#1 of 15 in Nature in Northern Poland
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.

  • Arrived around noon at the entrance of Rabka we had no trouble finding parking that is paid by the hour at the exit, the entrance to the Park, go to a speaker later (they do not take credit card) where nearby is also possible to rent bicycles or catch a shuttle with electric motor. We opted to walk using the route that passes in the forest at the foot of the dunes are about 5.5 Km arrived at the dunes we found another case where you can pay your parking bicycle rental outlets and a panorama great, seemed to be really into the wilderness (here Rommel has tested the materials of the Africa Corps), fine sands and beautiful landscape. For the way back we skirted the sea walking on the beach, it was a grueling experience, but it was all worth it. Note that if you want to go to the beach you don't have to take the bike as it would be too difficult to use and I'm not sure that we can carry on the dunes before reaching the sea. If you want to do the full tour, as we did, are about 12 Km.

  • The idea for the surprise. Słowiński National Park is a unique blend of these treasures of nature like the sea, desert, forest, Lake ... beautiful landscapes, with which the relationship during the trip to the beach. You can visit there in the afternoon (there is less people), go through the Park and come back, and in the evening, you can catch the sunset,

  • Definitely worth a visit to the Słowiński National Park, sand dunes are beautiful, with these amazing views. Dunes doszłyśmy hiking trail from. The road is quite pleasant, because through the forest, unfortunately people and meleksów is so much that at times receives it. Back in the dunes you can boat, which is an added attraction. The big downside is incredibly expensive parking in front of the Park.

  • Beautiful beach and sand dunes We really enjoyed the sand dunes and the beautiful beaches with nice white sand. The views were amazing! We also liked the walk through the forest - the walking distance is about 5 km, but it's worth it. There were also some electrical cars that you can take up to the dunes, but we prefered to walk. There are some places on the way from where you can buy some food and drinks.
  • Nice place for bike ride. I recommend this area during off season
  • Best park in Poland. Super for walking. Very looong park. Must pay for parking and entry. Amazing beaches and desert
  • I was surprised to felt so amazed by sand. Fine-grained sand! Being able to see sand into the horizon, was great. My top two Poland-experience
  • The walk REALLY is 2h, but count 2.5h in case you make short breaks (toilet or food). Worth the walk. On the way there (or back) you can rent these go-kart vehicles for a decent price. The views were beautiful even though we had not-sp-perfect weather. Well worth the walk!
