Olsztyn is far from the hustle and bustle, which can be a huge advantage for people who treasure beautiful but quiet places. Although it is a big city (almost 200,000 inhabitants) and the capital of the Warmian-Masurian Voivodeship, thanks to a dozen lakes located within its boundaries, numerous forests and parks, Olsztyn is an ideal place to relax. There is a beautiful castle, which was defended by Nicolaus Copernicus (did you know that this famous astronomer was into military engineering?), and a majestic Gothic cathedral. You will learn more about these places in part of our guide titled ‘Olsztyn’.
You will be surprised to find out that there are countless interesting places around Olsztyn. You can visit them on your one-day trips.
