The Czarna Hancza River – one of the most beautiful kayaking routes in Poland. The river meanders among the meadows and woods of the Augustów Primeval Forest. The river is wide with fast current and it creates gentle bends and turns.
The Augustow Canal – a unique monument in Europe, standing as a candidate to be entered into the UNESCO World Heritage Site. Is an example of symbiosis of a technical object and nature. It was constructed in order to link the Vistula with the Neman and the Latvian Baltic Sea Coast. The canal’s length is over 103 km, where 80 km is on Poland’s territory - 77.5 km is fully floatable.
9 of 14 locks located on Polish territory remain very close to the original technical shape.
The Neman River – (Nemunas) Lithuanian longest river - 937 km, surrounded by green meadows and forests, slow current. Small villages on the riverside, archaic houses and crosses at the crossroads.
