Jelenia Góra – The Pearl of the Karkonosze Mountains
The beautiful town of Jelenia Góra has a 900 years' history. All roads in the Old Town lead to the market square, which is surrounded by burgher houses with arcades. There the visitors are greeted by a bugle-call, played from the town-hall's tower. From here it is only a stone throw to the remnants of city walls, Gothic and baroque churches, streets with art nouveau style houses, to castles and palaces. The museums contain true treasures – the largest collection of artistic glassware in Poland, an interesting exhibition of birds and butterflies and much more.
Hot springs in Cieplice-spa – a district of Jelenia Gora, have been, for centuries, providing comfort to people suffering from motor organs, urinary tract, and eye illnesses.
Mountains and woods are visible from almost every point in the city, and one can reach them in just a couple minutes on foot. Journeys through the Karkonosze National Park and other landscape parks near the city limits are a great opportunity for close contact with nature. Active students will find this spot a perfect place for bike trips, horse rallies, rock climbing and scenic flights. In winter, fans of skiing can visit the nearby Łysa Gora, with excellently prepared ski runs.
Jelenia Gora is also a host to many concerts, festivities, exhibitions, theatrical meetings and music festivals, which are held throughout the whole year. The Silesia Sonans Organ Festival, Vienna Music Festival, Krokus Jazz Festival, International Street Theatre Festival - these are only but a few picks from a rich calendar of events, each of them truly worth attending. Numerous restaurants offer traditional Polish cuisine, while cafés and pubs provide a place where students can relax and meet new friends.
