The picturesque area of Żywiec includes the Beskid Żywiecki and the Beskid Śląski as well as the rivers: the Soła and the Koszarawa. There are also two lakes: Żywiec Lake and Międzybrodzie Lake.
Żywiec, situated in the Żywiec Valley, is famous for its beer named after the town. The brand of the beverage was created by the Habsburgs, whose classicistic palace together with Renaissance castle can be admired in the beautiful municipal park.
Żywieckie Lake, the region's popular water sports centre. If you prefer less strenuous leisure, we recommend strolls along the old Beskidy architectural tourist trail, hikes on the mountain trails, or visits to the cinema, art galleries and the many restaurants where you can be served the region's specialties.
Żar Mountain attracts gliding, hang-gliding and paragliding enthusiasts. From here they start an airborne tour over picturesque, panoramic views of mountains and valleys. There is also a famous gliding school on Żar, whereas the mountain itself conceals an electric pumped-storage power station within.
Our Bierna's home is an excellent place to visit in late July and early August, when you can see events forming part of the Beskidy Culture Festival, including performances by folk groups from all over the world. After a concert, try dancing the night away at one of the great discos organised for festival goers.
