Land of 44 Islands – Baltic sea side and Szczeciński Lagoon

Land of 44 Islands is located in the north-west part of Poland, in the Zachodniopomorskie Region. Świnoujście and around the Szczecinski Lagoon is an amazing paradise for cyclists – travelers. The cross-border location of Świnoujście, an exceptionally developed network of bicycle paths on the Polish and German side of the border gives the possibility of countless cycling trips in a relatively small area in a unique nature. The attractive starting point of Świnoujście allows not only to enjoy the charms of the seaside promenades, but also to explore the islands on which it is located and which are adjacent to it: Wolin, Uznam and Karsibór. These are the largest, and among them many smaller, which gives the region the name of the Land of 44 Islands.

One of the routes also leads to German seaside promenades and to imperial resorts and spas. The second part of the stay is a trip along the Szczecin Lagoon, a total of about 100 km trail through the Wolin Island, and on it: Międzyzdroje, Wolin and Wolin National Park.
