The Karkonosze are the highest part of the Sudeten Mountains between Silesia and Bohemia, and the highest mountain on the Polish side is Sniezka. They are nowhere near as impressive as the Alps, but for me they are beautiful in their simplicity. Perhaps I am so sentimental about them, because they are close to Wroclaw, my beautiful hometown and where I was raised. I used to go there very often during my school years.

 

Most of the tourist trails are  easy to walk. You can  walk or take a chair lift to Sniezka. Walking out of the town of Karpacz, which sits near to Sniezka, you will pass by the Dom Slaski hostel.

Going down from Sniezka, you can choose a trail to the Samotnia hostel and admire some pretty panaromas. From Samotnia, you can take a very easy walk through a picturesque valley straight to Karpacz, or turn a bit to see rocks called Pielgrzymy (Pilgrims).

When you are in Karpacz, you have to see the Wang temple which was moved from Norway in the XII century.

When you leave Karpacz, it’s also worth visiting Klodzko. This town is very rustic, but has its own charm. It also has an underground fortress which you may visit as well. Going farther, you can see a beautiful cathedral in Swidnica and the great Ksiaz Palace, where every year Harry Potter fans from all over Europe gather.
