Green and safe
Even though the municipality of Psary is situated close to major roads, the vast majority of residential areas is located within a safe distance from them. Along with the surrounding meadows and forests it creates a pleasant green corner, isolated from noise and landscape of industrial areas. Forests, parks and nearby lakes provide high quality of life and enable unrestrained contact with nature. They also lend to stress-free life. It is worth adding that the commune is dominated by single-family houses which perfectly integrate with the agricultural landscape.
The commune is surrounded on three sides by lakes and forests. To the east there are Pogoria III and IV lakes with beaches and paths for cycling and in-line skating. This area has well developed recreational infrastructure which gets better every year. To the west from Psary there is Rogoźnik lake and a little farther famous Świerklaniec Lake. To the north you can find Przeczycko-Siewierski lake famous for good sailing conditions.
