Kolobrzeg (German: Kolberg), is an old spa and seaside resort located on the Polish Baltic Sea coast at the mouth of the Parseta River just south of the danish island of Bornholm. The city has about 45,000 inhabitants.
Kolobrzeg is an ancient city whose history dates back to the 5th century. In the year 900 a castle was built at the mouth of the Parseta River and in the year 1000 it was a very important city, especially religiously in Pomerania. In the 14th century, the city joined the Hansa and quickly became one of the richest Hanseatic cities. Wealth originated in particular from a very extensive production of salt, one of the most important trade routes between the old Hanseatic cities was from Kolobrzeg (salt) via Stettin (herring) to Hamburg and Lübeck, but the city’s trading partners also extended in Europe to Spain and from England to Ukraine.
Salt production in Kolobrzeg lasted until the beginning of the 1600s. In the late 1800s, the city changed its way of life when it became known for its special microclimate and the iodine and saline air. This had a beneficial effect on people with respiratory and circulatory disorders and soon sanatoriums started coming in and around the city which later gained the status of a spa town. Today, more and more people are coming to Kolobrzeg to go on short or longer duration stays.
During World War II, Kolobrzeg was one of the first Polish coastal towns to be liberated, the city suffered severe destruction, about 90% of the city was in ruins, but today it is beautifully rebuilt and has restored many of the beautiful old houses in the original style. The greatness of the past does not deny, which you can see for yourself, it is a city worth a visit if you appreciate the sun, beach and beautiful buildings.
