 Church in the neo-Roman style

Today's temple, in the neo-Roman style, was built in the mid 19th century (1844-1849), and owes its characteristic, unique look to carved boulders originating from the Stone Island on the Gardno lake. Next to the church one may find a characteristic, wooden bell tower. The history of construction of this church hides many legends and traditions. However, all of the legends have a common hero. It is devil. The central point of these traditions is the Stone Island on the Gardno lake, rocks from which were used to build the church. One of the legends says that the pastor from Gardna Wielka, who was supposed to celebrate a morning liturgy in Rowy, entered into a pact with the devil. During one night the devil was supposed to built a causeway through the lake so that the pastor have a shorter way to go to Rowy. But the pastor got frightened with his commitment, told his wife about this fact, and she cheated the devil waking up a cock, who, crowing, tricked the devil with premature dawn. The devil left the job - this is what the name Stone Island comes from - and ran away judging that he had lost the pastor's soul

 Nudists'beach in Rowy
Nudists'beach in Rowy In order to come to the beach, one has to take the way east, which leads to the only textile beach on this side of the Łupawa river, and from there already only a 15 minute-walk along the sea shore eastwards. Part of the road can be covered through a forest, by leaving the green-red trail and taking the black one seaward. After going out to the beach, the boundary of the nude beach is already visible. This route unfortunately costs money, because we pay for entry to the Park. Compared to the location of 1990, N beach has become almost twice as close: from the black trail one would still keep going for at least 20 minutes. The boundary of the beach was in 1996 marked with blue plastic film "flags" visible from far away, suspended on tall sticks. On sand, a small board with hand-written text "NUDE BEACH" was appearing sometimes just at the sea

 Kluki - Słowiński Village Museum

Kluki - Słowiński Village Museum Słowiński Village Museum as a museum farmstead has already existed since 1963. Kluki was a village, in which the relics of material culture of the native population remained for the longest time. The area of the Museum is approximately 10 ha of land, on which 20 facilities are founded, including 7 cottages, 7 sheds, 2 barns, 2 bread ovens, boats and fishing equipment warehouse and a fishermen's shelter. All buildings have a special (szachulcowa) structure, roofs are covered with reed. The oldest reconstructed object within the Museum is, originating from the end of the 18th century, cottage of Charlotta Klick from Kluki Smołdzińskie. This is a typical (szachulcowy) building with pitched roof and the jerkin head on the southern side. Inside a unique chimney type fire system has been preserved. In the second half of the 19th century on the side of the northern peak the building was expanded by the vestibule, kitchen and chamber, in this way creating a two-family house. This cottage was moved from the eastern part of the village, settlement, known as Dambowi.
 Gardno Lake
Gardno Lake It is the second largest lake in the Słowiński National Park and at the same time the second largest Polish coastal lake by area. The comtemporary shoreline of this reservoir is 23.3 km. Lake Gardno receives water above all from the eastern side through the Łupawa River, which flows through this lake. In addition, the following rivers flow into it on the southern side: Bagienica, Grabownica and Brodna, and, in addition, Gardno is connected from the east by the channel Łupawa-Łeba with the Łebsko Lake. The bottom of the reservoir is generally flat, covered with slime and sediments of thickness reaching 2.5 m. the area of the Gardno Lake, like that of the Łebsko Lake, is exposed to gradual shrinkening as a result of development of reed rushes. A unique curiosity of the lake is the Stone Island located in its central part, which has been covered by strict protection - as hatchery of rare bird species.
