Szczyrk, known as the ski capital of Poland, has plenty of attractions to offer – also in the summer. In winter, the town attracts skiing fans, in the holiday season tempts with active rest on the trail and off it. Various attractions await visitors to Beskid Śląski. Among them, mountain hiking enthusiasts, sightseeing fans, as well as supporters of blissful rest, which awaits in Przystanek Góry, will find something for themselves.
Summer on a mountain trail
Summer holidays in Szczyrk are ideal for less and more experienced hikers. The picturesque area of the Beskid Śląski Mountains is a real treat for hiking enthusiasts who will find perfectly marked trails offering excellent views. We recommend in particular Skrzyczne, towering over the town – 1257 m above sea level and belonging to the Crown of Polish Mountains, to which the blue trail leads. Apart from Skrzyczne, a climb to Klimczok and trips to the Salmopol Pass, Malinowska Skała, and the Karkoszczonka Pass are also worthwhile.
Discovering the charms of Szczyrk
Szczyrk is famous for its many mountain trails of varying difficulty, but not only. Apart from hiking, many other attractions are waiting for those who spend their holidays here. In particular, we recommend a summer walk along the promenade by the Żylica River – fans of active leisure can also explore this restored space by running, Nordic walking or cycling. The trail starts at the Town Hall and runs along the Żylica River to the square in the centre, and then past the Central Sports Centre to Buczkowice. Another must-see during your holiday in Szczyrk is a visit to the complex of three ski jumps located on the northern slope of Skalite Mountain. We recommend a stop at the Eliksir stud farm for parents with children, situated at the foot of the Skalite and Skrzyczne mountains, where children can take a ride on a lunge. For those hungry for culinary experiences, we recommend a visit to the climatic Polish Tavern with traditional decor, regional dishes and the sounds of highlander music. By the way, it is also worth visiting the nearby town of Wisła, which offers fantastic walking routes, rides on the Wisła Train and attractions related to Adam Małysz.
Attractions of the Przystanek Góry
A summer stay in Szczyrk will be long remembered by those craving for close contact with nature, but not only. There are also great attractions waiting for those staying at the Przystanek Góry. We have prepared a special holiday package valid from June to September. Apart from comfortable accommodation and delicious breakfasts, we have taken care of our guests’ free time. In the extensive garden, we have created a special relaxation zone with deckchairs, where you can breathe in the pure mountain air and regenerate after a hike. In the atmospheric gazebo, we organise bonfires with sausage roasting in the evenings. The children’s hearts will be stolen by the outdoor recreation area with its slides, mini football and badminton courts and a swimmimg pool.
