Reszel acts as a perfect base to explore the wilds of Warmia and Mazuria. Hitler’s Wolfschanze bunker complex lies 30km to the east, and more Nazi fortifications can be explored 19km further at Mamerki. It’s here the German landforces held there command post. Tourism of a less sinister style can be conducted in the town of Ryn, itself equipped with an impressive hotel/castle, while six kilometres south east of Reszel don’t miss the chance to visit the Jesuit monastrey in Święta Lipka. The miracle inducing figure of St. Mary has been attracting pilgrims since 1473, though just as many people visit to marvel at the lavish baroque architecture – possibly the best example of this style in Poland.
