Entrance cost few PLN (3 or 4). Zubry are really worth to go there. However road it's not good. It's nice that people are taking care of this huge animals. If you child that's even better. Children are really happy to be there.

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.

Fab bridge, opens regularly for boat traffic so pay attention to the timings! We had to cross the rail bridge and the pedestrian bridge with our bikes as we hit the boat opening each was on our cycle trip. It's a quaint bridge and a very picturesque setting. Get an ice-cream and watch the boats sail by!

Boyen Fortress

Gizycko’s most interesting monument of exceptional historic value and tourist appeal is the Boyen Fortress. It is a rare example of a 19th century Prussian-school fortification and is one of the best preserved monuments of defensive architecture of the 19th century in Poland.

This is a very interesting historical site. I wish I had had more time to explore it. There are translations of certain exhibits etc in english and other languages. But it's not consistent. And coloured tracks were also confusing for me as they did not coincide with what was on my map. I think a good simple map with suggested routes and explanations would have been great.

Rope park Wiewiora

Reviewed By Roni L

We spent about 2 hours in the park.
It is great fun for all. Teenagers with a height of 160cm have all the variety (4 tracks) available to them.
Younger kids are limited.
Minimum height for kids track is 120cm. Ours managed it on her own with some encouragement and a lot of fun photos and videos taken from the ground.
There is one more medium track for over 140cm we didn't try it.
Teenagers and dad did the Omega (zip track) which includes 5 different runs, 2 over the river.
Great sport for the one taken the photos and videos
The staff were very helpful and spoke good enough English to clearly explain safety rules.
Only discomfort was the WC that wasn't inviting (to say the least).
