Although over 70% of the Karkonosze area belongs to our southern neighbors, on the Polish side there are several wonderful attractions that the Czechs can envy us. And it's not just about beautiful hiking trails.

Attractions of Karpacz

Wang temple

Karpacz offers many attractions, with particular emphasis on the rich offer for families with children. There is the City Toy Museum, water parks and an all-year-round ice rink. There is also a rope park, a toboggan run in summer, and ski runs and lifts in winter, so enthusiasts of active leisure will also be pleased to relax at the foot of the Giant Mountains . Apart from Śnieżka, the highest peak in the Karkonosze Mountains, you can climb Kopa or Smogornia and climb the surrounding rocks (including Raven Rocks, Pilgrims, Słonecznik). A moment of attention should also be given to the Wild Waterfall, located near the lower cableway station to Kopa. It is the dam that was built at the beginning of the 20th century to subdue the Łomnica river, a river that has repeatedly shown what it can do when its dammed waters gain speed.

Speaking of interesting places in Karpacz, it is impossible to ignore the medieval Wang Temple , transferred to the Karkonosze Mountains from Norway . It can be visited daily from 9am to 5pm (April 15th to October 31st to 6pm). A much newer attraction of Karpacz are the Karkonosze Mysteries, built in the place where the staff of the Mountain Spirit was excavated in 2011. Currently, the exhibit is located in the Karkonosze Museum in Jelenia Góra. The aim of building the Karkonosze Mysteries is to promote the history of the Karkonosze and their ruler - the Mountain Spirit, also known as Rzepiór and Liczyrzepa.
