"Gypsy Forest ", a park area located in the
south of Bielsko-Biala, is a literal translation of
the German name "Zigeunerwald". However,

was a spa and a residential district. While
walking through Gypsy Forest you can see a
wide variety of architectural styles and feel an
atmosphere of the bygone era.
