Ma­surian Lake Dis­trict, Poland

Qantas - - Qnews. - LEAH GREENGARTEN

Emerald moun­tains, cerulean lakes and is­land-hop­ping are not the first things that spring to mind when you think of Poland. But that’s the prom­ise of the coun­try’s Ma­surian Lake Dis­trict. Lo­cated about three hours’ drive north of War­saw and com­pris­ing more than 2000 lakes, the re­gion has some­how es­caped the at­ten­tion of for­eign trav­ellers. But it’s only a mat­ter of time be­fore the “land of a thou­sand lakes”, as it’s lov­ingly re­ferred to by lo­cals, be­gins to trend on so­cial me­dia. Base your­self in the his­toric town of Giży­cko to ex­plore the area’s bounty or char­ter a boat if, like us, you pre­fer drift­ing from one is­land to an­other. What­ever you choose, get there be­fore the hordes do.
