Peaceful for most of the year, Mielno starts life for real when summer arrives and brings with it flocks of people who want to enjoy their summer holidays in this seaside village setting. Mielno is perfect for those who dream of holidays on the beach, a relaxed atmosphere and plenty of attractions - this summer resort located on the shore of the Baltic Sea offers the best opportunity to make these dreams come true.
Mielno is a large village of over 2,000 inhabitants located in Western Pomerania. While in Mielno, observe how its historical architecture, especially the 19th-century villas in the centre, lends that air of grace. Some of them, richly decorated with wood, are almost fairy-tale constructions with their towers and balconies. Another historical sight is the Gothic Church of the Transfiguration, dating back to the 15th century, though its interior has been refurnished during later époques.
Only 12 kilometres north of Koszalin, Mielno lies on the edge of the Baltic Sea, with a strip of low dunes lining the coastline and forming a boundary between the gloriously sandy beach and the village. To the south, Mielno borders on the large Jamno Lake, the village itself standing on an isthmus between the sea and lake. Due to its clean air, saturated with mineral elements and great climate, Mielno is popular also as a health resort.
The first record of a settlement dates back to the 13th century. Originally a fishing village, Mielno grew into a popular summer resort in the second half of the 19th century. The increasing numbers of tourists led to the construction of many guest houses and private villas offering rooms for rent.
