Jamno Lake Sandbar

Mielno village [2]. City is also localised on first (only one) dune ridge [1], since 1996 protected by heavy concrete band with tetrpods [1a]. Old groins are visible [7]. A lot of people are "covering" the beach. Restaurants, shops and promenade [6 - red line] are completely covering dune here. Dune plants are absent in Mielno.

Unieście village [3]. Old fishery village, with fishery harbour [5]. Now it is famous touristic resort (not known yet 20 years ago), it is localised on narrow sandbar between Jamno Lake [4] and Baltic Sea. There are narrow dunes cutted off by storms with rare dune plants and pine trees on the ridge but also with protected areas against storms (near fishery harbour). Low laying areas (wet, lake overflow area, [9]) of Mielno and Unieście are nowadays build-up. New houses are builded very fast and they are like ugly cube with concrete roads around.
In NE direction sandbar is shrinking (500, 300 to 200m). There are few military areas localised on the dunes. At the end of Jamno Lake Sandbar is localised another village Łazy - small one [8]. (postcards: Kamera publish.).
