Ustka is a city located in the north of Poland at the mouth of the Slupia River. It is a well-known seaside resort. It was founded around the thirteenth century, for the moment it is a port and a spa.
When in Ustka, of course, you should see the sea and the beach. Ustka has two bathing areas, eastern and western. We were on the western side.
To reach the beach, you have to go through the park. Irena Kwiatkowska's bench is a must see thing. The park also has a statue of Fryderyk Chopin and the statue 'Dying Warrior'The Dom Pracy Tworczej (House of Creative Work) is nearby. The building dates from the 19th century and is a seasonal hotel.
On the way, at least take a look at  Villa Red. A neat, eye-catching building that used to be the summer residence of German Chancellor Otto von Bismarck.
Walking along the promenade we got to the port, with the lighthouse that doesn't draw attention. In comparison to Kołobrzeg, it is rather small but very beautiful (the word I think is cosy here).
Of course, you should also take photos with the Mermaid. She watches the entrance to the port. Once a statue of Saint was standing here. John of Nepomuk. Since 2010, however, the Ustka Mermaid is located on the eastern breakwater. It has a short but interesting story that you can read here.
Next, we set off by the port wharf, which in itself is worth a look, but above all smells of fish here.
Unfortunately, there was no time to go to the west, so we turned back to the port with climatic streets.
Here we waited to the opening of the pedestrian and bicycle crossings to the west. The transition, or exactly the bridge, which is moved every hour for fifteen minutes. It's worth seeing it, especially in the evening.
We're coming back to the hotel walking through empty streets in the evening ...
