Welcome to Darłowo
Inland Darłowo and little seaside sister Darłówko on the Wieprza River form an interesting pair of siblings. The former Hanseatic trading port of Darłowo still retains traces of its wealthy medieval past, contrasting starkly with hedonistic Darłówko and its seasonal fish fryers, sandy beach and as-tacky-as-they-come promenade of Chinese-made souvenirs. Inevitably, it’s Darłówko that is the main draw for visitors and the town has the lion’s share of accommodation and places to eat. Its only ‘sight’ is a pedestrian drawbridge uniting the western and eastern sides of the river, which opens when boats go into or out of the bay. The two communities are linked by a river taxi and local buses that run along both sides of the river. Otherwise it’s around 30 minutes on foot.
