Event description
Can you imagine summer without water? No, wait.
Can you imagine your life without water? Eating, drinking, showering, swimming… almost every activity needs water.

This SUmmer you’ll have an amazing opportunity to not only spend the very best time of your life but also to see the importance of water and to experience countless water activities!

Our trip will start at the coast of the Baltic Sea where you’ll explore the most beautiful places of so called the Tricity – Gdynia, Sopot and the maritime capital of Poland, Gdańsk. Imagine the feeling of warmth of the sun on your skin and the smell of the sea breeze… How about a long walk on the Seaside Boulevard or on the beach? You’ll also get the chance to go to Hel Peninsula by water bus, to visit a museum ship ORP Błyskawica and to discover every little corner of the Long Lane in Gdańsk.

Filled up with positive energy we will follow the Vistula river up to Toruń, where we will meet more water attractions, take part in Polish cooking workshop and go to Barbarka Rope Park. Before leaving Toruń you will definitely have to taste its famous traditional gingerbread that will give your stay an additional, spicy flavour.

Last but not least part of our trip will take place in one of the better-known Polish cities, located by the Warta river, Poznań. Get ready to spend unforgettable time at the Strzeszyńskie Lake near Poznań, play hare and hounds on the Ostrów Tumski Island and visit the Lech Brewery where you’ll see how the most popular beer in Greater Poland region is produced. Every day you will face different water games and activities that will end up with a great water balloon battle!

So… are you ready to get wet this SUmmer?
Places visited
Gdańsk
The thousand-year-old Gdańsk is considered to be the most monument-packed city of "Baltic Europe". Most of the monuments in Gdańsk are located near the heart of its Old Town District, around Długa Street (the Long Lane). This is the main track of the town, where you'll see the beautiful renovated XVI - XVII century houses. All these magnificent buildings are overshadowed by the beautiful and monumental Main Town Hall. (the splendid interior was renovated not so long ago)
Apart from those monuments, there are a lot more. Among them you have to mention the Green Gate, Gdańsk Harbor or the Crane. Everyone will definitely find something interesting in this astonishing city.
Toruń
The birthplace of Nicolaus Copernicus, a prominent trade center in the Middle Ages – called ‘Cracow of the North’. Torun is the most Gothic urban complex in Poland, one of the most important tourist centers of unique value in the state, right after Cracow the second richest of original and best preserved historical monuments city in Poland. The whole complex of Torun Old Quarter is on the unique UNESCO list.
Poznań
Have you ever had occasion to fall in love with a city? If not, Poznan will take your heart with its unique treasures, which stand dreamily watching their own reflections in the fast flowing Warta River. The area of Poznan enjoys one of the lowest annual rainfalls in Poland, which, in practical terms, means that we can enjoy ourselves to the limit (the sky is the limit) and we almost never fall. History and tradition interweave with modernity offering you everything from bustling tourist attractions to idyllic hideaway. Even if you walk the cobbled streets alone, you’ll be swept away by the magic that has given Poznan a reputation for being Poland’s most popular small-big city. Here green areas take up more than 27% of the city’s area, unfortunately, huge clusters of gorgeous ladies that can be spotted in every nook and cranny of the city divert our attention from nature.
