Holidays in Suwałki Region

Suwałki-Augustów Lakeland is an area where rather little money has been invested in tourism.Photo: S. Maciejewski However, during last few years its recreation base and services developed markedly. The most developed tourist and recreation base awaits tourists in the health resort Augustów, where visitors have at their disposal comfortable tourist centers, hotels, boarding houses and recreation facilities. On the lakes of Augustów and by the Augustów Canal, in Studzieniczna, Serwy, Płaska, Mikaszówka, it is not a problem to find a good tourist home offering tasty food. Every summer a total number of 300 000 people rest here. Although Suwałki Region is not so abound in tourist facilities, the tourist, recreation and gastronomic base develops gradually each year. It refers both to Suwałki and neighbouring holiday resorts like Gawrychruda with Płociczno, Stary Folwark and a bit far-away Smolniki, Becejły, Rutka -Tartak and Wiżajny where agrotourism has been developing successfully. Moreover two luxurious objects are accessible for all tourists. The first is the House of Creative Work and Rest of the Ministry of Culture and Art in Wigry. The other is "Szelment" on Lake Szelment Wielki.Photo: J. Borejszo In the region of Sejny agrotourism has not yet developed very well, concentreted mostly around and in Giby. It is not far away from here to Lake Pomorze where there are a few recreation centers in Posejnele and Zelwa and a comfortable boarding house in Kukle. As for the tourists who visit Suwałki Region taking its hiking trails and kayak routes, they have on their way good camp sites, riverside and youth hostels and cheap accommodation in private houses. Neither buying food nor hiring tourist equipment such as tents, kayaks, bicycles, yachts and even motor boats causes any problems. Stables offer lovers of horse riding their services. Those who like quiet forests, bathing in lakes and beautiful views should decide to rest in Suwałki Region. You are invited!
