At first glance Parys seems like a sleepy little town with not much going on. You may remember that somebody said there’s a river and maybe it was on TV that somebody else said it’s near a World Heritage Site. This will mean fishing, some water sport, camping and a visit to the heritage site. First of all you will need a decent place to stay which also means it is time to visit www.parys.info, contact the Parys Info Office at 056 811 4000, or send a E-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
