Summer 2022 attractions in Szczyrk

Although Szczyrk is sometimes referred to as the ski capital of Poland, visiting tourists are offered plenty of attractions at any time of the year. However, especially in summer, the mountain town, which attracts fans of snow activities, tempts by the possibility of active recreation – both on and off the numerous mountain trails. So what attractions await you during your vacation in Beskid Slaski?

Beskid Szczyrk trails – ideal for summer trips

Szczyrk is the perfect place for a vacation, especially for mountain hikers. Among the many trails, both less and more experienced hikers will find something for themselves. Unforgettable views will provide them with a route to Skrzyczne, towering over the town – 1257 m above sea level, a mountain belonging to the Crown of Polish Mountains, to which a blue trail leads from the city. In the plan of active vacations in the mountains, we recommend including a climb to Klimczok. And trips to the Salmopolska Pass, Malinowska Skała and Karkoszczonka Pass.

Caves in and around Szczyrk – a respite from the summer heat

The caves in Szczyrk are an exciting alternative to the area’s most popular attractions. Especially on hot days, you will find pleasant refreshments in the underground caves. For lovers of underground hiking, we recommend visiting the Ice Cave, which refers to the fairy-tale ice stalactites covering its walls. We strongly encourage both inexperienced tourists and families with children to see it. Short at only 32 meters, the cave can be explored without belay or specialized equipment. One of the more popular caves in Szczyrk is the Malinowska Cave, to which two trails lead. The red one from Salamopolska Pass and the green one from Szczyrk Solisko to Malinow. The time required to visit this cave is about 3 hours.

Promenade on the Żylica River – walks along the scenic route by the river

The promenade over the Żylica River in Szczyrk is one of the many local attractions and a charming place that simply must be visited during a summer stay in these areas. Proponents of active recreation can also explore this restored space by running, marching with Nordic walking poles or riding a bicycle. The path begins at City Hall and runs along the Żylica River to the square in the center. It continues past the Central Sports Center all the way to Buczkowice.
