Photographer's Note

...the same beach as on the previous photo, only now it started raining, the beach became almost immediately deserted, only this small kid continued playing as if it was a perfect day...

Dzwirzyno is a little town situation on the Baltic seashore on one side and with a lake on another. It is an excellent holiday destination for those who love to relax on the beach, while at the same time offering abundant possibilities of other forms of recreation. Since the 1970s it has boasted the status of a spa town, which together with a robust tourist base, draws flocks of visitors dreaming of sun, white sand and fresh air.
I can only recommend this place with hard-to-pronounce name for all those who feel a strange longing for Baltic strange seashore sights, lonely beaches, pines and sand dunes, towering old lighthouses and little villages, where you can get baked fish cheaper than a hotdog.

Dzwirzyno belongs to the Western Pomeranian Voivodship, covering the north-eastern corner of Poland. This village lies on the Baltic Sea shore as well as that of Lake Resko Przymorskie, the latter linked with the open sea by a canal. What is interesting is that back in mediaeval times there was no connection between the lake and the sea until the 15th century when the land dividing it was broken by a storm on the sea.

Dzwirzyno is located some 13 km west of Kolobrzeg, and is one of the main urban centres of the area.
