The wind in your sails!
Those who have tried the sailing adventure on the Great Masurian Lakes will certainly return – again and again... Everyone appreciates the charm of Lake Sniardwy (114 sq km) with its eight islands and Lake Mamry (104 sq km) with its thirty-three islands, as well as the presence of dozens of other lakes linked by rivers and canals to form an extensive system of waterways (approx. 200 km in length). The lakes are surrounded by the "green sea" of the Piska Forest, which hosts a great number of tranquil little bays.
Sailors can stop at any of several dozen marinas, where they can find everything they might need. More and more wind-surfers are discovering the Masurian lakes. They also find excellent conditions at the Puck Bay and on the Baltic coastal waters near Leba.
The Szczecin Lagoon (952 Sq km) is a real paradise for those who enjoy the wind and the water. The Baltic Sea is close at hand. A sailing training centre is located at Trzebien, where future sailors are taught the art of sailing on both the rough sea and on the quieter waters of the lagoon. Sailing on the lagoon, one can easily reach the Island of Wolin, the former site of the Viking stronghold and the Slav sanctuary of their pagan god Swiatowid. At present a large part of the island forms the Wolinski National Park.
