The Beskidy Mountains- part II

3 rd April Thursday 2014

Beskidy Mountains is a great place to relax. There are a lot of interesting, picturesque places especially villages so we love love spend weekends there especially in the winter because we love skiing. One of my favourite town is Szczyrk.  It's possible to go skiing thee and have a great dinner. Polish Inn is a great restaurant and an unusual one because it was built without using any nails.

Yummy food is served there

 There are some mountains trails in Szczyrk that are simply a must, such as the hikes to Skrzyczne- the highest peak of the Silesian Beskids 1257 metres and Klimczok 1117 metres. The hostel on Skrzyczne offers accommodation and climbing walk, shooting range, basketball and volleyball pitches.

What a fun



  1. Looks like a beautiful place for a short holiday.

    1. Andrew, you are right but the problem is that during weekends everyone from Upper Silesia wantto escape from metropolis so traffic jkams are awful. Coming back home takes not one hour but two or three. So the best solution is to take a train or a different region.

  2. I bet the views are beautiful from up on the mountains.
    Like the Inn, no nails! So wonder how it's kept together!

    In some areas of Australia in the mountains they have ski lifts but also have artificial snow machines to help in the winter months, as Australia is basically not an alpine country as you would know.

  3. So you must visit Poland to touch a real snow not artificial one. Building without nails is possible it is a special building system one day I will describe it.

  4. That is an interesting and cosy Inn. I saw people building wooden boats without nails. It is a very clever old technique.

  5. This looks like a very fun place, and I love the painted fireplace. I've never seen a fireplace painted with artwork before.

  6. Oh, Gosia, that looks like a wonderful place to visit. I'd love to go to that restaurant, especially!

    Thank you for all your visits to my blog, Gosia. I appreciate them. Susan

  7. It looks beautiful... but, oh, the cold!
