Jarosławiec, a fishing village and a seaside resort of Central
Pomerania. It has one of the loveliest beaches on the Polish Baltic.
The first written information about Jarosławiec (know this time
as Garzhouede) was in 1459.
Populations is about 500. Jarosławiec lies alongside a cliff shore
near two nice lakes: Lake Wicko (area 1,059 ha with depth up to 6.1 m)
and Lake Kopań (area 790 ha with a depth up to 3.9 m). The area is a
favourite place for anglers practising sport fishing. There are old
fishermens cottages of wooden clay design, and a lighthouse dating
from 1829, heighten in 1853 and 1902.
Many modern hotels and tourist complexes have been built in Jarosławiec
in response to the demands of the tourist industry. Popular hiking
trials lead to Lake Wicko.
The catch, from fishing boats, is sold directly to consumers from the
boat or to middlemen who distribute the fish within a wider area.
