EUROPE TRIATHLON CUP (ELITE AND JUNIOR) 29th May 2021
Olsztyn is the largest city and the capital of region of Warmia and Mazury. In the city of 650 years history live over 170 thousands people. Most famous monuments of Olsztyn are gothic castle, Cathedral of Saint Jacob and Upper Gate located on the boarder of old city walls.
The biggest advantage of the city is its unique location among the forests and the lakes. 12 (and some people say that even 15!) lakes and City Forest – one of the biggest European park are located within the borders of Olsztyn. To accent those advantages, the vision of Olsztyn development extracts to the conception of city garden. The defensive architecture of the XIV-century’s Warmia, unrepeatable XIX- and XX-century secession and interesting performances, concerts and exhibitions – all of that cause tourists, who want cameral atmosphere and tranquillity, to seek in Olsztyn the possibility of the escape from the daily routine’s noise. Strolling through the streets of the Old City they may admire the rests of city walls, castle’s massive construction or overlooking the buildings cathedral’s copula. Facing the original astronomical plaque (totally unique hand-made by Nicolaus Copernicus!) they have a chance to feel the blow of the history and later discover its present “face” at Olsztyn’s planetarium.
Nicolaus Copernicus is the most famous person in the history of Olsztyn, where he managed goods and defended the city from Teutonic forces. Here he carried out his great researches and wrote magnificent works. Today four Olsztyn’s colleges maintain this science tradition. Over 45 thousands people study in the largest of them – University of Warmia and Mazury.
Olsztyn is worth visiting – genuinely “Naturally Garden!”.
