Photographer's Note

This maritime town of approximately 15 thousand permanent inhabitants becomes a bustling place every summer. Starting from June, crowds of holidaymakers arrive to enjoy the sunny beaches, clean air, and historical sights. Together with adjoining Darlowko, it is a popular sea resort offering many possibilities for active vacationing.

The medieval layout of the old town has remained almost unchanged to this day, as has the Gothic church of St Mary of Fatima from 1394. Inside you can admire the beautiful polychrome, the wooden pulpit and the tombstone of King Eric. Another interesting sight to see is the lapidary, quite near the church, and the ancient Oak of Luther. In the Main Square are the Baroque Town Hall, the Chapel of St Gertrude and a fountain with a figure of a sailor. Those who are interested in weapons and aviation should visit the open-air museum.

However, the main highlight of Darlowo is the Castle of Pomeranian Dukes situated on the island. From the tower you can enjoy extensive views over the town and the local countryside. Its original interiors house the museum of Darlowos histor, and it includes many interesting items such as paintings, sculpture, furniture, weapons, objects made from amber, maps and much else.

The beaches of Darlowo are popular among holidaymakers and the patients who visit this place to take care of their health. The district of Darlowko is known especially as a health resort, but you can also have a cruise on a ship or water tram, while another attraction is the bascule bridge on the Wieprza River.

A surprising attraction is the local power station, which has some of the highest mills in Europe. These total some 118 m and are a curiosity that regularly draws numbers of visitors to Darlowo.
