The Andrzej Podżorski Beskid Museum in Wisła

Even a few decades ago, a highland village in the Carpathians was a wooden village. At the beginning of the twenty-first century, traditional building is going into the paSt The Andrzej Podżorski Beskid Museum in Wisła wants to recreate what the Beskid village looked like in the past. Therefore, in 2010, the museum opened (in addition to its headquarters) an enclave of the wooden buildings with a forge, a tenant farmer’s hut, a mountain lodge, and an apiary. These objects stand near the old inn called "At the Bear" and a cottage from Jonidło.
The faithful of the Lutheran Church have always constituted the majority of the inhabitants of Wisła. So it was at the turn of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, when the first settlers came to the area of Barania Góra. So it is at the beginning of the 21st century. The main center of life of the congregation in the oldest part of Wisła is the church of Apostles Peter and Paul, which belongs to the Evangelical-Augsburg parish embracing the town center. The historic church of the nineteenth century is accompanied by a former rectory and school.
W Galerii u Niedźwiedzia działa Stowarzyszenie Grupy Twórców Wiślanie. Organizacja ta zrzesza artystów - amatorów i nielicznych profesjonalistów, którzy mieszkają w Wiśle. Na wystawie stałej w galerii można obejrzeć przekrój dokonań plastycznych, który jest zróżnicowany zarówno pod względem użytych technik jak i tematyki. Wyszczególnić należy jednak wiele pejzaży opiewających piękno beskidzkiego krajobrazu.
Wisla is both a popular Beskid resort and the place sort of cult of its most famous inhabitant, Adam Małysz, whose successes, for about a decade, aroused the admiration of his ski jumping fans. In 2001, members of the Polish Association of Confectioners honored the champion from Wisła by making his life-size statue of white chocolate. We can see it in the lobby of the Spa House, located in the center of the town.
