A rapidly growing port town and the largest health spa on the Polish coast, Kolobrzeg has for a long time drawn native as well as foreign visitors. The sea and the 12 km long beautiful beach, the valuable historical monuments, clean air, large green areas and the choice of entertainment activities make Kolobrzeg such a popular holiday spot.
Thanks to its specific microclimate and natural curative products (therapeutic mud and brine) Kolobrzeg ranks among the favourite seaside health resorts. The town has great hotel resources, qualified basic and specialist medical personnel plus the diagnostic and therapeutic facilities essential to cater for the needs of patients of all ages. This is one of the most outstanding spas for treating diseases of the respiratory, motor and cardiovascular systems, together with diseases of the endocrine system and the metabolism. It also specialises in treating children.
Kolobrzeg is located centrally along the Polish Baltic coast, on the border with the Trzebiatowskie Coast and the plains of Gryficka and Bialogardzka. Located at the mouth of the Parseta River estuary on the Baltic Sea, it sits at an average altitude of 8 m above sea level.
Back in the 7th century, Kolobrzeg was 4 km from the Baltic coast and the ancient settlers of the time made their living by producing salt and trading it (the settlement was known as Salsa Cholbergiensis – Salt City).
