    One of the boat trips, and the one I took, and as the name suggests, takes you to Cormorants' Island, where you can observe a large amount of cormorants in a small area.

    If you read the guidebooks it will tell you that Gizycko was flattened during WW2 and there is nothing there but grey architecture. As I discovered there are some flamboyant and unusual houses along side the Luczanski Canal.

    One of the unusual features in Gizycko is the swing bridge that spans the Luczanski Canal. When it was first constructed in the 1850’s it had 2 arms but accident caused them to collapse in 1859. The bridge was reconstructed in 1889 using a single arm 20m long and with its gears mechanism one person could operate it. In the 1960’s the bridge was modernised and an electric motor added, this proved to be a disaster with the bridge hitting the bank with too greater force. A temporary bridge replaced it but it was not liked and in 1993 a single arm swing bridge returned the same as the one from 1889. The bridge is unique and is one of only a few in Europe.

    If your visit Gizycko your must try a boat trip on the lakes. There are a number of different companies offering cruises on the lakes. I took one to Cormorants' Island that was non stop and took three and a half hours with a lunch available onboard, fish of course. The boats go from the main promenade.

    Favorite thing: This is a very romantic place. The most beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Go there with someone who you love - and this will be an unforgotten memory. But for singles this is too very nice place :)

    Fondest memory: It`s very nice place for spending the time. The nature here is great.
