Łebsko Lake

Nature lovers will marvel at Łebsko Lake, which is just one of many natural lakes in and around Łeba. It is a part of Słowiński National Park. Despite its location, it was never directly joined to the Baltic Sea. It was formed because the sea level rose and flooded into the gap in the meadows forming a lake.

Amber Museum

This region of Poland has been famous for its amber for generations. The amber is found in and around Gdańsk and all along Poland’s coast. Łeba has a nice little Amber Museum, which explains how historically important the product has been here. There is a shop that sells sculptures, jewellery and even board games all made from amber.

Ruins of St Nicholas’s church

To the west of the city in a forest area on the way to the beach is a sight that is so unremarkable, most people don’t even notice it. It is a tiny piece of brick wall standing on its own. What is it? This is the protected remains of what was once a large church – St. Nicholas’s church.

You’ll have already hopefully visited Łebsko Lake, so now it’s time to delve deeper into Słowiński National Park, meaning heading further west to the sand dunes. This will be a pure highlight for your time exploring Łeba as these are moving sand dunes that change shape in the wind. These dunes are the closest thing Poland has to a desert.

Stilo Lighthouse

Being on the coast, Łeba is of course home to a lighthouse. Through the years, the city has been a highly important sea port with boats coming and going from the Baltic countries to and from Denmark and Sweden. Stilo Lighthouse has been guiding ships for more than 100 years. It is painted red, white and black and was built in 1904 in nearby Osetnik (formerly called Stilo, hence the name).
