In terms of tourism, the area around Słupsk is one of the most interesting regions in Poland. Both Słupsk – a seven-hundred-year-old town, and other fascinating sites, combined with the vicinity of the sea, make it an increasingly-common popular destination for tourists.


Słupsk lies a short distance from the sea, and the sit on which it was founded is a crossing of the Słupia with an ancient route going from west to east along the the Baltic Sea coast. The town, population one hundred thousand, nurtures its historic sites, and especially the local Castle of the Dukes. It also makes every effort to foster local culinary traditions, and to be a significant cultural hub. It hosts music and theatre festivals and artistes’ meetings, and it has its own fair and sporting events. Having at its disposal the largest collection of Witkacy’s work in the world, the oldest operating lift in Europe, and a leaning tower, the Capital of the Słupsk Land has a good reason to advertise itself with the slogan, “Słupsk – more than you think”.

The Capital is matched by the entire region. Its greatest attractions (besides the beautiful Baltic beaches) are the shifting sands near Łeba, called “the Pomeranian desert” and the Checkered-House Land – the area of characteristic rural architecture connected with the Slovincian culture, once inhabiting this place. No less great are the water courses and hydrotechnical monuments of the Słupsk Land. Cutting through stunning landscapes and areas of protected nature, the canoe trails deliver not only experience of invigorating contact with nature, but also to learning about many interesting solutions used in water management and ways to obtain renewable energy from the force of the flowing river waters.

The Słupsk land is a place of diversity, as well as activities, culture, and water tourism. Its untouched nature and well-preserved historic buildings, great beaches and wonderful local cuisine  make it the dream holiday destination .
