Augustów

 


 

The small town of Augustów is located in the northeastern part of Poland, close to the Lithuanian and Belarusian border. It is the administrative seat of Augustów County.

Augustów officially became a health-cure resort in 1970. In Augustów and its environment there are several lakes offering excellent conditions for water sports with facilities such as a hoist for water-skiers.

Cross-bordering between Poland and Belarus, Augustów Canal (80km within present-day Polish borders) is a remarkable achievement of 19th century hydraulic engineering. There are 18 locks on the canal of which 14 are in Poland.

Running through the beautiful Augustów Forest, the canal links all the larger Augustów lakes, creating an attractive waterway for kayaking and pleasure boat cruising. The Augustów Canal is on the UNESCO World Heritage Tentative List.
