The Polish border town Świnoujście may easily be reached over the water. The “Świna” River, an estuary of the river Oder, winds its way through the town and connects the 900 m² Szczecin lagoon with the Baltic Sea. The scenically most interesting region is called “country of 44 islands”. It consists of dozens of islands and islet, just three of which being inhabited: Uznam, Wolin and Karsibór. Sailors who moor here find the “Town without Boarders” a reflourishing sea resort. For decades it was known as “Spa of World Renown” and then was an important stop-over of travellers from Berlin on their way to Rügen or Bornholm.
The Haff, or lagoon itself averages a depth of 3.8 m and is not difficult to navigate, however there are hardly no buoys and only a few small harbours.
Świnoujście is called the Land of 44 islands. It consists of dozens of islands and islets with only the biggest three being inhabited. They are Uznam, Wolin and Karsibór.
