West Pomerania

County: Zachodniopomorskie

The beach at Jarosławiec


Poland’s northern border is primarily a border with the sea, namely the 524 km long coastline along the Baltic Sea.
In the coastal areas there is a favorable microclimate, characterized by many hours of sunshine and the considerable humidity in the air, which also has a healing content of iodine. Extensive forest areas and the absence of major industrial companies ensure a clean air in the area. Favorable ocean currents still bring new building material to the long sandy beaches.
From the coast and 200 km inland you will find a varied landscape, consisting of lakes, created after the ice age, rivers, forests and hills.
The land area of Poland, located on the Baltic Sea coast – on the stretch from the western border of Poland on the Odra River and to the border with Russia – is called Pomerania, in Polish: Pomorze, which means the land by the sea. Pomorzanie was the name of the largest of the Slavic tribes that originally populated this area.
Historically, the designation of Pomerania encompassed the land that lay along the Baltic coast from Rostock to Gdańsk. east of Gdańsk and the river Wisła lay Prusy, inhabited by a Baltic speaking people. It is said that the southern border of earliest Pomerania passed along the rivers Notec and Warta, but for most of the Middle Ages and later the boundaries of Pomorze Szczecińskie (western Pomerania) and Pomorze Gdańskie (eastern Pomerania) were somewhat further north.
Today, Pomerania is divided into West Pomerania with Szczecin as the main city and East Pomerania with Gdańsk as the main city.

Cities in West Pomerania

Almost all Pomeranian cities have a very ancient history. The oldest of them are of Slavic origin. Some have arisen in connection with princely castles, fortresses belonging to the Crusaders, chivalry castles, royal castles or monasteries. Among them we find fishing villages as well as market towns and among the youngest coastal towns that have arisen as a result of an increasing interest in the healing qualities of water and air.
