Information about Wisła

Wisla, better known in our latitudes as the Vistula, is a small town in Polish Silesia. Despite its changeable history, the region has been able to retain its original character. Book your apartment with us in Wisla and use it as a starting point for a journey north, along the Polish border up to the Amber Coast of the Baltic Sea. Check out our private accommodation in Wisla and choose your favourite.

Your apartment in Wisla – directly on the bank of the Vistula River

The area around Wisla was first settled in the 17th century. At that time, wide, inaccessible forest areas dominated, which were now cleared extensively in order to make room for flocks of sheep. Sheep farming remained the city’s most important source of income until the 19th century. Then tourism gradually began, as Wisla was discovered by summer visitors due to its location on the Vistula. The town itself has belonged to Poland only since 1919, before that it was part of the Great Empire of Austria-Silesia and thus part of the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy. Worth seeing is above all the Protestant church built in classicist style, in whose immediate proximity the Beskydy Museum is located. Just outside the city you will find numerous hiking trails and the residence castle of the Polish president, which was completed in 1931 with seemingly lavish luxury. However, there are no possibilities for couchsurfing in Wisla. But our apartments in Wisla allow you to experience your stay as if you were a local. Nature lovers, on the other hand, are regularly drawn to the shore of Lake Czernianski. From there, a small path leads to the Rodlo Cascades, a series of smaller waterfalls considered the most beautiful in the Beskydy Mountains. The Beskydy Mountains as part of the Western Carpathians are also responsible for the fact that Wisla has become a ski resort in recent decades. Along the Polish western border, your way could now lead you north to West Pomerania, or to Szczecin for that matter. The city lies in the approximately five kilometre wide estuary of the Oder, which also led to the development of one of the most important Baltic Sea ports. The city area itself, which is surrounded by the two main arteries of the Oder, also includes several islands, some of them of considerable size. Numerous private holiday accommodations in Szczecin are located in the old town, which suffered severe damage during the Second World War. The reconstruction has not been completed to this day. The castle of the Dukes of Pomerania, which is located on the highest point of the old town, was reconstructed according to original plans. Remains of the former city wall still remind us of the time when Szczecin was founded in the 12th century.

Between Russia and Germany, private apartments in Wisla

While the inhabitants of Wisla have always been able to retain an independent character, the formerly strong Prussian influence is much more noticeable in Kolberg. The small town was first settled in the 9th century, lies directly on the Baltic coast and quickly gained economic importance due to the rich salt deposits on the coast. Over the centuries, Prussian and Swedish occupiers alternated again and again. Despite severe destruction towards the end of the Second World War, the old town was rebuilt largely according to original models. The most important landmark in the immediate vicinity of the numerous private accommodations in Kolberg is the Kolberg Cathedral. The oldest areas were already built in the 14th century, and numerous valuable furnishings such as the baptismal font or a seven-armed chandelier date from this period. With a little luck you can find amber on a walk along the coast. The petrified resins are washed ashore by the surf, which is why this section is also called the Amber Coast. Further west on the island of Usedom lies Swinemünde. The city itself developed only in the 18th century with the construction of the new port and belongs since 1945 to the Polish territory. Book with us your private holiday home in Swinemünde, in the immediate vicinity of the city’s landmark – the Christuskirche. The oldest areas of the sacral building were erected during the city’s founding period and expanded further in the 19th century. In addition, numerous fortifications still remind of the time when Prussia extended the promontory to a bulwark against invading Swedish armies. From here it is then only a short distance to our private holiday apartments in Berlin. The landmark of Germany’s capital is the Brandenburg Gate, which today is regarded as a symbol of both division and reunification. More than ten million visitors flock to di
