Bunkers – Meeting Park with History
It’s not just military enthusiasts who can experience an interesting choice of free time activities while exploring Blücher Bunkers. This German fortification is located on the western side of the Ustka port. The underground shelters can be explored individually or with a guide. The History Meeting Park was created here – a multimedia gallery showing the daily life of soldiers stationed in bunkers. The events that took place during the war in Ustka and its vicinity were shown on interactive screens and three-dimensional photos. In the summer season, you can also take advantage of an additional attraction – the shooting range.

The youngest visitors will definitely get captured by the dinosaur skeleton at the end of the hundred-meter long corridor.

The Amber Museum
The museum presents a large collection of various amber. Here you can see specimens caught from the sea, found in the fields, sea rock nuggets with barnacles, characteristic specimens called drops or the so-called “horseman’s pick”. The largest rock nugget on display in the facility weighs as much as 1,776 grams. Collections are presented in nine thematic rooms. Among them one may find a room devoted to inclusions (both animal and plant), a cinema room (where a 20-minute film is played), an amber forest, a room with utility exhibits or one where you can see the largest and most interesting specimens. The youngest tourists will probably enjoy the workshop room, where they can try their hand at amber processing (children can grind and polish the amber nuggets). Very interesting are utility exhibits gathered here, e.g. various pendants, ornaments, rosaries, paintings or even pipes. In the course of exploring, we will learn methods for checking the authenticity of amber, when to look for it and how to recognize it, ways of processing amber in the past and how it is done today.
