Mountain weather can be unpredictable. Fortunately, the rain outside the window does not have to spoil our holiday plans. Szczyrk and its surroundings offer a variety of attractions that are perfect for less favorable weather. Among them are suggestions for art lovers, those looking for relaxation, fans of water fun, and more. We recommend how to have an exciting time in the mountains during bad weather!
Beskidzka Art Gallery – for those interested in painting
On a rainy day, we recommend visiting the Beskid Art Gallery. Bator Art Gallery is the most extensive private art gallery in southern Poland. Its collection includes mainly contemporary paintings and ceramics by more than 130 leading artists. The facility also hosts regular art encounters with lectures, workshops, and author evenings.
Brine graduation towers – well-deserved relaxation
When the weather is unfavorable, it is worth taking care of your health. The brine graduation towers in the Central Sports Centre – Olympic Preparations Centre in Szczyrk are ideal. There you will find a Crystal Salt Chamber made of natural rock salt crystals. A session in the graduation tower is an excellent way to strengthen immunity. Which we encourage, especially in autumn and winter, during increasingly cold and often rainy days.
Sanctuaries in Szczyrk – sights of the Beskid resort
While staying in the mountain town on a rainy day, we recommend looking at its most famous monuments. This is the so-called Górka. Sanctuary of Our Lady Queen of Poland. It is located at an altitude of 670 meters above sea level, by the blue trail leading to Klimczok. On the Wooden Architecture Route, in turn, is St. Jacob’s Church. This is the oldest architectural monument in Szczyrk at over 200 years old.
Aquapark – water madness on a rainy day
For lovers of water adventures on a rainy day, stay in the mountains, we recommend the indoor swimming pool in Szczyrk. The ticket price also includes access to the jacuzzi. Children and adults will also have a lot of fun in the Tropicana water complex. It is located in the Gołębiewski Hotel in Wisła. There is a 25-meter swimming pool, a 20-meter leisure pool with waves and water spouts, a pool with hydro-massage, and a paddling pool for children. Saunas and whirlpools complete the resort’s offer.
Przystanek Góry – attractions of the mountain resort
An unforgettable time in the Beskydy despite the erratic weather? Our Przystanek Góry comes to the rescue of holidaymakers. It provides the perfect starting point for a holiday filled with mountain hikes and discovering the area’s beauty on rainy days. A colorful playroom, arranged in a living room with a fireplace, awaits our youngest guests. Their parents will also find an atmospheric space.
As soon as the rain stops and the sun emerges from behind the clouds, we encourage you to discover Szczyrk actively. A cable car to Skrzyczne, an ascent of Klimczok, the surrounding caves, biking trails, or walks along the path by the Żylica River. These are just a few suggestions you cannot miss in your plan for a stay in Beskid Śląski. Finally, after an eventful day, we encourage you to rest comfortably in Przystanek Góry.
