The Turquoise Lake (Polish: Jezioro Turkusowe Wolin) is situated in Wapnica village. In Poland turquoise lakes are very rare. This lake, although it isn’t visible at the first sight, is an artificial water body. It arose from the old chalk mine operating in the 50s.

Reviews

I enjoyed my walk around Szczecin old town. I had a map with a route to follow around the whole area. It was great! Philharmonic building and Breakthrough Centre just by it, was a real cherry on top for me. Highly recommended tour!
Finn
All buildings at Waly Chrobrego and architecture is just breathtaking. Upheavals Centre is a brand new addition to the cultural offering. Lots of audio and video contents will narrate you the story of the city. Everyone was nice and friendly too. A must see. I am interested in WWII so Breakthroughs and Railway Station Underground were my favourite points.
