If you should embark on a houseboat cruise in this wonderful area you will have the opportunity of seeing and experiencing old castles in towns like Gizycko, Ryn, and Worgorzeno. There are formidable ruins here that will delight every house boat traveller. Visit the mighty castle of Fort Boyen, for instance, and get a glimpse of Poland’s impressive history. On the shore of the Mamry Lake you can find Wegorzewo, a small but attractive town. It lies only some 13 miles from the Russian border.
