 Before going to the mountains, however, it is worth stopping at least for a moment in Międzygórze. Behind the biggest tourist attraction in the area is a beautiful, 22-meter-high waterfall, which was created here at an altitude of 570 m above sea level. at the gorge of the Wilczka river, which is particularly impressive in winter, when, during the reign of low temperatures, everything is covered with a thick layer of ice. Due to the artificial raising of the threshold, the water dropped from a height of 27 m until the flood of 1997, which meant that the Wilczki Waterfall was as high as the Kamieńczyk Waterfall, the highest in the Polish part of the Sudetes. The water of Wilczka continues along a narrow and extremely picturesque gorge, which can be admired, for example, by using the bridge located above the waterfall itself, and hiking paths that were marked out as part of the Wilczki Waterfall Nature Reserve established sixty years ago.
