KASHUBIAN LAKE DISTRICT
Those traveling through the Kashubian land are struck by the extraordinary wealth of landscapes.
If you believe the old legend, it came from the fact that God started creating Kashubia at the very end.
And because he had a lot of "building material" left from various lands that he had completed earlier, he threw it all on the Kashubian soil - and so it has remained to this day.
In contrast to the northern Kashubian coastal belt, the Kashubian Lake District is a land of forests, lakes and picturesque moraine hills.
The largest lakes: Wdzydze, called the Kashubian Sea, and Charzykowskie Lake located in the south, experience a veritable siege of holidaymakers in the summer.
Particularly noteworthy is a series of fourteen ribbon lakes connected by the Radunia River (water sports enthusiasts claim that there is no more wonderful kayaking trail in Poland). This so-called Kółko Raduńskie lies in the heart of the Kashubian Switzerland - the most beautiful part of the Lake District, where relative heights reach 170 m, rivers flow rapidly, sheep and cows graze on steep meadows, and roads wind serpentines, like in the mountains. The capital of this picturesque land was founded in the 14th century by French monks in Kartuzy.
To the south-east of the city, there are the Szymbarskie Hills, which rise to 329 m. asl Wieżyca. As befits the highest peak of the European Plain, the hill has a huge observation tower from which you can admire the panorama of the area. In winter, skiers ski on the slopes of Wieżyca
