A Fiat 125 and pedestrians in the centre of Międzyrzecz, c.1985.
Notable attractions in Miedzyrzecz include a moated castle built by King Casimir the Great, and the former residence of the starosta dating from 1719 next to the castle. This now houses the town's museum, which includes a unique collection of coffin paintings from the 17th and 18th centuries. Nearby is the castle gatehouse, which now houses the tourist information office and a rather nice cafe bar.
The area around Miedzyrzecz, like most of the province of Lubuskie, is heavily forested and is rich in wildlife from white storks and wild mushrooms to woodpeckers and wild boar. The Międzyrzecz district also has numerous lakes suitable for swimming, canoeing and kayaking, and fishing.
