Local Attractions

Lower Silesia is one of the most attractive regions of Poland. This region boasts the highest concentration of palaces and castles of any similar-sized region in Europe, most of which have largely been undiscovered by mass tourism.  (Within 3 km of the house incidentally, are 2 palaces and 1 castle.)

 

The mountains draw in those seeking an escape from the tumult of the city, as well as peace and quiet, in a land of high ridges and plains. Active leisure in a region of abandoned castles, dark mysteries, deep forests, and picturesque mountain ranges  is an extraordinary attraction in any season of the year. Numerous foot and bicycle trails lead through the most attractive areas of Lower Silesia. A kayaking trip along the wide and languorous rivers through the region is sure to provide an unforgettable experience. For those who prefer the challenges of extreme sport, numerous climbing trails await. And in winter there are superbly prepared ski runs. Lovers of horseback riding will find open space, forest trails, picturesque valleys and rolling hillsides. Many visitors are attracted by the Karkonosze Mountains, one of the most valued recreational and leisure areas in Poland.
