The Masurian Lakeland
The beautiful Masurian Lake District is located in the northeast of Poland and consists of several visually stunning lakes. There are two in particular that stand out in terms of size which are ‘Śniardwy’ and ‘Lake Mamry’. One of the most exciting attractions in this area are the ruins that lie between the hills. With a NOVASOL holiday cottage in Poland you will be able to explore this and much more from an ideal starting point. The size of the Masurian Lake District is very impressive. It covers an area of approximately 1,700 square kilometers. There are many attractions and a wide range of activities here such as numerous swimming areas, fishing and bike paths or trips through the beautiful countryside. For those who like something a bit more extreme it is possible to go on kayak and canoe tours. There are also many boat docks here. This Lake District is simply perfect for almost all water sports. Another exciting thing to see here are all the small wild horses that run around. These are specially bred here and then set free to roam the woods and fields of the wilderness, while still being kept track of and controlled. Go on a trip to the woods while staying in your NOVASOL holiday cottage in Poland and maybe you will see some of these wild horses. When it comes to food you will find many local and traditional dishes. ‘Bigos’ is the Polish national dish and is highly recommended. It consists of sauerkraut; cabbage and various meats mixed together to form a tasty stew. There are also other dishes that we recommend for you to taste such as ‘Pierogi’, ‘Barszcz’, ‘Zurek’, ‘Zrazy’ or ‘Flaki’. The Polish cuisine also offers sweets such as ‘Obwerzanek’ which is a ring-shaped pastry. Their cheese cake with chocolate icing is delicious and should absolutely be tried at least once as well, maybe with a nice cup of hot coffee or cocoa. You should visit the Masurian Lake District because it really is something special with its many lakes and rivers. This is a great place to experience nature with the whole family or friends.
