Moving dunes

Słowiński National Park (Słowiński Park Narodowy) – a national park on the Baltic coast in Pomeranian, Poland. UNESCO biosphere reserve – Man and the Biosphere Programme (since 1977) and a Ramsar site (The Słowiński Wetlands – since 1995). Established in 1967 to preserve in the unchangeable beauty, the system of seaside lakes (Łebsko, Gardno, Dolgie Wielkie), bogs, peatbogs, meadows, seaside woods and forests, but first of all, to maintain a dune belt of spits with moving dunes, unique in Europe.* Thanks to the wind and waves the dunes (some of them 30 m high) “move” with with the speed 3-10 m per year.

The name of the Słowiński National Park comes from Polish “Słowińcy” – Slovincians, a West Slavic tribe who was living in that area.
