Świnoujście isn’t big on sights, with most visitors coming to laze on the beach, one of the widest and longest (and some say the best) in Poland. Back from the sands, the resort district still retains a certain fin-de-siècle air in places, with some elegant villas. This runs down to the seafront where the tack begins in the shape of waffle stands and fluffy toy seals.


Świnoujście has plenty of places to get some shut-eye, but you may have to approach the tourist office or accommodation agency if you decide to turn up unannounced during the short summer season.
