Kolberg

Kołobrzeg is one of the oldest towns in Pomerania and is the largest resort in Poland. The city lies at the mouth of the Parsęta river to the Baltic Sea—in the northern part of the West Pomeranian Province.
Tourism is one of the most important aspects of Kołobrzeg, which supports the very strong position of the tourist sector in the city’s economy. Kolobrzeg is a city of European significance.

Tourists—mostly from Scandinavian countries and Western Europe—are attracted by the beautiful, sandy beach, modern treatment base, high-class hotels and apartments with exceptional European standards. 

Kołobrzeg is also a regional cultural center. 

For two years, the program, "Kolobrzeg City of Culture" has been implemented. It has been used to establish the vision of the city: Kołobrzeg: Seaside Resort—City of Culture. The Regional Cultural Center provides year-round attractions for residents and tourists such as jazz concerts, showings of alternative movies, theater performances for children and adults, as well as many others attractions.

High-class monuments are another major attraction for Kołobrzeg. The most valuable examples of Gothic architecture in the city are St. Mary's Church and the Fuse Tower (now known as the Gunpowder Tower). Neo-gothic architecture is primarily seen on the town hall, the edifice of the main post office and the rectoral church. After a healthy walk along the coastal paths and getting a cultural experience  and architectural taste of the city, a wide range of restaurants  await the hungry and culninary estatic guests, which serve traditional Polish, Italian, French or international dishes. For lovers of traditional food, grilled or fried fish straight from the sea is always a popular option. Fried food stands and "fishbars" by the sea are also readily available. 

The unquestionable advantage of the city is a natural swamp, water ecosystem, and forest, where there are unique plant species. NATURA 2000 possesses particularly valuable natural areas (with characteristics flora and fauna). A large part of the city is located within "the Koszalin Coastline." For bicycle enthusiasts, a newly built bike path—which measures 50 km from D?wirzyno, through Kolobrzeg, up to Ustronie Morskie—is available within the Ecopark and entire coastline.

The city has 109 sports facilities, most of which are swimming pools (23), sports fields (12), sports halls (16). For recreational sports, Kołobrzegboasts many biking, hiking and canoeing trails, which weave throughout the city. Kolobrzeg has dozens of accommodation and recreational facilities. In the area of Kolobrzeg, there are numerous sport clubs for children, youth and adults. Sports in Kolobrzeg are maintained at a high level. Our basketball team— Kotwica (Anchor)—has achieved great success in the Polish premier league.

It is also worth mentioning that Ko?obrzeg—due to a very wide range of hotel and sport offers—will host a Danish football team at Euro 2012. 

As a resort, center for culture, and government-protected environmental and green area, as well as a place for entrepreneurship and investment, education, sport and a civil society, Ko?obrzeg is a rapidly growing city.

We invite you to Kolobrzeg—the Pearl of the Baltic Sea!
