  • Place the off-season a little boring, but by a somewhat mysterious romantic. Very pleasant to stroll through the landscaped Boulevard between bridges.

  • "The friendliest city in Poland", he writes and speaks of Augustów. I've been there several times, once with the guys we, today with the family, and it is always nice! Everyone will find something for themselves, some will find peace in the midst of beautiful nature, others will find the event to late morning:) The city is well cared for, supported and friendly to tourists. I highly recommend!

  • I consider the Lakes of this region one of the most beautiful places in Europe the only down side is the weather which was already influenced by the northern European area varies greatly. For example in July you can find 30° as 14 degrees which is just happened to us. Rain, Sun and clouds could happen multiple times in the same day. There are many activities you can do on the lakes from skiing and highly recommend renting a bike and go for tours in guided tours in the forests
