If the Land of 44 Islands sounds like an appealingly mythical place, more the stuff of legends than a travel destination, then a visit to its namesake––the city of Świnoujście––will not disappoint. Part of its allure is its unique geographical position, built across a forested archipelago on the Baltic Sea.
Stretching from the Szczecin Lagoon to the Bay of Pomerania, Świnoujście reveals its multifaceted personality as you move between the three inhabited islands––which is all part of its bewitching charm. Home to a majority of the population, Uznam Island boasts relaxing beaches and resorts famed for their spa and wellness services.
Sprawling Wolin Island is Świnoujście’s transport hub, where rail passengers arrive and ferries glide in from Germany and Sweden. Anglers, nature lovers and water sports enthusiasts flock to tranquil Karsibór, whose beloved bird sanctuary is home to an impressive number of rare species. Whether you’re in the mood for an action-packed weekend or a few days of rejuvenation, you’ll find plenty of things to do in Świnoujście.
