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.
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.
Skis have been used for thousands of years. For centuries, they served hunters and were also used during the battles conducted on snow-covered terrain. The second half of the nineteenth century saw the development of ski tourism treated as a discipline and then a sport. The Museum of Skiing in Wisła has a collection of skis, among which we can also find old ones from the nineteenth century. Its exhibits also include the equipment used by Adam Małysz and other Polish skiers.
The wooden hunting palace of the Habsburgs is the pride of Wisła. This does not mean that their Imperial and Archducal Majesties were hunting in the center of the town at the foot of Barania Góra. The mansion had once stood in the forests of the Silesian Beskid, and it was moved to Wisła only in 1986. Originally, it had been built on the initiative of Archduke Frederick Habsburg on the glade of Przysłóp in 1898. He often hosted crowned heads, who loved to hunt beautiful birds - grouses.
