This is the most varied landscape in the region. Its uniqueness consists of the hundreds of crystal-clear lakes, the hilly terrain covered by beautiful forests and the sandy beaches of the coast. These lands have been inhabited for centuries by the indigenous Kashubians, who have maintained fidelity to their customs and have thus managed to retain their own language and literature.
