Out of town

Książ

- the biggest castle in the area. Once called the clavis ad Silesian, the key to Silesia, since it was the main fortress on the route to Silesia. The castle towers over the whole area. On three sides, it is surrounded by the river, and by an old park of rhododendron and flowered terraces. On one of them – the Water terrace, there are 27 fountains.

Kłodzko Land

- the major city of Kłodzko Valley, situated on a trade route from the south to Silesia. An 18th-century fortress towers over the city, and under the old town one can visit half a mile of corridors. One should also visit the gothic 14th-century bridge, which is a copy of the Charles Bridge in Prague. The climate and landscapes of Kłodzko Land make it popular as a land of health and peace. Most of Lower Silesian spas are situated there: Kudowa Zdrój where there is a beautiful park, and Duszniki Zdrój (Zdrój meaning a spa) which has a picturesque town square and parish church with a pulpit carved in the shape of a whale. Frederick Chopin was treated here in 1826 and therefore in August every year Festivals of Chopin’s music take place in Duszniki.

Karkonosze

- the highest and most beautiful mountains in the area. Karpacz and Szklarska Poręba are the two most popular tourist towns in these mountains, and the best starting points to the mountains. The waterfall of Kamieńczyk in Szklarska Poręba is one the major attractions of the Karkonosze. It falls into a 100-foot deep canyon, cascading down on three terraces at a height of 90 feet. In the middle terrace, there is the so-called Golden Den, covered by the waterfall, and made by gold seekers in the Middle Ages. Close to Karpacz, there is a wooden church, “Wang”, built in Norway in the 13th century and moved to Karpacz in the 19th.
