Quicksands

Almost 300 thousand persons visit quicksands in Leba every year. Everybody aims at getting to the top of Lacka Mountain, which, with its more than 30 meters of height, is the most attractive of all dunes within the precincts of SNP. From its summit a visitor may admire the enchanting vista of Leba Spit, and the dead forest buried under sands emerges to the south. Before World War 2 Germans built a gliding school in the vicinity of the hill and Africa Korps, which later, commanded by Erwin Rommel, prevailed over the British in Northern Africa in 1940, trained here.
