Henkenhagen / Ustronie Morskie
Continuing in our long-running series of images of Old Poland here we publish three pre-war images of the village of Ustronie Morskie (former Henkenhagen), near Kołobrzeg, in Western Pomerania (Pommern / zachodniopomorskie).
Three interesting facts about Ustronie Morskie:
- the name Ustronie Morskie translates as ‘quiet little place by the sea’.
- the oldest oak-tree in Poland, known as ‘Boleslaw’, can be found just outside the village.
- Ustronie Morskie has a population of around 1,800.
