Moving sand dunes in Leba

Moving sand dunes are located about 100 kilometres from Gdansk towards the north, near small city Leba. This is a sandy area close to the sea, that moves with the wind, with the average speed of several metres per year. So although dunes will not move in front of your eyes, if you look closely, you will see how the grains of sand are captured by the wind and moved – this is how the process takes place. Going to Leba is a good idea if you have a spare weekend, or plan to go towards Szczecin on your trip to Poland.
