What makes it unique (apart from peat bogs rarely found in the mountains, reminiscent of Scandinavian flora) is the location of the meadow in a basin, closed on almost all sides by the Izera hills. However, it is not only it that makes the climatic conditions encountered in Hala Izerska resemble the subarctic climate – they are also affected by the masses of cool air flowing into the region all the way from the Atlantic Ocean – which in turn translates into the lowest average air temperatures in the whole country. There used to be a small village in Hala, Groß-Iser, which was renamed Skalno after the war – the reasons for its destruction remain a mystery to this day. because of its location near the border or as a result of military actions. The only remnant of the German settlement and its inhabitants is the Chatka Górzystów hostel – located in the building where the school operated years ago – rebuilt from damage and adapted to the needs of tourists wandering around the Jizera Mountains only in the mid-1980s.
