    If you're looking to experience the best of Karkonosze mountains in southwestern Poland, a hike to Śnieżka is a must!!

    Dramatic landscapes, demanding trail, rewarding views, absolutely terrific experience, all of it guaranteed when you're scaling the highest peak of Karkonosze in Dolny Slask, Poland.

    Sniezka (Polish), Sněžka (Czech), Schneekoppe (German) is the highest point of the Karkonosze (Giant) Mountains and the whole Sudetes 1602 m n.p.m. The summit is the highest point in the Czech Republic, in Lower Silesian Voivodeship, in the Giant Mountains and in the entire Sudetes. At the top, they have an meteorological observatory, a post office with a view, cafe, and a souvenir shop. If you're up for something of that sort, just know that it's perfectly doable. Just be double sure about the weather in Karkonosze.

    There is a pleasant walk to the church.

    A Swedish painter in Germany, Johan Dahl, bought the church to prevent its demolition. He then persuaded Frederick William IV of Prussia to take it over and it was transported via Szczeczin to Berlin.
    Owing to the involvement of Countess Frederica von Reden of Bukowiec, in the spring of 1842 the church was moved to the Karkonosze Mountains so that it could be of use to the Lutherans living in Karpacz and its surroundings. The church therefore journeyed on barges along the river Odra to be later hauled by nine horse wagons.
    The building site for the church was presented by Count Christian Leopold von Schaffgotsch of Cieplice. It is a slope of Czarna Góra (885 metres above sea level), midway between lower Karpacz and Mount Śnieżka.

    The church itself is a remarkable construction with no Iron nails used. The wooden pillars inside could have been from Viking boats and the intricate wooden carving is a delight. A charming small cemetery and a good view of Mt. Śnieżka, plus a base for hiking trails.

    Regardless of the amount of time you can spend in the area, this is an absolute must!
    Interactive show with sound( some of which you are encouraged to create on your own), suggestive lights, touch screens, very engaged personnel, convenient location with a cafe upstairs and a souvenir shop on the ground floor.
    Security measures put in place at all times!👏🏻.
    We will definitely recommend it to our friends.

    One of many beautiful waterfalls in Karkonosze Mountains. Can be very busy during summer months but worth a visit. Easy access.

    Small group of rocks close to the main ridge in Karkonosze mountain, with superb view, basically 360 degrees. Absolutely best way to get there is to hike from schronisko Śląski Dom to the west, following red trail, called Główny Szlak Sudecki, which is the longest trail in Polish Sudetes mountains. If you do that hike, you will walk right on the edges of two major post-glacial cirques with lakes in both of them. Słonecznik is also a junction of two other trail, a yellow and green ones - both leave different starting points in the town of Karpacz, then cross each other in place called Polana, and from there, again following different paths (the yellow one passes another fantastic group of rocks called Pielgrzymy), so they can be used as a round trip from Karpacz. But be aware, that some trails are likely to be closed for some parts of the year, due to different subjects of nature protection (the green trail for the whole of April and May, due to protection of black grouse), also the red trail follows different path in winter, as it would be too dangerouos to walk on huge amounts of snow overhanging the ridges o mentioned cirques.

    Complete disappointment! A waste of time and money. Don't be mislead by its name - it has nothing to do with fairy tales or cartoons. It's rather a small outdoor playground you pay for!

    This small Museum created in 1995 from the collection of Henryk Tomaszewski, a famous Polish choreographer. The collection presents toys since the eighteenth century until the twentieth century, including the dolls from Japan, Mexico, Australia and other countries.

    This is a good place to visit with kids during rainy day. The collection of toys is very beautiful and inspring. The only problem is the fact that the museum has a convenctional and traditional character: all toys are behind glass windoss, and you are not allowed to touch those which are exposed. Kids are quickly bored, and actually adults are more interested. I am wondering why they do not open interactive section, where kids can play with the toys. All instructions are in Polish.

    Płace is rather small, however it is packed with content! Lots of old and unusual consoles and computers, some connected and playable as classics like contra or street fighter. Entrance is under 10,- per person if you come in a bigger group. I would recommend if you dig such stuff.

    One of the last shelters with a soul.
    Unfortunately, it loses a lot because of quarrel between the owners and PTTK.
    Lack of electricity rewarded with nice service.
    Located at the route Kotłem Łomniczki to Śnieżka, it gives you a moment of rest at the final climb.
