Our town offers attractive places for leisure and recreation.
The inhabitants and tourists may use the newly-built sports complex at Szpitalna Street. This 40,000-square-meter complex includes two swimming pools: a 25-meter-long sports pool and a recreational one with many attractive features: a 63-meter-long slide, rapids, lashes, massages, and geysers.
Near the complex is the municipal lake – a perfect spot for strolling or cycling on separate bike routes. For those who prefer water sports, the facility offers boat rentals. This is also the ideal place for anglers, who may spend their time performing their favourite activity.
Next to the lake there is a stud farm with the biggest stable in Europe, built in 1877. It is 200 meters long. Contests, tournaments and shows organised here are famous nationwide and even abroad. The Kętrzyn Stud Farm offers horseback riding, carriage rides and the possibility to learn how to ride.
