Poland - Warmia & Masuria (Chapter)
This is the Warmia & Masuria chapter from Lonely Planet’s Poland guidebook.
There’s something in the water in these two northeast regions bordering the Russian enclave of Kaliningrad – mostly hundreds of sailors, windsurfers and kayakers who come to make a splash in the Great Masurian Lakes that dominate the landscape.
- join the faithful throngs at Święta Lipka, a major place of Polish Catholic pilgrimage
- scramble around the Wolf’s Lair, Hitler’s secret wartime bunker
- restaurants & accommodation
- do a spot of cobblestone-surfing in Olsztyn’s Old Town
