The Żywiec Archducal Brewery is one of the most famous and
successful producers of beer in Poland. The history of the plant
began in the mid-nineteenth century, when the decision was
taken by Archduke Albrecht Friedrich Habsburg, the then owner
of Żywiec to build a brewery. Many of the original brewery
buildings have been preserved to this day. They were designed
by Karol Pietschka. The Żywiec Brewery Museum astounds with
modern solutions, where we will learn the history of the plant
and the process of beer production.
Rychwałd is a village situated near Żywiec. It lies in a
picturesque mountainous area of the Pewelski Range,
which is the westernmost part of the Makowski Beskid.
In the village itself and its surroundings, there are are a
few sights worth seeing, which primarily include the
local shrine and the manor house, built in the first half of

earlier function. In the palace park, on the small river
Żylica, we will see remains of the earthen ramparts and a
moat. Currently, the building houses several Institutions
