Darlowo




Darlowo is situated in the north-east of Zachodniopomorskie Province in Koszalin area.
The northern border is a 3 mile long cost line with a wide, sandy beach and numerous dunes.
Darlowo is a town with rich history. Perhaps the most famous ruler who came from Darlowo, Erik of Pomerania, the King of Denmark, Norway and Sweden was born here in the fourteenth century.
The historic centre is not located directly on the Baltic shore, but on a island in Wieprza River, where the Dukes of Pomerania castle is also situated. As one of very few Polish towns, Darlowo had not suffered any damage in city infrastructure during the World War II and therefore we can find there many attractions for tourists who like history.
The XIV century castle, which is the best preserved defensive building in Pomerania, the fourteenth century Gothic St. Mary's Church where King Erik was buried, the fifteenth century churches of St. Gertrude and St. George, and almost the entire old town, where you can enjoy the traces of past and historical monuments are definitely huge Darlowo advantages.
Currently Darlowo offers variety of accommodation in fully suited guest houses and vast catering options.
