A place to calm down and relax in the nature is located only 15 km from the centre of Gdańsk. Obviously, it is the Sobieszewska Island. It is famous for its two beautiful nature reserves. The “Ptasi Raj” (Birds’ Paradise) in Górki Wschodnie and “Mewia Łacha” (Seagull Sandbank) in Świbno. These places are inhabited by many species of birds. If you are an ornithologist or simply like to be in the nature you just have to go there. Additionally, you may be overwhelmed with the beautiful sights of the Vistula Mouth; if you like fishing it will be an opportunity to test your skills. The Sobieszewska Island contains not only the wonders of nature but also some architectural gems. One can encounter historical objects such as the 19th century water gate in Przegalin, Forsterówka in Orle, i.e. the former residence of gauleiter Albert Forster, Evangelic Steles by the church in Sobieszewo and historical houses in Pastwa Sobieszewska.

For those who like to spend their free time in an active manner, it is recommended to go there by bike because many interesting bike routes can be found there.
