On July 14, 2004,
the longest seaside
bike path in Poland was commissioned.
The path extends from Kolobrzeg to Podczele.
It provides unique views of woods, beaches, swamps,
impenetrable thickets, bird nesting grounds, and more.
The path has been financed by the European Union.
An international airport was to be built 7 kilometres away from Kolobrzeg.
due to the protests of the local population,
the project may never see the light of day.
When You are in Kołobrzeg, You have plenty to see.
1. First is a faymous lighthouse located in the postage.
2. Then You can go and see a monument called "Monument to nuptials" (in polish "Pomnik zaślubin"). This monument was put, when the Polish regained Kołobrzeg after World War II. After World War II a soldier threw a ring in to the see, and he said ("I am vowing to you...)" :] and now we are all married with Baltic sea and we'll never leave it :]

This river which flows through the town out to Baltic Sea
the Parseta river on the south coast of the Baltic Sea
(in the middle of the section divided by the Oder and Vistula rivers).
Parseta is a river in north-western Poland,
a tributary of the Baltic Sea, with a length of 132 kilometres
and the basin area of 3,151 km?.
Just stroll along by the port along the end of the port railway
and see people fishing in the Parseta river which runs out to sea and the fishing
fleet. Maybe even a naval ship like a minesweeper.
I traveled from St.Petersburg with my Russian girlfriend who I had
know since 1989 as she needed to wait for her Swedish visa,
and Poland was still visa free then for Russians. We travelled from
Gdansk then to Sopot, Gydinia, Koszalin, Kolobrzeg, Sczetin
We spent a wonderful day in Kolobrzeg and we were staying in
Koselin in the youth hostel there.
Cordial welcome to beautiful Kolobrzeg, one of the oldest Polish cities, situated at mouth of river Parseta. Kolobrzeg is the biggest harbour of Polish Baltic coast between Swinoujscie and Gdynia. Town with 50.000 inhabitants is a favorite holiday spot, known spa and the main harbour of Polish Baltic fishing fleet. Yachtsmen are invited to Yacht Harbour situated on North end of Wyspa ( Island ) Solna. On this spot in XVIII century were built fortifications: fort Ujscie and redoubt Morast. They were NE heads of fortress Kolobrzeg. Today it is yacht harbour and tavern frequented by sailing community.
YH is situated in the center of the town on island Solna, next to mouth of Parseta river. Basin is a secure, sheltered place for yachts. Yacht Harbour basins ( Jachtowy and Lodziowy ) are prepared to accommodate ca 50 yachts. In case of expected arrival of more yachts there is possibility to prepare additional mooring spaces. Yachts with a draught of 3 m ( 9 ft ) and centreboard yachts can moor in Boat Basin ( Lodziowy ). Yachts with bigger draught moor on outside quay ( Nabrzeze Szkolne - School Berth ) where depth is 5.5 m ( 18 ft ).
Within Yacht Harbour grounds there is a historic fort with a tavern and catering points.
Gothic church from XIV cent. Inside you can watch leaning columns. What is interesting is 4m high chandelier from XIV cent
In the 18th and 19th c. Kolobrzeg was a strong fortress (which was besieged by Napoleon troops in 1807).
I guess I will not be particularly original if I say that it is the sandy beach that attracts most visitors. I am no exception to the rule.
