Photo Gallery » Tourist attractions - Hel Poland

Hel city at the beginning of Poland amazed me with its progressive action :-) The church and military facilities have been turned into museums and tourist attractions - bravo Hel. You can get here by bus line No. 666 3 :-) I like this Hel!
Hel is a small port city located at the end of the Hel Peninsula at the Puck Bay. The town surrounded by the sea, beaches and pine forest has a perfect location for a tourist resort.
