Before you start reading and browsing through the stunning pictures of the Masurian Lake District, take a look at the map below. You will find there all the best places to visit in Mazury Poland that we write about in this post:

Because of the relatively small area of the region, we decided to add Żuławy and Warmia to this list as well.

That means you will not only see the best places to visit in Mazury Poland here but also other worth-seeing spots in Warminsko-Mazurskie Voivodeship.

Giżycko

Nestled between two lakes: Niegocin and Kisajno, Gizycko is one of the best places to visit in Mazury Poland.

It’s the town frequently chosen by domestic and foreign tourists for their holiday destination. Not only they can find the beautiful beaches nearby, do some water sports but also go sightseeing.

One of the biggest attraction in the town are the Boyen Fortress and the Water Tower.

Elbląg

Once one of the most beautiful cities in Poland, Elbląg, is a part of Żuławy.

The Old Town of Elbląg was considered even more stunning than the one in Gdansk- unfortunately, it was almost completely destroyed by Russians at the end of World War II.

It’s now being restored, so you can still see some ruins right next to the impressive monuments.

The main reason to visit Elbląg is different though. It’s where you can find one of the Seven Wonders of Poland- Elbląg Canal. It has a unique system of inclined planes, each equipped with parallel rail tracks. The boats are carried on carriages that run on these rails. 

You can take a cruise on one of these boats (that are actually similar to trams!). How awesome is that?

Mikołajki

One of the most beautiful places in Mazury Poland, Mikolajki has a lovely old town and pretty nice beaches.

The reason why tourists are visiting Mikolajki is Tropicana Aquapark located in the famous Golebiewski Hotel. Kids and adults can have endless fun sliding down the waterslides and playing in the pools.

Lavender Fields (Lawendowe Pole)

Masurian Lake District has its own Lavender Fields where you can take some Insta-worthy photos!

Located in Nowe Kawkowo, it’s open from May till the end of September.

Olsztyn

The capital of Warmia and Masuria Voivodeship, Olsztyn is definitely worth visiting.

It has it all- the vibrant atmosphere of Old Town, the beautiful beach, and of course the monuments that will take your breath away.

Mrągowo

One of the biggest towns of the Masurian Lake District, Mrągowo is famous for the country music festival.

We’ve attended it a few years ago and it was pretty amazing! Apart from the music, it’s worth visiting Mrągowo to do some water sports and relax on the beach.

Węgorzewo

That’s probably one of the most peaceful places to visit in Masurian Lake District.

Węgorzewo is located on the shores of the Mamry, the second-largest lake in Poland. The biggest tourist attraction in the town is the Museum of Folk Culture, where you can learn a bit more about Polish culture and history.

Open Air Museum in Olsztynek

The Open Air Museum in Olsztynek is one of the best (and the largest!) in the entire country of Poland.

You can learn there about the culture and history of the Masurian district. If you are traveling with kids, they will love the fact that there are some farm animals living in the museum.

Wolf’s Liar

It is a gem for all the history buffs (but not only!). Wilczy Szaniec is Adolf Hitler’s secret military headquarter.

Wolf’s Liar is definitely one of the best places to visit in Mazury Poland.

Święta Lipka

One of the best pilgrimage sites in Poland, Święta Lipka sanctuary is a must-visit for all the Catholics.

The baroque basilica that you can see on the photo above is impressive. Święta Lipka is where many people claimed to be healed by Virgin Mary.
