High chalk cliffs cut off from the deep blue sea, ancient beech forests and romantic, pre-war villas with lace verandas - Rügen is one of the most beautiful corners of northern Europe . Not everyone knows that this largest German island is only two hours away from the Polish border. It is worth coming here for the weekend to look for traces of a Slavic settlement that has not been conquered for hundreds of years, to see if it was really difficult to climb the famous Royal Throne and eat the famous herring roll. Or a herring in a bun.
Rügen is an island for people who like to spend time actively, wandering along forest trails, walking and cycling. It is also an excellent direction for everyone who is interested in the so-called spa architecture, characteristic of 19th-century Prussia. The famous chalk cliffs and jagged coastline of the island also attract lovers of landscape photography.
