Masuria is one of the most beautiful regions of Poland. For years, it has been very popular among tourists - it is most crowded in the period from July to August, but also in the off-season there are many people willing to spend their holidays at the Great Masurian Lakes. In September, lovers of peace and quiet come here, it is also the time of sailors. In winter, cross-country skiers, lovers of ice sailing, ice fishermen and fans of diving under the ice come out on the frozen surface. An increasingly popular sport is the so-called trip skating, i.e. skating on natural ice.
Vacation at the Masurian lake
Each year, thousands of Poles rest in Masuria, as well as people coming on vacation from Germany , the British Isles or Ukraine. According to the Central Statistical Office, in 2016 the inhabitants of these countries visited our country most frequently. No wonder that they liked the landscapes of Masurian lakes and the rich offer of tourist centers, which - seeing the interest growing every year - develop it dynamically. On the route of the Great Masurian Lakes, in the heart of the Piska Forest, there is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Masuria, Ruciane-Nida .

A dozen or so tourist centers are located on the nearby lakes (Guzianka Wielka and Nidzkie), there are sailing harbors and, of course, beaches.
