It is also a major tourist centre with several million people visiting every year to relax on the sandy beaches of Sopot, to enjoy the charm and atmosphere of old Gdansk and the attractions of modern Gdynia. The surrounding area includes the Kashubian Lakes with their picturesque countryside close to Postołowo. The Postołowo area itself is blessed with the sandy soil every golf superintendent dreams of. The native vegetation is beech wood with oak and plantations of pine.
Being the second largest city in Poland, the Tri-City area has very strong links. Germany, Denmark, the U.K and Scandinavia are only one to two hours away by plane with several flights daily to many of their cities.
