Słowiński National Park is a national park in Pomeranian Voivodeship, northern Poland. It is situated on the Baltic coast, between Łeba and Rowy. The northern boundary of the park consists of 32.5km of coastline.HistoryThe original idea of creating a preserve here came out in 1946, at a conference in Łeba with scientists from Poznań and Gdańsk. The park, however, was created 21 years later, in 1967, on an area of 180.69sqkm. Today it is slightly larger, covering 186.18km2, of which 102.13sqkm consists of waters and 45.99sqkm of forests. The strictly preserved zone covers 56.19sqkm. In 1977 UNESCO designated the park a biosphere reserve under its Programme on Man and the Biosphere (MaB). The Słowiński wetlands were designated a Ramsar site in 1995.The park is named after the Slavic (later Germanized) people known as the Slovincians (Słowińcy), who used to live in this swampy, inaccessible area at the edge of Lake Leba. In the village of Kluki there is an open-air museum presenting aspects of this people's former life and culture.

  • Beautiful and surreal. I wholeheartedly recommend anyone who is nearby to see this place. Get here by bike or taxi. Bring water.
  • Nice park to visit with desert views before the Baltic Sea.
  • Beautiful sandy landscape of Poland in the close vicinity of forests and Baltic sea.
  • If you are in Poland BALTIC SEE IS A MUST!! For real. Forget about all small towns ( visit Warsaw, Cracow and Wrocław) and go to the see side
  • place worth to visit..recommendation: go there out of summer season ideally during the work week (otherwise full of tourists)..
