It has 6 thousand inhabitants and is located on the biggest Polish island, Wolin, at the edge of the Woliński National Park. It is famous for beautiful sandy beaches and steep cliffs that fall into the sea. The wooden, nineteenth-century spa buildings lend a lot of charm to the town, as does the beautiful vegetation, among others yew trees known as “the Prince’s Guards”, “Storrada” oak-tree and the monumental “Bolko” and “Rogalinda” oak-trees, or an ash-tree called “the Giant”.
The spa takes advantage of abundant springs of saline waters (zdrój) - and the town owes its name to these waters. One of the town’s attractions is the “alley of stars” with the imprints of famous persons’ hand. The town borders the Wolin National Park with the total area of 4,700 ha. Tourists are welcome to see steep cliffs destroyed gradually by the sea.
