A popular tourist centre and ski resort, people come from within Poland and from outside to enjoy the mountain air, views, shopping, nightlife and skiing.

The snowy skiing season is essentially New Year until the end of March.

May is an excellent time to visit Poland when trees and flowers are blooming and the weather is pleasantly warm during the day, cooler at night.

Poland is an enormous country, mainly rural, covered in extensive forests. It takes a day to cross from one side to the other so its good to know where you would like to focus your attention.

There are rivers and good fishing, quiet paths and roads for horse riding, mountain bikes and quad bikes.
