. In addition, Kołobrzeg also has natural brine springs, which are located at the mouth of the Parsęta River, and mineral water springs.
Regardless of whether we are planning a trip to a sanatorium or we want to organize a trip on our own, there are many opportunities to rest in Kołobrzeg. Thanks to the rich accommodation base, we can rent rooms in Kołobrzeg even at the last minute. Therefore, Kołobrzeg is a good place to rest when we want to regenerate and improve our health by treating ourselves in sanatoriums, but also an ideal solution for completely spontaneous trips for the weekend or for the entire vacation.
