"Small-salt cucumbers firm the lower parts"
Many people associate holidays at the Polish seaside with Kołobrzeg. Many people remember school camps in a city full of monuments, visiting churches (with a mandatory point in the form of the Basilica of the Virgin Mary), a lighthouse or visits to museums. Those who have finished school see Kołobrzeg as a beautiful tourist resort with a strong spa accent. The famous Kolobrzeg peloid has been bringing relief to patients who come for treatment from Poland and other countries, including from Germany or Scandinavia.

There are also rumors that it helps to regain vigor - it is more and more often called "Kołobrzeg Viagra" for a reason. She has not been scientifically proven to work on this subject, but no one will deny her power. In the nineteenth century, when the seaside spa park was established, shrubs and trees were planted in peat lumps, thanks to which they absorbed more easily in the white sand. However, the real fame of the city was brought not by mud, but by salt. Already in the distant past, it was shipped by sea and land. Thanks to her, Kołobrzeg became brick early, which was equal to great wealth. Today, the city no longer produces salt, but tempts with brine baths in numerous plants. On the shore of Parsęta, in the northern part of the Salt Island , there is a brine spring - a great tourist attraction, visited by the inhabitants during the pickling season. Homemade pickles can be bought not only in the store, but also on the beach, at sellers encouraging customers with slogans: "Small-salt cucumbers tighten the lower parts".
In addition to the benefits of mud and brine, Kołobrzeg offers a wonderful, unique microclimate of the beach. A refreshing sea breeze and the so-called sea spray (occurring on windy days) guarantees that walking on the sand will be pure pleasure. What's more, after an intense party, they chase away the hangover - tourists were often surprised that the next morning they hated it, but could still enjoy their rest in Kołobrzeg . And there is a place to rest. There are parks in the city with a total area of approx. 90 ha, four of which are entered in the Register of Monuments.
