Gizycko Water Tower

The Water Tower was built in 1900 entirely of red unplastered bricks in the neo-gothic style with interesting external vaulting around its crown and two coats of arms over the entrance: one Mazurian and one municipal to emphasise its being part of the region. The water Reservoir in the tower distributed water to all the dwellings for 97 years. Nowadays, following the great reconstruction of the interior and adding a dome and three additional floors and extending the viewing platform with telescopes, the tower has become Giżycko’s most unique tourist attraction. To reach the top, one has to climb 129 steps (or use the lift). The highest floor of the tower is 162 m above sea level and it houses a café. From this height, one can truly appreciate the Panorama of the town and the surrounding areas with lakes and Forests – a typical Mazurian landscape. The inside the tower houses the local museum with exhibits that illustrate the past life of the local people.

Lovely building. Fab view from the top. Cafe with tasty treats available on the top floors. You can walk all the way up or take a lift to the floor below the top (so you will need to be able to climb stairs). Some interesting artefacts on the floors on your way up/down.

We hired bikes and cycled over from Gizycko on a fab cycle path through sandy tracks, local villages and forest trails. This was fun in itself! We arrived and paid the 15zloty fee and parked our bikes at the entrance. We were offered a tour by one of the blokes by the cafe but decided to buy a guide and walk around ourselves. Be warned there is little information at the site so a tour or guidebook purchase is required to get the full benefit. We spent a good 90 mins or so following the site markers and Reading from the books, such an important site for WW2 history, and we enjoyed looking into the bunkers and imaging the decisions and life that went on their in the 1940's. I did get eaten alive by mosquito's - so spray would be a handy addition to anything you take with you if you visit in the summer. I still really enjoyed it, though I am a bit of a history nut.

Central Park

Reviewed By cr3ate - Olsztyn, Poland

Good place for walking, jogging or cycling. You can also just lay down on the grass and relax. There is a huge Fountain where children can play during the summer. Public toilets are paid but they are not clean unfortunately. It's very close to the city center and old town. Missing a cafe or restaurant where you coulkd grab a coffee.
