Zwardoń in the Żywiec Beskid is known primarily for
recreational values. Its “career" as a tourist resort began in
the 1930s, when skiers from all over Poland took a fancy for
the slopes of the surrounding mountains. And today, the
village is famous for its excellent skiing conditions, and it is
also worthwhile to see remnants of the old buildings,
including the nineteenth-century railway station, and the
interwar hostel "Dworzec Beskidzki" and guest house
Mount Rachowiec is not a high mountain (954 m), but it is
popular among tourists in the range of Wielka Racza,
towering over the tourist resort village of Zwardoń.
The attractiveness of Rachowiec is caused by a ski
center operating on its slopes. It has the longest
chairlift in this area and the longest ski run (1,200 m).
On the northern slopes of Rachowiec, there is a nature
The reserve "Butorza" is located in the
vicinity of Sól, a village in the
commune of Rajcza, on the slopes of
Mount Rachowiec (954 m). It was
established in 1961 to protect primarily a
submontane spruce forest, with beautiful
specimens of Istebna spruce, which often
reaches here over 35 meters in height and
50 cm in diameter at breast height. In the
reserve, we can encounter a rich beech
forest. The local woods are from time to
time visited by large predators - wolves
The southern corners of the Silesian voivodeship with such villages as Istebna, Koniaków or Laliki are one of the most picturesque areas of Poland. It is also the region which for a long time has attracted lovers of wooden architecture and folk art. One of the pearls of these areas is a church in Laliki, which is situated in the hamlet of Pochodzita. The church belongs to the monuments lying on the Wooden Architecture Trail of the Silesia province.
Sól is a charming village in the Słanica river valley, in the very heart of the Żywiec Beskid. In the village, there are a few traditional highland wooden log cottages. However, the most interesting monument is a wooden belfry from 1837, which stands on the main road. It is a post and beam construction covered with shingles. In the middle, there is a turret cast by Leopold Franciszek Stanki from Olomouc in the nineteenth century.
If a natural disaster happens that destroys all the trees in the Carpathian Mountains, a special task unit will take action. It is the Wyrchczadeczka Carpathian Gene Bank in Jaworzynka. The devastated forests will be brought to life thanks to the precious seeds of the Istebna spruce collected in the gene bank. It is, moreover, not the only secret of Jaworzynka. In the aviary on display one can see how they look after the capercaillie in Polish forests. For many, it may be a surprise to visit the Museum of Spruce.
