Borne Sulinowo

Borne Sulinowo is a town in Western Pomerania (North Western Poland) that “miraculously” appeared on the map of Poland in 1992. However, the city was not under some innovative and fast-moving construction program; indeed, there had been people living in Borne Sulinowo for decades. The reason for the city’s emergence was the declassification of a top-secret Soviet military base that had occupied the territory for approximately 50 years. In fact, the town did not exist according to documents, and it was not marked on maps – which showed roads that led only to the lake or ended unexpectedly in the forest.

Today Borne Sulinowo is a popular Polish town attracting many tourists. It is convenient for those who prefer more hidden and mysterious places, with quiet ambience and pleasant surroundings. Since 2004, the town has been hosting the International Gathering of Military Vehicles. Not far away from the town, you can visit these places: Polish, Russian and French POW camps. An atmosphere of mystery still exist here with the now desolate woods, magazines, and silos for long range rocket launchers.

While Borne Sulinowo has become a prosperous town with high tourist flow, Klomino is a hard-to-find place somewhere in the woods, being the only official ghost town in Poland.

Elblag Canal

Elblag Canal is situated in picturesque Warmian–Mazurian Voivodeship, and it is perfect for those who like sailing experience over dry land. Known also as Elblasko – Ostrodzki Canal (from the names of the cities it connects) it is a fascinating monument of hydro-technical art and a very specific place for visiting. There is only one similar spot in the entire world, Morris Canal in USA; however, it closed in 1924 and nothing but debris remains.

Elblag Canal is still worth visiting, though it has existed more than 150 years. Most of its structures still function and are used. Its length of 84,2 km makes the canal the longest sailing waterway in Poland. In 2007, it was chosen one of the seven wonders of the country.
