"The Land of a Thousand Lakes" Mazury by evaanna

Mazury Travel Guide: 66 reviews and 283 photos

Mazury is a picturesque region in the north-east of Poland. Its turbulent history, in the course of which it changed hands, loyalties and populations a number of times, is too complicated and full of controversy to delve into here.
Popularly called the Land of a Thousand Lakes, Mazury more than deserves this name. Dotted with thousands of postglacial lakes amidst beautiful undulating countryside and forest, it attracts tourists from all over Poland and abroad.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Lakes, forests, beautiful scenery, excellent for sailing, kayaking, biking
  • Cons:Touristy and noisy in summer, but not as crowded as the Polish seaside, and you can find many secluded places
  • In a nutshell:A traveller's haven
  • Last visit to Mazury: Jun 2009

    An excellent page full of good tips and photo's! Such a pretty area, and so much of interest, the Palace, Castle, the Canals are so pretty with the reflections, and picking the wild Strawberries & Blueberries...that would be fun and yummy!

    I did not know about this lake region, thanks it's a great tour. Those Crepes with blueberries and cream simply made me hungry.

    Beautifully decribed and even more gorgeously illustrated. I was just getting to like autumn, but those sunsoaked photos along the riverbank make me long for summer. An excellent page !

    I spent too long under a tree sheltering from the rain and ended up being bitten by a tick, I could have done with your advice.

    It sounds like you need the place to yourself to avoid the tourism. It is a wonderful setting. Thank you

    Such an interesting area to spend some time.....and the food references reminded me of good Polish friends in Sydney when I lived there, who made the best dinners I have ever had in my life!
