Located at the mouth of the Parsęta River in West Pomerania, the Hanseatic city of Kołobrzeg was founded in the Middle Ages and long played an important commercial and political role in the region. Largely destroyed in World War II, it was rebuilt and has since then become one of the most popular seaside resorts of Poland. In summer the town gets crowded with tourists of all ages enjoying the beaches or one of the healthy spa treatments offered by most of the hotels along the coast. In what is left of the old town, the Town Hall and impressive St. Mary Basilica are worth seeing.
