The region attractions

1. The great Brda canal – artificial canal from the XIX century; 21 km long; 1,5 m depth; today very nice canoeing trails.

 

2. The Fojutowo aqueduct19th century aqueduct offering the possibility to walk under the running river. The energy of water formed the twisting and turning river valleys in the lowland part of the region, and inspired the man to build an aqueduct which transports the waters of the Great Brda Canal over the Czerska Struga. This majestic, unique in Europe, two-level watercourse crossing is an element of massively expanded system used for irrigating meadows.

 

3. Tuchola and around
Tuchola was founded by the Kashubian dukes at the beginning of the 13th century. The origins of the town’s name are still somewhat obscure. An enduring legend has it that ‘tu hola’ were two words uttered by a Pomeranian duke who ordered his army to stop there. According to another legend around year 1200 Pomeranian Duke Sambor I (ca. 1160-1207) handed a foundation document to a man called Tuchol, giving him official permision to establish the town, later named Tuchola.
Tuchola, a town located on the Brda’s tributary Kicza in the north of the Province of Kuyavia and Pomerania is an administrative, economic and commercial centre of the district, presently numbering around 15 thousand people.
The original Old Town layout from the turn of the 14th c. as well as the fragments of the city walls running along Okrężna, Murowa and Nowodworskiego streets are Tuchola’s greatest assets. Regrettably, the Gothic Teutonic castle did not survive until these days and at the foot of the castle the starost’s seat was erected.
The Old Town is the obvious place to start looking around, and it’s the Market Square with historic buildings dated mainly from the 19th c. that provides the focal point. The church of St. Bartholomew, until 1940 a huge decoration of the square, was dismantled brick by brick by Nazis in 1940. The Churches of Corpus Christi and of St. James majestically tower over the town. The interior of the modernistic Church of Corpus Christi hides treasures from the St. Bartholomew church, among others: a Baroque confessional, St. Barbara’s image and a manneristic box commissioned by queen Constancia, the second wife of king Sigismund III Waza.
The Museum of the Tuchola Forest at Podgórna St., housed in the former beer bottling plant from the latter half of the 19th c. has a lot of appeal. Inevitably, the exhibitions focus on Tuchola’s turbulent history and flora and fauna of the region. The life of past generations populating the region is vividly portrayed in priceless artworks and a miscellany of items.
