On this journey through Poland’s Pomerania region, next on the hit list fell to the charming town of Pelplin. This is so off the wall, I felt like I had climbed over it. This town has 1 pub, 1 pizzeria, 1 cafe, 1 ice cream shop and 1 hotel. So I checked into it for one night only. I was having a Saturday night and Sunday in the town of Pelplin. Times were hard so this was a religious journey to try and regain my soul, to pray and enjoy my own time again. I backpacked it alone and arrived at the Hotel Nad Wierzycą, the Only Hotel in Pelplin. This was a cool spot for the lonely only backpacker in town. One with a Northern Irish heart. A man who felt the world had crumbled in on him and was ready to end things. But then, a glimmer of hope – Pelplin. Here are a few cool things about this hotel.
1.Right Besdie Pelplin Abbey
I felt spiritual here. The hotel is right beside Pelplin Abbey. This is a truly special place. In room 9, I even overlooked the Abbey and I had a great sleep here and a truly holy time in this town.
Again stating the obvious here but my room was cosy – good shower, and even a TV and air conditioning, not that I ever use either of them.
It was a basic wooden decor and white walls. It felt quite holy and spiritual even on the walk up to my room. There is a Jesus cross in every room as well.
I backpacked through Starogard Gdański, Sopot and Tczew just before this and had been suffering from depression so I needed a peaceful sleep here in Pelplin and I finally got it. I rested my head and awoke fresh and ready to walk to the Jan Pawel Hill on the Sunday morning.
Despite being in a remote place, there is WiFi here. Yes, this came as a surprise to me and I was busy anyway so didn’t use it much, but great to know that the WiFi works fast.
Pelplin was another inspiring and Holy Town on my journeys and I hope to write about the sights there again soon.
Here are some videos from my time in Pelplin:
