Slowinski National Park - Slowinski National Park on the Baltic Coast of Poland

More than 30 kilometers of coastline, rare animal species and shifting white-sand dunes like from another world will make you feel like being on a completely different continent. However, this and much more is what offers the Polish north

Slowinski National Park equals 32 kilometers of coastline situated in the north of Poland, when the land meets the Baltic Sea. What used to be a Baltic Sea bay has transformed into sand dunes thanks to the sea’s activity. The sand dunes today shape a terrific landscape of the national park.

Due to the wind, the dunes are shifting and slowly moving up to 10 metres per year, which reveals the fossils and remains of the vegetation once growing there. Interesting fact about the dunes is that some of them are reaching the respectable height of around 30 – 40 metres above the sea level.

The whole process of sand movement is caused by the wind blowing mostly from the west, translocating the sand material. The biggest movements due to the strongest wind activity and humidity is usually done during the winter period of the year.

This is represented by the lakes  Łebsko, Gardno and Dolgie Wielkie and multiple rivers crossing the area of the park.
