All Saints Day is very important in Poland. It's a shame, that our Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki decided on Friday afternoon about closing cemeteries for three days. I don't even have pictures from this year. I've been to cemetery twice in October, but it was more about cleaning the gravestones. The picture was taken in 2014.


Dzień Wszystkich Świętych jest bardzo ważny w Polsce. Szkoda, że nasz premier Mateusz Morawiecki zdecydował w piątkowe popołudnie o zamknięciu cmentarzy na trzy dni. Byłam dwa razy na cmentarzu w październiku , ale to było bardziej po to żeby czyścić pomniki. Zdjęcie jest z 2014 roku.

You start the bicycle route to Gościno at Plac Ratuszowy. It leads through Zieleniewo and Charzyno, so you can find a description of this part of the trail here.

When you go through the Charzyno forest, just go straight all the time. There are fields on both sides until you reach the road 162 and the village of Ząbrowo.

'Attention. End of cycle path. The section to Gościno is accessible on foot via the provincial road 162.'
Turn right and go to the other side along the lanes. You continue here by bike. Near the village of Jarogniew, there are shelters where you can relax and read about wind farms and the fauna and flora of Gościno.
You go further to cross the provincial road 162 again.
You enter the area of charming ponds and houses.
You also come across the Jeziorki fishery, hidden behind the big trees at this time of the year.
In Gościno, you pass the dairy on the right, go to the left side of the road162 at the roundabout, and continue straight to the cemetery, which will be on the left. Next to the little chapel, there is the old cemetery and the German lapidarium. On the right side of the Mickiewicza Street there is a newer municiapal cemetery. You'll also see the church of St. Andrzej Bobola from here.
The route Kołobrzeg, Town Hall Square to Gościno, the cemetery is 19.8 km long.

The weather in September was good. I decided to go by bike to Charzyno. Start Town Hall Square, Kołobrzeg. We head towards the Parsęta River. The cycling and walking route starts behind the Casablanca restaurant. By the river, we turn left and then right and cross the river. There is a bit of a cycle route missing here, so you can either walk or take the road to the roundabout. From the roundabout, we have a bicycle route again. At the second roundabout, turn left into Trzebiatowska Street (road 102 towards Międzyzdroje).

Go straight ahead until we pass the Municipal Cemetery on the right. You have to go to the other side of the street, near the Miejski Zakład Zieleni, Dróg i Ochrony Środowiska.
We keep going straight along road 102. At the beginning of the village of Zieleniewo, on Hetmańska Street, there is a bicycle service bike2door .
At some point in Zieleniewo, the bicycle route ends, but only for a short time. We pass on the right. Dziki Zachód Park Rozrywki Zieleniewo (the Wild West Zieleniewo Amusement Park). I highly recommend this place for kids and parents. Great fun.
We're crossing Route 102. Be careful.It is very busy.
We cross a small bridge. Underneath it - flows the Stróżka, which is a watercourse connecting the Błotnica River with the Parsęta River. The route turns right along with the fields. On the left, there is a concrete factory. We reach a place near the village of Bezpraw and cross the road 102. There is a board with information about routes and communes. We are on the Trail to the Sea (but we are going in the other direction).
We reach the embankment over the S6 expressway, and now we breathe in the fresh air of the Charzynski forest. There is a shelter nearby where you can rest and eat something. From this place, it is about 3 km to the church of st. Francis of Assisi.
In Charzyna, you have to turn right into Wojska Polskiego Street (if you go straight, we would continue the route to Gościn). On the left, there will be the church of st. Francis of Assisi.
Behind the church there is a small water reservoir. It's worth to walk there. It is a lovely place to grab a bite to eat and see beautiful water lilies and numerous dragonflies. After about 100 meters we will reach the playground.
Kołobrzeg route, Town Hall Square to Charzyno, the church of st. Francis is 11.8 km.
