33-351 Łomnica-Zdrój Tourist region: Beskid Sądecki i Niski

The village lies directly by the mountain stream Łomniczanka. Situated in Beskid Sądecki, the village itself is surrounded by peaks: Kicarz, Groń, Drapa, Parchowatka, and the main ridge of Jaworzyna Krynicka.

The first mention of Łomnica comes from the royal documents of King Casimir the Great and it proves that the village was established earlier than the nearby town of Piwniczna-Zdrój. It was a royal village, founded by Casimir the Great, and a border village, as it separated Polish villages from the Lemko (Wallachian-Ruthenian) ones.

Łomnica is also a health resort, as there are several mineral water springs in its area. It served as a health resort for a short time, between 1910 and 1934. In 1924, a bath house was established in Dr Ziarka’s villa, followed four years later by small baths with mud and mineral baths. In 1934, the area was hit by a flood that destroyed the health resort infrastructure. It has never been rebuilt. There are 11 springs in Łomnica-Zdrój and they are mainly oxalates, or so-called ‘acid waters’. Developed water intakes include, e.g., the Stefan Spring (bicarbonate-calcium-magnesium water) and the Łomniczanka Spring. You can drink the water from them without fear, the orange sediment comes from the iron minerals contained in the water. 

The location of Łomnica is very attractive for tourists, as it borders Piwniczna and Wierchomla Wielka, among others. This makes it easy to reach neighbouring towns and villages and to enjoy the many attractions prepared for tourists. In addition, Łomnica borders Slovakia, which is an additional advantage for visitors. Łomnica is a village from which many hiking trails start. From here, it is possible to set off along interesting scenic trails to Kicarz, Łabowska Hala, Czarci Wierch or Parchowatka. They all offer beautiful views over the Tatra and Pieniny Mountains as well as Beskid Sądecki. When visiting Łomnica, you should not miss its two very important natural monuments, namely the waterfall on the Łomniczanka stream flowing through the village and the Łomniczanka sandstone rock.  Since 1998, the rock has been accorded protection as a natural monument.
