I had a chance to spend few days in Kaszuby earlier this year and it was as pretty as I imagined. I stayed in the heart of the region, in a small village Wdzydze Kiszewskie. It was mid May so there weren’t all that many people around, only some school groups. Sadly, even if there’re less than 200 inhabitants in the village, Wdzydze looked like a summer nightmare place that I wouldn’t like to visit in the peak season. But May seems like a perfect time to be there. It was quite and peaceful, singing birds woke me up early in the morning, lakes were empty – everything a person needs to relax in a beautiful landscape.
Wdzydze is also known for the oldest open-air museum in Poland, showing the old architecture typical for Kaszuby region. While I preferred the museum in Sierpc I enjoyed this one as well. I always like wandering this kind of museums and imagining how the life used to look like all these years ago. This one had a really nice location, in the forest at the shore of the lake and at some points I really felt like I moved back in time!

Another attraction of Wdzydze that I really enjoyed was a watch tower. A pretty high one – 36 meters – and located next to the point where four lakes meet, offers a breathtaking view of the area. I went there twice and it still wasn’t enough for me, I could spend hours just staring at this perfect view. But as well I could spend hours just sitting in the pier, with my feet in the lake, reading a book or staring at the endless surface of the water in front of me…
