The West Poland/Sudeten Mountains region
South-west Poland has one of the most diversified landscapes in the country and is therefore particularly valued by tourists. Foreign visitors are especially attracted by the Karkonosze Mountains. Upper Silesia was and still is an important economic centre of the country.
The region comprises the following three voivodships: Dolnoslaskie Voivodship with its capital in Wroclaw, Opolskie Voivodship with its authorities seated in Opole, and Slaskie Voivodship with administrative centre in Katowice.
Beautifully located in a valley, Jelenia Gora is an ideal base for trips to the Karkonosze Mountains, one of the most valued recreational and leisure areas in Poland. The town has a number of architectural buildings and other elements from various periods, some of which can be found in the intricately renovated Old Town.
What is more, Jelenia Gora boasts a rich cultural life, with the most famous event being the International Festival of Street Theatre in the summer. An added attraction is Cieplice Zdroj, the oldest Polish spa, which is located within the town’s boundaries.
