Nicknamed “The Pearl of the Baltic”, Miedzyzdroje is a seaside resort town on Wolin Island, which lies on Poland’s north-west Baltic coast. It’s a popular tourist destination due to its wide beaches and family-friendly attractions and is on the doorstep of Wolin National Park and its bison reserve.
Things to do in Międzyzdroje
You can spend your days relaxing on the sandy beach that stretches the entire length of Miedzyzdroje or stroll along the 395-metre-long pier that cuts into the Baltic Sea in its middle. At the town end of the pier is an open-air amphitheatre where live concerts are regularly held and the Oceanarium Miedzyzdroje, which also houses marine species from across the globe.
While in Miedzyzdroje, you can embark on a whirlwind journey around the region at the Baltic Miniature Park where iconic landmarks from Poland, Germany, Russia, Sweden and Lithuania are recreated on a 1:25 scale. See a replica of the bridge that connects Denmark and Sweden and get up close to the Helsinki Cathedral, as well as Poland’s 13th-century Malbork Castle.
Sprawling on the edge of Miedzyzdroje is Wolin National Park, a scenic area of turquoise lakes, coastal cliffs and dense forest that provides habitat for a diversity of birds. You can stretch your legs along one of the well-marked trails that wind through the wooded hills or visit the small bison reserve. It protects a re-introduced population after the last wild bison were wiped out in the 14th century.
