Poland's territory extends across several geographical regions, between latitudes 49° and 55° N, and longitudes 14° and 25° E. In the north-west is the Baltic seacoast, which extends from the Bay of Pomerania to the Gulf of Gdańsk. This coast is marked by several spits, coastal lakes (former bays that have been cut off from the sea), and dunes. The largely straight coastline is indented by the Szczecin Lagoon, the Bay of Puck, and the Vistula Lagoon. The centre and parts of the north lie within the North European Plain.
Rising above these lowlands is a geographical region comprising the four hilly districts of moraines and moraine-dammed lakes formed during and after the Pleistocene ice age. These lake districts are the Pomeranian Lake District, the Greater Polish Lake District, the Kashubian Lake District, and the Masurian Lake District. The Masurian Lake District is the largest of the four and covers much of north-eastern Poland. The lake districts form part of the Baltic Ridge, a series of moraine belts along the southern shore of the Baltic Sea.
Where to go if you dream of outdoor recreation?
In Poland, you will find many places that are ideally suited to spend time in a peaceful and quiet atmosphere. Most often affects the local climate and the lack of many tourists in this area. In which the Polish side should you choose if you want to spend your holidays in nature? The answer to this question is not simple. Many attractive tourist regions is visited by crowds of tourists and this means that we have less and less contact with the located there flora and fauna. Therefore, we plan a vacation outside the tourist season then Gorce, Tatry and around Biebrza will certainly be much more peaceful than if we would choose in this area, for example, in the summer.
Contact with nature in the Biebrza National Park
Biebrza National Park is an ideal place for tourists who want a nice way to spend time in nature. In this area because we have a lot to choose from various hiking trails, both pedestrians and bicycle or even canoe. Prepared trails here are very diverse and different distances and levels of difficulty trails cause that every tourist will find here an appropriate proposal for yourself. The Biebrza National Park, we can see not only the unique marshes, but also to meet many not found in any other region in the country specimens for both flora and fauna. The area itself particularly pleased marsh birds.
