If you asked someone which of the forest complexes in Poland is the largest, probably the most common answers would be either Bialowieza Wilderness, Augustow Wilderness or Notec Wilderness. All these answers are wrong! Because these are Lower Silesian Forests that are truly the largest ones. They are located in two voivodships: Lower Silesian and Lubuskie, and, though amazing, they are still very little known as a tourist region.

In Lower Silesian Forests, pine is the dominant species but there are also many varieties of oak, beech and other deciduous trees. The flat landscape is diversified by hills, the highest of which is Czartowska Mountain, in Wegliniec commune, 247 m above sea level. There are meandering river valleys, including the Nysa Luzycka, Kwisa or Bobr rivers, cut off old river beds and numerous mid-forest ponds as well as small deserts (Kozlowska and Strachowska), inland dunes and peat bogs.

Lower Silesian Forests are known for their great abundance of mushrooms and berries, as well as numerous regional products, of which heather honey is the most famous one. Thanks to the large area of unpopulated backwoods, you can find many species of birds of prey (white-tailed eagle, hawk, black kite) and large mammals (deer, roe deer, wild boar). Wolves also venture there more and more often.

The forests are a zone of centuries-old intertwining of the Wendish (or Lusatian) and Silesian cultures, which is visible in architecture and construction. You will find here both prehistoric strongholds and buildings in almost all styles: magnificent castles, simple rural farms, facilities depicting historical industrial activity and historic technical constructions. The most important of them can be admired in Boleslawiec, Kliczkow and Zgorzelec.

The Kruszyna Inn

Let us invite you to the Inn - an unusual place by an ordinary road. A true inn - with good cuisine and interesting company.

Boleslawiec Ceramics

In Boleslawiec the tradition of ceramic products goes back several centuries and their popularity has long crossed the borders of the town, region or even the continent. No wonder, because despite the passing of time there are still many factories producing richly decorated Boleslawiec stoneware and the products they offer invariably impress buyers with high quality and appearance.

 

Other regions of Lower Silesia:

Kaczawa Foothills

The Kaczawa Mountains and Foothills, known as the Land of Extinct Volcanoes, is the northernmost fragment of the Western Sudetes. It primarily delights with nature and landscapes. Ostrzyca is the highest hill here - its characteristic silhouette, visible from many kilometers, is reminiscent of Japanese Fujiyama.

The Barycz River Valley

The Barycz River Valley is mainly visited by nature enthusiasts. Milicz Ponds, known to all ornithologists, are a refuge for many species of birds and their flights attract hundreds of observers to this area. Equally impressive are walks along picturesque levees, especially at sunset or sunrise.

The Nysa, Kwisa and Bobr Rivers

Located on the border with Germany, the region has enjoyed the recognition of canoeing enthusiasts for years. They have both typical mountain and calmer river sections at their disposal. However, it is enough to pull the kayak ashore to see that there are also other attractions in the region.

The Odra River Valley

The Odra River Valley - the largest of the sub-areas of Lower Silesia - is also the heart of the entire region. Only Wroclaw, in which Odra flows with several branches, provides attractions for many days of sightseeing. And this is just the beginning!

The Owl Mountains

The picturesque Owl Mountains, the Central Sudetes range, delight with amazing landscapes that can be admired from many viewpoints. They are a wonderful place for hiking and biking tours and, in winter, breathtaking views can be admired while cross-country skiing on the many trails prepared for especially it.

The Sleza Massif

The Sleza Mountain, rising above the surrounding area at 718 meters above sea level, is located about 30 km southwest of Wroclaw. It is close enough not to have to go too far from the capital of Lower Silesia and to be able to experience the pleasures that a hike gives. And this is why crowds of, not only of Polish, hikers come every day to the summit of this Silesian Olympus.

Trzebnica Hills

Trzebnica Hills, also known as the Cat Mountains, are distinguished by their picturesqueness and a dense network of walking and cycling routes encourages active relaxation in the fresh air.

Walbrzych Land

An industrial town called Walbrzych was, until recently, mainly associated with mines, smelters and other large factories. It became famous thanks to the secret of the Golden Train. Does the train allegedly hidden in the underground of Walbrzych really exist? So far it is not known. What is known, however, is that Walbrzych Land is one of the most interesting natural and cultural corners of Poland.

Klodzko Land

Klodzko Land, whose central part is Klodzko Valley surrounded by the ranges of the Bystrzyca, Table and Bardo Mountains as well as the Massifs of Snieznik, is one of the most beautiful regions of Poland. It attracts visitors with its wild nature and fantastic tourist conditions with downhill runs, spa towns and a rich accommodation base.

Giant Mountains and Jizera Mountains

The Karkonosze or Giant Mountains, the highest range of the Sudetes with Sniezka rising 1603 m above the sea level, have amazed people for hundreds of years and it is hard to believe that these mountains are so little known in Poland today. The Jizera Mountains with the Foothills are, in turn, the westernmost part of the Polish Sudetes. The picturesque, captivating Jizera landscape is dominated by wide valleys and hills with elongated, gentle slopes.

Lower Silesian Wilderness

Wild, rich in fauna and flora, and above all beautiful and picturesque, especially at sunrise, when its rays pierce the rising fog, creating an amazing light spectacle
