Golub-Dobrzyn (General)

Best Of IgoUgo

Attraction | "A town of two styles"

A splendid view Photo, Golub-Dobrzyn, Poland
Golub-Dobrzyn is somewhere I found by accident. I was driving back from my holiday on the Baltic Coast and suddenly decided to chang the original route home to Warsaw to miss all the traffic around the city of Torun. This small town in Pomerania is split in two and each side of the town has a different character. I don't think we would have stopped to look around if we hadn't ended up stuck in a small traffic jam coming into the town and the fact that high above my head I spotted the most beautiful castle I have ever seen. If I hadn't known I was in Poland I would have thought I was high in the hills in some Spanish town. The sight was truly awesome.Golub-Dobrzyn was formed in 1951 by jo...Read More

Sarbinowo (General)

Best Of IgoUgo

Attraction | "I wish I could recommend it but I can't!"

Building sandcastles Photo,
On our last trip a couple of weeks ago to the Baltic Coast we decided to take a day out from Grzybowo and drive along the coast in the direction of Koszalin. I had heard quite a lot about the tiny village and beach of Sarbinowo and wanted to check it out in case we liked it and decided to stay there next year for a change. Looking at the Internet the village doesn't look much different to Gryzbowo with it's stretch of pure white sand and gently rolling waves but having now been for myself I can safely tell you that it is very different indeed.The drive from Gryzbowo is a pleasant one with rolling hills, a patchwork of verdant fields and the odd giant windmill popping up on the horizon....Read More

Chelmno (General)

Best Of IgoUgo

Attraction | "Charming Chelmno"

Chelmno is a beautiful small town I spotted on my way home from the Polish Coast two weeks ago. My husband decided to change the route going home to Warsaw to avoid the heavy traffic around Torun and when driving down one of Poland's quietest roads I noticed to the left of me in the distance perched high on the banks of the River Vistula - a fantastic scene - a skyline of red brick Gothic churches. Only problem was we were already late on our journey and if we were to stop off at Chelmno on that particular day we wouldn't have arrived home until midnight. So what did we do? We carried on home and returned on Tuesday of this week to see what this town, exactly 41 kilometres from Torun was really like. ...Read More

Pod winogronami

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant | "The restaurant under the grapevines"

Pod winogronami Photo, Kolobrzeg, Poland
Pod Winogronami is a restaurant we came across this year when visiting Kolobrzeg on the Polish Baltic Coast. In June we went to a different restaurant Ale Ryba which I have reviewed and although the restaurant itself was attractive enough the food wasn't very appetising so when we revisited in September we decided to try the restaurant directly opposite on Towarowa Street. Translated, Pod Winogronami means under the grapes or grapevines. I immediately thought that this was a strange name for a restaurant near the sea and from the outside it looked more like a restaurant you would find in Croatia or a courtyard/back garden of any pension in any Slavic country apart from Poland. ...Read More

Camping Bursztynek

Best Of IgoUgo

Hotel | "Nice campsite - shame about the TV"

Camping Bursztynek Photo, Grzybowo, Poland
In June of this year we visited Grzybowo on the Baltic Coast and fell in love with the place. When September came around we decided we wanted to visit again and take our granddaughter with us - her first holiday with her grandparents on her own without Mum and Dad. The original plan was to go back to the accommodation we used in June - Zula Chalets. As it was September we thought there would be plenty of vacancies but we were wrong the complex was fully booked so we decided to go with Camping Bursztynek instead.Camping Bursztynek is in the same village straight across the road from Zula Cottages. This entrance on Namiotowa is for rough camping (tents), caravans, campervans etc and not the ...Read More
