PUSTKOWO - DZIWNÓWEK - DZIWNÓW - INTERWODZIE - MIĘDZYZDROJE - LUBIN - WAPNICA - WOLIN ROUTE 140km
Finding a place to stay by the sea in winter… quite an art. It worked in Pustków. It surprised us a lot when we turned there from the main road - and here a fabulously lit town. Departure, unfortunately, not a camper, which after a few trips with luggage to the room, we regret a bit, but it's cold brrr, so you have to sacrifice yourself :) The weather, unfortunately, is not good since the morning it is pouring, so we bloom in the room. In the morning it only rains so we set off on a cruise. West direction today. We start with Dziwnówek. He's practically a living spirit, but there is a sea, at least we'll say hello to him.
In places, Dziwnów has already passed its heyday. We reach the mouth of the Dziwna River. There is a border crossing here, but we don't use it :) We're going back towards the beach.
In between is separated by a large forest from the sea. They led stairs through the dunes, so we can do it. The beaches are nice everywhere, but how to get to them by camper ...
Somewhere at the bend in front of Świętouście, there is a parking lot on the right side of the road. We barely passed it, but I think you could stay here longer. Further on, hilly areas begin, as if we were not at the Polish seaside. In front of Międzyzdroje there is a bison farm, Kawcza Góra, so we won't be bored. Unfortunately, the farm is closed today (there is a parking lot nearby), but you can climb to the top. We park right in the first street, somewhere near the beach, just outside the city. We pass the gate of the Wolin National Park (from Dziwnów we are already on the island) and take the stairs up.
There is a vantage point at the top - it used to be to the beach, now the trees have grown up. At the very top, there are several commemorative plaques and stairs (about 300) leading to the beach. Passing people from the opposite direction, we are glad that we were going to the beach. The city, therefore, a lot of walkers. A moment and we join them. Oh, but here it blows specifically.
There are a lot of fryers and some stalls next to the beach, sorry, but this place is definitely not a showcase of the city. Then there are only hotels "ąę" and a bit crowded - when it is here in summer it is scary to think.
We find a few other interesting places. The first is a hotel ship, which moored right at the beginning of the Szczecin Lagoon on its way to Lubin. An interesting idea - just a decent parking lot here would come in handy. There is a bunker-museum nearby.
Lubin is a small village at the end of the road. Small, but with attractions. You can approach the lagoon or visit the fortified settlement and look at it from above (they will delete 3.5). In front of the church there is a tree with a circumference of only 760 cm.
Turning left behind the church, we hit the jackpot. There is a large paved car park good for an overnight stay. Next, there is a path to the Zielonka Hill. In 5 minutes and 100 steps we get to the place of a wonderful panorama of the lagoon and the surrounding area.
We return from 3 km to reach Wapienica to the Turquoise Lake. Its bottom is over 18 meters lower than our sea. We leave the car in the parking lot (possible overnight) and we are at the lake in a minute. The area is well developed, benches, tables, there is also a pub and a playground for children. We were almost before dusk, so we did not go along the path over the Zielonka Hill, or to the rocket launcher, although it was not far away.
We visit Wolin after dark, as if on our arrival the market square is illuminated with Christmas illuminations. Now, only traditionally we include all possible villages with GPS and we finish the loop.
SZCZECIN - GOLENIÓW - POMERANIAN STONE
ROUTE 85 km
In the morning, two of them came by - I think it's time to get up.
Today another loop, this time more southern. We take Szczecin as the wallpaper. We start our walk from the Cathedral, the tallest church in Poland after Licheń. There is an observation tower, but after November 11 you have to make an appointment in advance. The organ is a curiosity. Nearby is the white castle of the Pomeranian Dukes, all in their Christmas glory. A bit unusual, both in shape and with two courtyards. Along the coast, we reach Wały Chrobrego, which is about a 500m terrace. Finally, the colors of the area are slowly changing. There are several houses with interesting facades along the waterfront. A tiny Christmas tree has also grown in front of the Maritime School. We still wander the streets and return to the parking lot.
40 km to the north lies the small Goleniów - a town partially surrounded by defensive walls located on the Ina River.
Kamień Pomorski is another 30 km away. There is a Cathedral, a slightly neglected church and a small square 200m away, from which a path leads to the promenade over the lagoon. There is quite a large parking lot at the height of the church above the lagoon - you could probably spend the night here if we were a camper van.
POBIEROWO - ŚWIERZNO - STUCHOWO - GRYFICE - TRZYGŁÓW - FENCES - TRZEBIATÓW - POGORZELICA - NIECHORZE - REVAL - TRZĘSAC
ROUTE 115 km
You can see that Pobierowo is definitely a bigger tourist destination. Room rentals on every corner - just why no one answered the phone - probably only seasonally. When we went down to the beach, we were attacked by a red-haired ponytail - well now, when there are no people, she can feel at ease.
Today in the morning (9) even a frost bite my nose, now it still hangs in the sand.
Świerzno offers a historic bolted church from the 17th century - a hit and a hunting manor - missed.
At the western end of the village of Stuchowo, we can find a beautiful palace of the von Plötz family, surrounded by a park (someone was here in summer ??). We were not allowed to see the interiors.
You can enter the old town in Gryfice through the gate, and then make a round of walking or car, leaving it exactly in the same place.
In the meantime, you can get colorful dizziness on the market :)
In Trzygłów, between the First and Second Lakes, there was a palace from the 19th century in the possession of the von Thadden family. On one side, there is a no-entry road on the gate, while on the “left” there is an access road. The square is big - I don't know what's inside because even Mr. Google is bad at it
In Płoty, we found a new castle surrounded by a park. The castle is traditionally closed
Trzebiatów is quite an old town - with municipal rights already in the 13th century. There is a town hall in the market square with an internal courtyard.
The tower of the Church of the Motherhood of the Blessed Virgin Mary, 90 m high, used to be a lighthouse. Currently, it houses an observation deck.
The Powder Tower and 2.5 km walls, the place was very useful in the Middle Ages because the city was quite "aggressive" :)
Then it's just the sea and the sea - well, maybe not really :)
The sun finally came out in Niechorze. At the Liwia Duży Lake - there is a parking lot next to the school. Paid in the season, but outside of it, quite an interesting place to stop.
Near the lighthouse in Niechorze, the Lighthouse Miniature Park was established.
Along the quay there is a path leading to the lighthouse.
Rewal is tourism - a town with strictly built-up buildings (narrow streets) - a promenade - an observation deck and Calvary - one of the few that are open.
Trzęsacz - there is a palace (hotel) with a park, a church in front of it - I just remembered that it is worth seeing the church there, but I forgot that it was about the ruins by the sea…. ehh this my sclerosis….
The descent to the beach in Pustków ends our today's loop.
Just an evening walk to the promenade - such a tiny town (123 inhabitants) and so varied during the Christmas season. At the Baltic Cross of Hope, which is a copy of the cross from Giewont - there is a nativity scene - and the streets sparkle with colorful lights. HAPPY HAPPY NEW YEAR :)
