Loop of the Mountains

We would like to offer you a tour of the most interesting places around the Silesian and the Zywiec Beskids .
The Silesian Beskids Mountains Loop is a tour during which we visit the famous three villages of Istebna district (a place full of history; its tradition – still alive - can be admired during interesting lectures at places such as: the Jan Kawulok Cottage Museum,  the Lace Museum, the Regional Museum 'Na Grapie'. Picturesque location of the beforementioned, their 'useful' exhibits give the participant not only a chance to learn about the history of the place but also to try to do some art work themselves.)
