Beach and forests, many attractions around with good hotels and spa. Close to Warsaw, so I can get there after work.

If you are not a sailor or do not like water scooters there is no point to go there. Water too cold to swim, no beaches. No walking routes around the lake. No bars or restaurants. It is not really wild and not civilized at...More
