Kashubia

Koscierzyna

share

The town of Kościerzyna was first mentioned as Costerina in 1282 and is as close as it gets in Kashubia to being an industrial city. A large porcelain factory in nearby Łubiana, which creates a lot of employment for the town, gives Kościerzyna an almost working class feel. Its Rynek looks a bit tatty these days but it’s a nice enough place to stop for a quick drink, and there are a number of things to see and do to take up an hour or two of your time. As well as the sights listed here, it's also worth seeing the stylised monument to the Young Kashubian activist Aleksander Majkowski (1876-1938), which can be found in a small park just northeast of the Rynek.
