The Great Masurian Lakes are located in the north-eastern corner of Poland, close to the border with Russia. It includes the Masurian Lake District to the east and the Iława Lake District to the west. Administratively, Masuria is part of the Warmińsko-Mazurskie Voivodeship. Most of the towns and villages in Masuria are connected by rail, but the easiest way to get to us is by car or even by plane! Our land is equipped with an excellent tourist infrastructure: bustling ports and taverns and countless lakes connected by rivers and canals - all this makes our region one of the most attractive in Poland. Masuria covers a relatively vast area and it is difficult to visit it all from just one base. For example, the distance from Działdów to Giżycko is almost 200 kilometres. An attraction in Masuria are the preserved field quarters and bunkers of the former elite of the Third Reich (Mamerki). The sanctuary in Święta Lipka and the Boyen Fortress in Giżycko are also worth a visit. Masuria is the perfect place to take a break from the hustle of the city, work and responsibilities. It is a place to put your phone down and reconnect with nature, listen to the sounds of nature and be with your thoughts.

Masuria is said to be the land of a thousand lakes. People come here for the lakes and spending time on the water from far corners of Poland and the world. There are, however, a few more features that distinguish Masuria from other lands. - Lakes, lakes everywhere In Masuria, you will find almost 3,000 larger and smaller lakes, which together with rivers and canals cover more than 6% of the region's surface area. Each of them represents a different landscape and different stories of the people living in the area. You will appreciate the lakes not only if you are a fan of water sports - don't forget about walks, bike rides, good food.... - Witnesses to history and mysterious places from the Second World War Masuria is an ideal region for history explorers. The Teutonic and Prussian past of the land as a melting pot of many mixed cultures has left many interesting traces. The years of World War II turned Masuria into a command centre for the Third Reich in the most important campaign of that war - Operation Barbarossa. Add to this the mysterious sluices in the middle of the forest.... and we have a motive for long days of sightseeing. - Peace and quiet The Masurian towns and villages fill up with thousands of tourists during the summer season, but the land has the property that you can always spend time here in peace and quiet. If the people around you get too crowded, just hop on your bike and after a few minutes all you have in front of you is a lake shore, a forest and silence punctuated by birdsong. You will not lack lakes to relax in the bosom of nature - after all, there are almost 3,000 of them in Masuria. - Wild nature Much is said about lakes and water sports on them. But after all, a lake is not just water, it is also an ecosystem that is a grateful home to dozens of species of larger and smaller creatures. Storks, herons, cranes - in the Masuria Lake District they are at your fingertips, or rather.... or rather... binoculars, which you should always have with you. Masuria is home to as many as eight landscape parks and over 100 (!) nature reserves. - Masurian villages The Masuria region is not only pleasant to sail through, but also to travel through. The villages of Masuria, which you pass on your way, still manage to maintain their characteristic atmosphere, which is created by wooden houses (often cross-shaped), picturesque churches, lakes that appear "out of nowhere" and homogenous buildings without large hotels and pensions. Masuria can also be explored in the footsteps of villages abandoned after 1945.
