About the region
The tourism potential of the region arises from its vast forests and lakes, offering a close and direct contact with nature, and a wide selection of options for active leisure, including scuba-diving, sailing and kayak trips, particularly on the Myśla and Oder rivers. For hiking enthusiasts, several dozen well-marked trails have been prepared. An interesting way of sightseeing and getting to know the area are the field games.
An important element of the history of the region, which dates back to early Middle Ages, were the military and monastic orders, such as the Templars, the Knights Hospitaller, the Teutonic Knights, and also the Dominican and Cistercian monks. The orders built castles, monasteries and churches, some of which have survived to this day and are used for various purposes, for instance as culture centres or offices.
