About 25 km. northeast of Gorzow Wielkopolski lies the town of Strzelce Krajenskie (pop. 7,500), which boasts almost intact medieval defensive walls from the 14th century, with gates, towers and a Gothic church from the same period. Unfortunately other parts of Strzelce, which date from post 1945, most observers probably wouldn't find particularly attractive. However, east of Strzelce Krajenskie stretches the huge Drawska Forest with many lakes and a beautiful valley of one of the cleanest rivers in Poland, the Drawa.
