Augustow channel probably is the most popular spot in town and in whole region of Poland. It was dug at the first half of 19th century. It connected river-basins of Nemunas and Vistula. The length of Augustow channel is 101,2 kilometres, about 20 kilometres are in Belarusian side. The popularity of channel is increased due to very nice landscape views, waters (lakes, rivers), old unique constructions of water - level changing constructions.

It is possible that Augustow channel in future could be inscribed into UNESCO World heritage list.
