Frombork and its vicinity


Frombork is a picturesque small town, called ‘The Jewel of Warmia’ or ‘The Pearl of Warmia’, stretching along the very shore of the Vistula Lagoon. First and foremost, Frombork is renowned for being the town of Nicolaus Copernicus. It is Frombork where the great scholar and scientist spent the most productive part of his life. In the background of the medieval Metropolitan Cathedral Basilica, Copernicus worked on his famous masterpiece - De revolutionibus orbium coelestium (On the Revolutions of the Heavenly Spheres). It was here, at Frombork Cathedral, that he was ‘re-buried’ on 22 May 2010. Visiting Frombork, you should not miss out on seeing Nicolaus Copernicus Museum, Hospital of the Holy Ghost and Poland’s oldest Water Tower, dating back to 1571. Frombork, and simultaneously Siedlisko, are a perfect accommodation base for organising numerous excursions in the surroundings, Warmia and Mazury. The mandatory landmarks to be visited in the vicinity include, among other things, picturesque locations on the Vistula Lagoon, the Vistula Spit with its highlight of Krynica Morska (cruise from Frombork), the Castle of the Teutonic Order in Malbork, reconstructed Old Town in Elbląg, as well as the Elbląg Canal with a system of water-driven ramps. Furthermore, the monuments of Warmia, involving a Gothic church in Orneta and nearby replica of Sanctuary of St. Mary in Święta Lipka, situated in Krosno, seem to be equally attractive for sightseers. The vicinity is also full of natural monuments, such as Elbląg Upland Landscape Park and Lake Drużno Nature Reserve.
