A nature trip in the forests of the Kwidzyn Forest Inspectorate
The variety of habitats – from poor pine forests to fertile, dense deciduous forests, forest meadows, numerous lakes and streams – allows you to experience the power of nature of the Kwidzyn Forest Inspectorate and admire its richness. An unusual curiosity of the local forests are alleys and clusters of exotic trees, e.g. originating from North America – these are souvenirs of the experiments conducted a hundred years ago by foresters of that time.
Nature reserves, animal shelters, springs of rivers and streams are nurtured here so that future generations can also enjoy them. In the past, the local area was the background of many historical events – there is a route of Gothic castles (with the castle in Malbork at the forefront) and a Mennonite route, dedicated to the former owners of these areas. Among the forests you can come across lonely cemeteries, ruins of houses or forgotten parks. There are also many restored manor houses and reconstructed fruit orchards.
While hiking, you can come across not only majestic deer, wild boars or elk. Wolves have also settled in the forests of the Kwidzyn Forest Inspectorate for good, and the golden jackal has recently been observed. The fields around the forests are full of hares and pheasants, a partridge appears. Guides in this area, where an equally rich history emerges from the richness of nature, are local foresters – nature experts and lovers, but also history enthusiasts.

Marszewo Forest Botanical Garden in Gdynia
On the outskirts of Gdynia, in the immediate vicinity of the so-called Little Kaszuby Tricity We will find the Little Kashubian Tri-City in Marszewo, the center of the Gdańsk Forestry Inspectorate combining two functions – a botanical garden and an education center. The garden specializes in collections of forest plants, especially those native and related to the Pomorskie region. Among the dozen or so collections there is also an orchard of old varieties of fruit trees, a flower meadow and collections of medicinal and edible plants.
As part of the year-round educational center of the Gdansk Forest Inspectorate, free classes on education for sustainable development are conducted here, addressed to groups of all ages – from pre-schoolers, through school students, to seniors. The main idea of the classes is to show the diversity of forest communities, the principles of rational forest management, and above all, to encourage direct contact with nature. Classes are conducted by experienced forest educators.
With individual visitors of different ages in mind, two educational paths have been created in the publicly accessible forest part of the garden – “The Roots Trail” and “Alice’s Trail in the Enchanted Forest”. The first one is a path adapted for people with physical disabilities, but also for parents with small children in prams. A nearly two-kilometre-long paved path winds its way through serpentines to one of the moraine hills, and the educational boards located next to it introduce the issues of the world of plant roots and fungi, but also the history of forest use.
An additional attraction are wooden, partly underground houses – woodcutters, herbalists and roots and mushrooms. The second of the trails, “Alice’s Trail”, is dedicated to the youngest visitors. Climbing it to the top of the hill, you can move to the world on a macro scale to stand face to face with a giant lichen or a tick, but also go through the labyrinth of senses, with plants of various smells, shapes and textures, and feel like a giant in a microscale world .
