What to do in Inowrocław? Another city in our list of favorite places in the region. Extraordinary city with interesting history and … very salty!

What to do in Inowrocław? Inowrocław has rich deposits of rock salt, which have been mined here since ancient times, hence the term “city on salt”. However, since the closure and flooding of the “Solino” mine, salt has not been mined in the traditional way. The city is a military garrison. In the city, the highly mineralized water “Inowrocławianka”, which is reportedly the most salty drinking water sold in Poland, is being poured. There are also graduation towers in the brine park.
