A wealth of landscapes and a rich variety of natural and anthropogenic values are the greatest assets of the Pomerania region of Poland. The region is a perfect vacation destination for families and couples in love.


Endless beaches and the clean, emerald sea play with the sun, delivering a unique and unforgettable spectacle. Dunes on white beaches and amber, the gold of Poland, are the hallmarks of the Baltic coast. The beauty of Pomerania is like no other place in the world and has earned the region's natural assets a place on the UNESCO list of world heritage.



The spa values and the special microclimate of the region help visitors recharge their batteries and forget about the hardships of everyday life. Small ports on the Baltic coast are a popular destination with anglers and those who like expeditions on sea-going fishing cutters.

The Hel Peninsula is a place of special interest for its natural and scenic values, unique in that it was formed by sea currents carrying sand from the bottom of the sea. The exceptional location of the cities of Gdańsk, Sopot and Gdynia, commonly known as the Tricity, makes them a unique European phenomenon. This year, the publisher of the Dorling Kindersley Eyewitness Travel has named Gdańsk one of the 10 greatest tourist cities in the world.

The Polish coast also attracts visitors with its remarkable tourist trails. The European Route of Brick Gothic takes tourists on a journey through the complex history of the Dukes of Pomerania, whose former splendor and fascinating past are recorded in the monumental buildings along the route.

What also attracts tourists from across the world to Pomerania is a wealth of entertainment and cultural events. Some of the most important ones include the Open'er Festival and the Sailing Ships Parade in Gdynia, the House of Griffins Fair in Słupsk, the Fireworks Festival in Ustka, and the festivals Sopot Top Trendy and Sopot Festival featuring international pop music stars.
