Kayaking in DrawnoLubuszland was not always a part of Poland, being made a part of the Holy Roman Empire in 1226 and a part of the Empire of Germany until the conquest of Eastern Germany in 1945. Over the next few years, the previous population was gradually dispelled and replaced with Polish people from central and Eastern Poland.

As with the Kuyavian-Pomeranian Voivodeship, Lubusz contains areas from the historic regions of two different Voivodeships, in this case Lubuszland and Silesia, and has two functioning capital cities who share the duties that this title entails. Gorzów Wielkopolski, the seat of the centrally appointed governor, is believed to be over 800 years old, and boasts a great many historical churches and buildings, most notably, the Garden Castle Museum, which hosts an impressive collection of zinc metal ware and contemporary artworks. Zielona Góra, the seat of the elected regional assembly is celebrated for its grape-vines, grown there since the 1200?s, and is home to several attractive 18th century houses for the architecture enthusiast, however, its most striking historic buildings must be the Old Town Hall, built in the 16th century and the Gothic Tower of Hunger, so called because of the bastion which had previously served as a prison until the 19th century.

As well as a rich historic tradition and stunning architecture, Lubusz, like many other regions in Poland, enjoys glorious landscapes and had several National Parks created to protect their countryside, for example The Mużakowski National Park is listed on the World Cultural Heritage List for its beautiful sample of 19th-century European art of gardening as well as it?s forests and lakes. In the town Drawno there is a water sports centre for those less interested in a relaxing break and looking for an adrenaline rush, which included facilities for hiking, kayaking and cycling. There are also a number of elegant hotels to recuperate in, the village of Brody housing a magnificent converted palace for those looking to be treated like royalty.
