Kolobrzeg is for years, one of the most popular tourist destinations in Poland. However, seeing it only through the prism of a holiday resort is a gross oversimplification. Kolobrzeg is also a spa town full of sanatoriums, an urban center with a long history and a rich cultural offer.
What draws you to Kolobrzeg is, above all, the sea. Within the city limits there are three summer seaside resorts with wide, sandy beaches. Kolobrzeg is full of parks and greenery - the city is surrounded by almost 150 hectares of woodland. The wildness of the Slowinski Coast can be admired in Ekopark Kolobrzeski, an ecological refuge for flora and fauna. This is an ideal place for those who prefer active recreation.
The city functions as a health resort, famous for its mineral waters and peloid. Kolobrzeg has an excellent leisure infrastructure, symbolized by the Kolobrzeg pier, which is over 200 meters long, making it the longest reinforced concrete pier in Poland. The Lighthouse and the Jan Szymanski Boulevard are summer symbols of the town, always full of strollers and sunbathers. Kolobrzeg has a large hotel and catering base, full of rentals, souvenir stands, stores and boutiques. What distinguishes it from smaller, seasonal seaside towns is the full range of options and the large number of service points.
Kolobrzeg is one of the oldest settlements in Western Pomerania and in Poland as a whole - its origins date back to the 8th century. The city combines the medieval beginnings of the Polish State, the Hanseatic past, the shadow of the Napoleonic Wars and the history of Pomerania, as well as the dramatic fate of the 20th century, all of which can be seen in the city's architecture. Kolobrzeg was almost 90% destroyed in 1945, but thanks to the efforts of its inhabitants, many monuments have been rebuilt. These include the Old Town area - City Hall and Town Hall Square. Also noteworthy are the bourgeois palaces and townhouses, dating from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, the remains of the Kolobrzeg Fortress fortifications. The city is on the list of cities of the European Route of Brick Gothic. Gothic architecture can be admired by visiting St. Mary's Basilica or the Fuse Tower. Neo-Gothic influences can be seen in Kolobrzeg's Post Office and the Church of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary. In the city, crumbs of history are combined with modern, utilitarian architecture concentrating service and tourist points, accommodation, also offering attractive apartments and short-term rentals.
The peak tourist season in the city falls on July-August. This is when many events take place in Kolobrzeg. These include performances of popular cabaret artists, music concerts, regatta, sports competitions. Famous throughout Poland are events such as the festival of electronic music Sunrise or events referring to the legendary Festival of Soldier Songs and the military past of the city. Those who prefer quieter entertainment will find it without any problem. The city has a cinema, the Gallery of Modern Art, the Museum of Polish Arms, the City Museum and numerous educational facilities. The official slogan of the town is "Klimatyczny Kolobrzeg". Undoubtedly, it has a lot of truth in it!
