The area and attractions

Przesieka is located in the Podgórzyn commune, 6 km from the Polish-Czech border, near Szklarska Poręba, Karpacz, Jelenia Góra and in very close proximity to the Cieplice health resort.

The fabulous landscape in Przesieka, at any time of the year, turns ordinary walks into unforgettable trips, and access to various entertainment makes your stay in Przesieka unique. Here you will see beautiful post-German historic architecture, attractive hiking and cycling paths, and you can also climb the two highest peaks of the Karkonosze Mountains, i.e. Szrenica and Śnieżka.
