Get to know what you have

What is local and close is often underestimated. Chasing the exotic, we miss the precious sites situated in the neighbourhood. However, nowadays we’re beginning to become more aware of the carbon footprint of long journeys and try to live more slowly, in an ecological way. We’re also forced to change, slow down and travel in a new way by the current situation in the world, resulting from the pandemic. We’re going off the trail, discovering famous places again, looking for attractions in the nearby area, carefully and without rush.

Dorota proposes a visit to Chatka Włóczykija and Schronisko Dobrych Myśli in Jamna, where, as she writes: You will enjoy unique views of the sunset, Tatras and the panorama of the the Ciężkowice-Rożnów Landscape Park seen through the windows of a wooden hut. In Schronisko Dobrych Myśli (Good Thoughts Shelter) you will be welcomed with a delicious lunch, a piece of apple pie and a cup of aromatic coffee. Jakub, in turn, recommends a visit to Bobrowisko in Stary Sącz: The bobrowisko (beaver lodge) in Stary Sącz is a network of wooden footboards of several hundred meters in length, on which we can walk. In addition, we have two observation points from which we can admire the ponds and wetlands, looking out for beavers and other animals living in this ecosystem. Alexandra’s favourite place is Polana Podskały in the Gorce National Park: One of the most beautiful glades in Gorce – quite extensive and characterised by major landscape qualities. It is located between Jaworzynka and Gorc Troszacki. There are three wooden huts, which remain after the pastoral activity of the Zagórzanie highlanders, an ethnic group which lives in the Island Beskids and the northern part of Gorce.
