Kołobrzeg is one of Poland’s oldest cities. It is located in the north-central part of the Westpomeranian Region, by the Baltic Sea, at the Parsęta River mouth. It is one of the largest seaside resorts on the Baltic Sea. Being a port and a health resort at the same time, this Westpomeranian city with a long history at present exhibits only sparse remnants of its fortification walls and forts surviving from the sea fortress it was well into the 19th Century.
The modern-day Kołobrzeg is referred to as the „Baltic Pearl” for a reason. It is the most scenic Polish resort, whose reputation extends back 200 years. The city’s history has always been intertwined with salt. At first it was production, then, when the salt works in Kołobrzeg were closed, the city started to use its salt deposits for curative purposes. The year 1830 saw the establishment of its first saline-bath facility, marking the beginning of Kołobrzeg’s tradition as a health resort.
Today it is the largest resort of its kind in Poland. That is why it is a perfect destination for those who do not want to be cut off from urban entertainment completely. People visit Kołobrzeg both to revitalise themselves and repose – here, holidays are all the year round. A stroll through the city is but an adventure with history, and a great pleasure, too. The city, apart from its advanced sanatoriums, pampers visitors with the organisation of concerts, a theatre, a cinema, a museum, a gallery, an aqua park, sport facilities and stadiums, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, and an ice-rink! When looking for respite from the turmoil of the streets, visitors can take a walk along the boardwalk, repose on the beach, take advantage of walking and bicycle trails, enjoy the splendour of sea fishing or try to catch a silvery bull trout in the Parsęta’s currents.
Each year the city can observe growing interest in water sports and diving in search of old shipwrecks. Gaining in popularity are also pleasure flights, paragliding, and horse riding. Another attraction is a 6-kilometre bicycle path with sand dunes and a beach on one side, and an Eco-Park with numerous water-bird and plant species on the other. This amazing combination of landscapes creates perfect conditions for active leisure.
The city’s gentle maritime climate, coupled with brisk winds, rich in iodine and ozone, have a positive influence on the respiratory tract, while also boosting immunity, particularly in children who have been treated here, i.a., for asthma and allergies, for over 60 years. This microclimate and location in a protected-landscape strip of land, combined with some cutting-edge physical therapies, facilitate the successful treatment of the majority of dysfunctions.
Kołobrzeg’s treasure trove – white and black gold – is saline and therapeutic peat. They help to remedy rheumatic diseases, pain, locomotor system inflammation, circulatory system disorders, digestive system ailments, female reproductive system diseases, and also beauty treatments which help to tone the skin, giving it a healthy glow.
All this adds to the impressive therapeutic profile of the Kołobrzeg Health Resort.
