Żabnica is a picturesque village, famous for its folklore and popular with holidaymakers. It is located in a beautiful valley sandwiched between the mountains of the Beskids. There are several pedestrian and bike trails running through the village, which lead to the corners of the Beskid ranges of Lipowska and Romanka. The church of Our Lady of Częstochowa in Żabnica is located in the central part of the village, on the main road. This is one of the monuments of the Wooden Architecture Trail of the Silesia province, which belongs to the Beskid loop.
Złatna, a highland village tucked amid the hills of the Żywiec Beskid, attracts tourists primarily with its landscape values. There are, however, some interesting monuments from the past, including, among others, ruins of a glassworks. Traces of a chamber furnace and the main building of the glassworks can be found in the hamlet of Złatna Huta. White and green glass was produced during most of the nineteenth century, when the owners of these lands were first the Wielopolskis and later the Habsburgs.
The forester’s lodge in Złatna was built in 1876 as one of a number of the facilities created by the Management of the Żywiec Estates of the Habsburgs. In the nearby Beskid mountains they managed a planned forest economy. The building was already designed in 1853 by Karol Pietschka, court architect of the archdukes. The forester’s lodge stands on a stone foundation. It is a wooden, log cabin construction. There is a porch with Swiss-type ornamentation running around the whole length of the porch.
The village of Milówka was for the first time mentioned in 1537. The origins of the village are related to both the Polish settlement (which from the lowlands up moved into these valleys, including the Sola river valley), as well as the settlement of the Wallachians, who reached the Beskid area from the east, along the arc of the Carpathians. The local, brick church was built in the 30s of the nineteenth century. It was erected on the site of a former wooden building dated from the seventeenth century.
