The career of Bieg Piastów

In this place every year a ski festival is held. A kind of tribute to this area not accessible until the end of the 2nd World War, when only people with permission and perfectly equipped was authorized to travel these trails. Now this place is famous for hosting the world's most important background races comparable to those in Sweden. The idea was to create a great ski event, a mass event and they have succeeded. Nowadays it is increasingly difficult to find parking if you do not arrive with enough time in advance and the truth is that it is completely understandable. In this place the trails are beautiful, the sections that the race runs are well worth a visit, even if at another time, with less crowds. The atmosphere is very pleasant, friendly and supportive and people flock to practice outdoor sports, to be in contact with nature and enjoy good company. You can find information about the routes and distances on the website and assess whether you are prepared for the longer races or those that are offered a little shorter.

Shkliarsky waterfall

Located in the interior of the national park Mount of the Giants of Poland, this waterfall is the second largest in the country. It is located at an altitude of 520 meters above sea level and the waterfall it produces is 13.3 meters. It has the peculiarity that falling makes a kind of conical spiral that makes it a waterfall, at least, picturesque. In the 19th century a small dam was built in this place that led to a decrease in the water level. But in addition, in the park, many other things can be observed considering that it covers 36,000 hectares and that it is also the cradle of the Elbe River.

Monuments in the vicinity

If you decide to make a break around the city you can find many monuments of high historical value. Most of them for the years that makes them are built and others in addition, so they assume the history of this place.

And from the same time the Church of the Immaculate Heart of Mary decorated with a pulpit Baroque, antique chandeliers and paintings by Wlastimil Hofman.

Sleds pulled by dogs

It is one of the few Polish cities that maintain this tradition, in addition to presenting ideal conditions for this practice thanks to the trails that exist in the mountains of Jizera and to which the winter climate continues until the end of spring. Thanks to this climate these breeds of dogs feel here at home and makes having them in this environment is totally pleasant for them. For all these reasons, being able to see a sled dog race can be a wonderful experience, one that reminds you of Christmas tales and winter fairies. It is a very special activity that can be seen in a few places. Take the chance. More information: www.szklarskaporeba.pl
