Przywidz, Przywidzkie lakes and the surrounding area are one of my favorite places in Kashubia in northern Poland. The village is beautifully situated in a valley by two lakes and surrounded by beech forests. This location was appreciated already two thousand years before our era - traces of settlements from the Stone Age were found in the vicinity of Przywidz. To this day, numerous kurgan cemeteries and the remains of the early medieval stronghold have survived in the surrounding forests.

There you can clearly see the location of the village, which is surrounded by hills and forests. In the foreground: a promenade by the lake, the European Union Primary School, a sports and entertainment hall and sports fields.
The lakes of Przywidzkie Małe and Wielkie are connected with each other by an isthmus and have a total length of almost 4.5 kilometers.
Arena Przywidz at 1a Szkolna Street is a sports and entertainment hall. There are basketball, volleyball and handball fields in the arena.
The Zielona Brama (Green Gate) is a well-known place on the tourist map of Kashubia. There is a guest house, restaurant, dumplings, wedding hall, horse stud and a ski center.

The island nature reserve on the Lake Przywidzkie Wielki covers an area of approximately 4.5 hectares. There is a beech and oak forest on the island. Some of the trees that grow here are over 180 years old.
It is worth visiting Przywidz at any time of the year. In summer, you can have a nice time at the beach and bathing area on Lake Przywidzkie Wielkie.

Przywidz in autumn and its surroundings is a perfect place for walking, running, nordic walking, cycling and horse riding.
There are remains of an early medieval settlement on this peninsula.
Beech forests, growing on the shores of the lakes, look amazing in autumn.
In the fall, the beech and oak forest on the island sparkles with an endless amount of colors!
And what can you write here - nature and autumn are a magical combination - you can only look and admire ...
There is a beautiful 7.5 kilometer long walking route around the Przywidzkie Wielkie lake. You can walk, run or ride a bike there. It is the perfect place to admire the golden Polish autumn.
The cold winter in Przywidz is the perfect time for skiing in a ski resort or ice skating on frozen lakes.

More technically advanced drones such as the DJI Mavic Pro can fly and photograph in sub-zero temperatures. Their operating temperature range is from -10 to 40 Celsius degrees. Cheaper drones, e.g. DJI Air or DJI Air 2, are not designed to fly in sub-zero temperatures. The manufacturer states that the operating temperature range of these drones is from 0 to 40 Celsius degrees (32 to 104 F). If you want to fly on a frosty day, you do it at your own risk. But to be honest, the only problem I noticed when flying DJI Air in winter at minus 10 Celsius degrees is the speed of battery discharge. In addition, it is very important that the batteries are warm before take-off. It is worth keeping them in the inner pocket and inserting them into the drone just before turning it on and taking off.
The "Green Gate" (Zielona Brama) Ski Resort in Przywidz. The resort has a floodlit and artificially snowed ski slope with a length of 900 meters with 2 T-bar lifts. There is a ski and snowboard rental, service, ski school and an inn by the slope.

There is a specific microclimate in the vicinity of Przywidz. In winter it is always a few degrees lower than in Gdańsk or Gdynia.
