However, those aren't the only towns you should know about. If you're a seeker of tourist attractions, also consider visiting other, slightly smaller but equally interesting places: Kowary, Przesieka, and Piechowice.

Museum of Sentiments in Kowary

Muzeum Sentymentów Kowary - atrakcje Karkonoszy

The Museum of Sentiments is an unusual place, just as its name suggests. Why? Because it collects not only objects from a bygone era but also immaterial exhibits, namely memories and sentiments. Step back 30-40 years and reminisce about objects familiar from your grandmother's kitchen, your parents' living room, or even your own room. Recall what the “Frania” washing machine looked like, how many things fit in the wall units that were mandatory in every home living room back then, how quickly the meat grinder attached to the tabletop minced meat, or how thick was the casing of the TV that only displayed in black and white.

And that's just a drop in the ocean of exhibits that flow into the Museum from the entire region, housed on over 400 square meters. A visit to the Museum is a surge of emotions, laughter, and reminiscing. For some, it's a teleportation to the everyday life of those years, for others an entire childhood, and for the youngest, it's “prehistoric times.”

Lego Blocks Museum in Karpacz

Here, you will experience the Karkonosze in a different way than usual: you'll conquer Śnieżka, Skalny Stół, and Pielgrzymy, peek into the Śnieżne Kotły, and relax by the Kamieńczyk Waterfall.

Natural History Museum in Jelenia Góra

muzeum przyrodnicze jelenia góra

Today's Museum is located in the building of the former Cistercian Monastery. It was established based on the natural collections of the Schaffgotsch family. The largest part of the exhibition is presented in the form of impressive, modern dioramas, depicting the fascinating world of nature. However, the museum's name is somewhat misleading, as in addition to natural curiosities, one can learn more about the history of the region. If you're up for a natural journey—to closely observe preserved animals, learn about the geology of the area, compare the sizes of eggs from various birds, or marvel at real horns and antlers—then visit the only Natural History Museum in the area!
