The Biała Przemsza river is considered a tributary of the Przemsza. It is the most important river of Zagłębie Dąbrowskie. Already in the interwar years, its scenic and tourism qualities were appreciated. The river flows through the areas of the Błędowska Desert, but the most interesting section is in the vicinity of Okradzionowa, popularly known as Switzerland of Zagłębie.
