Szczyrk in the Beskid Śląski mountains
Last updated on


At the beginning of September 2021, my wife and I made an overnight stop in the town of Szczyrk in the Beskid Śląski mountains.

Szczyrk is most famous for its winter sports provision, boasting over 60km of ski runs. Interestingly, Poland’s Winter Olympics athletes train in Szczyrk for disciplines such as ski jumping and skiing. 

The two mountain ranges which surround the valley are dominated by the peaks of Skrzyczne at 1,257 metres (4,124 feet) and Klimczok 1,117 metres (3,665 feet). 

Unfortunately, I don’t have any pictures with commanding views from either of these peaks. This is because we arrived late in the day and could only really stay on lower ground in the town centre before darkness fell.

Still, we managed to film a little something for you:
