Once, important trade center. Now, an art center and picturesque touristy town. Located on the bank of Vistula river and surrounded by loess gullies it offers not only historic architecture but also beautiful unique nature.

Did you know that only 35 km from Warsaw you can visit the Castle of the Masovian Dukes, located in Czersk which is one of the oldest strongholds in Mazovia? Actually now it’s only ruins but it’s great idea for one day biking trip which includes also nice surrounding fruit orchards.
One of my first thoughts when I visited Czerwińsk nad Wisłą was that it looks like open air museum. Wooden houses from 19th century and a monastery from 12th century is what makes this village unique.
Last winter 15 tourists died in Tatra Mountains. What to do, to not share their fate and be safe in winter in this mountain range? Read few things, I learned on winter mountaineering course.
Do you like mushrooms? What about mushroom rocks? :) It’s aggregation of rocks which shape resembles mushrooms, in Stołowe Mountains (Table mountains). Close to this area you can see also the peat bog Niknąca Łąka – another attraction of this National Park.
Stołowe Mountains (Table Mountains) is low mountain range in Sudetes, characterised by unusual rock formations. I propose you 28 km hike, during which you will see one of the best places in Stołowe Mountains National Park.
One of the best known places in Polish Bieszczady is Wetlińska Polonyna and Chatka Puchatka (eng. The House at Pooh Corner) – the highest mountain hut in this mountain range. Hiking trails to these places are easy, suitable also for children and elderly. If you like to soak up views at low altitudes, come to Poland and see this part of Bieszczady :)
Bieszczady Mountains are known for their wide open polonynas – meadows located in the upper zone of mountains. They offer beautiful landscapes at low altitudes which makes them accessible even for people with not the best condition. One of places worth to visit is Caryńska Polonyna in Bieszczady National Park.
