So far, 65 people have drowned since the beginning of July and 179 since the start of April.

Police are calling for holidaymakers to be cautious while the government has warned that swimming is only allowed in marked areas.

The mercury on Monday could climb to 33 degrees Celsius in Poland's southeast, with even hotter weather expected later in the week.
