- Coastal delicacies
The direct location by the sea and access to clean water reservoirs affect the culinary offer of the Polish coast and lake districts. Sea and freshwater fish are the showpiece of the local cuisine. In seaside towns, fish are sold straight from fishing boats, which is a real attraction for visitors. Here, the king of the Baltic Sea is cod, the most popular fish next to herring and flounder.
- Kashubian strawberries
Kaszëbskô malëna, the Kashubian strawberry, has become very famous in Europe. During the Polish presidency in the European Union, in 2011, 3.5 tons of these strawberries were delivered from Kashubia as a culinary gadget advertising Poland among EU politicians and residents of Strasbourg. The tradition of growing strawberries in Kashubia dates back several hundred years.
- Tastes of Kashubia
Another local taste in Kashubia is pulki, i.e. potatoes with herring, which were usually eaten in Popielec ( “Ash Wednesday” ) and Good Friday. Scrambled eggs with sprats are also very popular. Here you will find regional dishes that you will not find anywhere else, for example pea soup served with salted herring or poultry stomachs in jelly. The showpiece of Kashubian cuisine is also “okrasa”, that is “obona” in Kashubian, called “goose tartare”.
- Flower kitchen
It is worth mentioning the flower cuisine, dishes with lavender, rose, fuchsia and other garden decorations are served along with recipes for these dishes and a large dose of culinary knowledge during the “Culinary Festival of Edible Flowers”.
- In Kujawy
What distinguishes the Kujawy cuisine is the “czernina soup”, rarely or not at all found in other parts of Poland. Known from history as “black soup”, it was served to scare away unwanted competitors or uninvited guests. The name comes from the fact that it is prepared with the addition of duck or goose blood (less often rabbit or pork) based on offal, especially stomachs and vegetables, fresh or dried fruit (pears, plums, apples), sometimes honey and spices.
History enthusiasts and will delight Gdansk with the Main Town and Long Coast, and the “city from the sea” – Gdynia. Amateurs of sunbathing and relaxation will be happy to stroll along the famous pier in Sopot. Torun is a city with one of the most beautiful old towns in Poland.

The former capital of the Teutonic Order State is presnted by guides in period costumes, discovering the secrets of the High Castle, the Middle Castle and the Palace of the Grand Masters.
Although geographically belonging to Pomerania, they are a separate area in terms of culture and cuisine. The inhabitants of this area, Kashubians, are an ethnic group of former Pomeranians, distinguished by a separate dialect and script, rich in colorful folk costumes, songs and original musical instruments. Kashubians are also distinguished by the habit of taking snuff, which has long been rooted in the local tradition, colored with the patterns of horn-shaped snuffboxes.
You can learn about the culture of the Kashubians at the Center for Education and Regional Promotion in Szymbark. It is associated primarily with the Upside Down House, where the labyrinth “goes crazy” while walking on the ceiling.
