Weekend around Nowy Sącz

Weekend around Nowy Sącz

Nowy Sącz lies in the extensive mountainous valley, between the hills of Beskid Wyspowy, Sądecki and the Low Beskids. Around here you can enjoy a number of leisure activities, such as hiking and cycling up steep slopes, peaks and mountain passes. A visit to Nowy Sącz is also a perfect opportunity to explore the culture of the Ruthinian highlanders (the Lemkos) who live in the Low Beskids. Surrounded by mountains are the beautiful wooden Orthodox temples, which have subsequently been changed into Christian churches but have preserved the three characteristic tall, bulbous towers. Nowy Sącz is also the place to go for those who like spending time close to water. You can choose between the water reservoirs in Klimkówka, the Rożnowskie and Czchowskie Lakes, where you can swim and practice various water sports. In the winter you should visit the many skiing areas, including the cable-railway to Jaworzyna Krynicka, the new skiing area in Rytr, and the biggest one in Wierchomla Mała. Sightseeing Nowy Sącz is an occasion to visit “the waters”. The town is located very near the numerous mineral water springs, including the most beautiful spa in Krynica-Zdrój.
