Lipki Wielkie is a village 20 km east of Gorzow Wlkp. It is situated on the edge of the NoteŠ valley and the NoteŠ Forest.
Between 1940 and 1945 there was a prisoner of war soldiers camp which had its headquarters at Stalag IIIc in Drzewice.
In Lipki today, we can visit neo-Romanesque church from the beginning of XX century and a stone obelisk built by inhabitants for Polish revolutionary J. Marchlewski.
There is also a palace surrounded by a park.Around the village of Lipki there are many things which nature fans can do. These attractions include: walking in the forests, picking mushrooms, berries and swimming in the crystal clear nearby lakes. In fact the whole of this part of Lubuskie offers visitors the chance to really escape from the 21st century! If one is a fan of horses then one can find horse-riding in a few farms near Lipki.
