Mechowskie Grottos



These pseudo-karst formations are a protected natural reserve, due to their unique character. They were formed in the last ice age by glacial deposits.


FEATURES, ORIGINS, VALUES AND LEGAL PROTECTION
Mechowo, the Kaszubian village located in the Darzlubska Forest, conceals the small but famous caves known as Mechowskie Grottos. They are the most peculiar inanimate nature feature of the Polish Lowlands or even the European Lowlands. They are rare formations that have originated from glacial sediments during the most recent glaciation.
The cave, which was formed due to an accumulation of glacial deposits, was discovered in 1818.
In 1910, the district council in Prussia bought area and restored the grottos. Their popularity as a tourist attraction has lasted from that time till today.
The total length of its passageways is now 61m of which only a small portion is made available to the public.
The cave along with its surrounding area, a total of 750m² is a today considered a nature reserve.
