The Slovinski National Park is one of 23 national parks and one of 2 sea-side parks in Poland. It was founded to preserve in the unchangeable beauty, the system of seaside lakes, bogs, peatbogs, meadows, seaside woods and forests, but first of all, to maintain a dune belt of spits with moving dunes, unique in Europe. The dignity and the natural value of the Slovinski National Park are testified by the fact of its placement in an international network of protected areas, such as: HELCOMBSPA, World Nature Sanctuary or Ramsar wetland area.



About the Heritage Site

  • Country: Northern Poland (Pomorskie Voivodship)
  • Location: Close to the city of Łeba at the Baltic Sea coast
  • Type of location: Moving sand dunes on the coast of the Baltic Sea
  • Experience offered:
The most impressive attraction of Łeba and Slowinski NationalPark, are the moving dunes. About 8 kilometers on the west, between the sea and lake are located dunes. Called the shifting sand dunes as they move to the west (towards the Łeba) at a rate of about 3 to 15m per year. The highest of them, is Dune Łącka raised about fourty meters above sealevel, with sea sand from the Baltic Sea in the north and from Lake Łebsko in the south. The Dunes in Leba are not a permanent creation, they are moving from place to place.

The Slovinski National Park is visited by thousands of tourists, fond of the beauty and variability of its landscape. In order to maintain one of the most precious tie of indigenous nature, which undoubtedly is The Land of Water, Wind and Sand, there have been allocated only selected areas of the Park for tourism practicing as well as special regulations have been introduced for sightseeing there. Protecting these regulations by the visitors enables the efficient protection of natural peculiarities of the Slovinski Coast. It also serves the point that the recollections of summer holidays recorded in the memories or cameras could also be the privilege of further generations. The information on regulations and limits, to which tourist circulation is subordinated on the terrain of the Park, can be found along the tourist tracks, at the parking lots or at the instructive spots.
