Location and history

The municipality of Dziwnów is located on the coast surrounded by water on both sides: to the north the Baltic, to the south Kamień Fjord. The western part of the municipality is located on the island of Wolin. The nearest major city is Kamień Pomorski. – Localities in the municipality: Dziwnów (main town), Międzywodzie, Dziwnówek and Łukęcin.- Already in 1243, Dziwnów was mentioned for the first time in the documents, the site being on the trade route connecting the Szczecin fjord with the Baltic Sea. Since, that is, until the 19th century, the area's small towns were mainly fishing villages. Amber processing also occurred to a considerable extent. From about 1820’the fishing villages (first Dziwnów and Dziwnówek) developed into seaside resorts.
