Karpacz is particularly rich in tourist attractions. Its attractive location draws the attention of legions of visitors, both in winter and summer. Snow frenzy enthusiasts are awaited at impressive ski resorts (among others: Kopa Ski Complex) and ski jumping hills (among others: Orlinek). Karpacz also offers a multiplicity of summer attractions. Tourists are invariably drawn to the impressive Wild Waterfall, which had been created by backed up rough waters of the Łomnica River. Visitors also can’t stay indifferent to the overwhelming beauty of the majestic peak of Śnieżka and rock formations such as Słonecznik and Pielgrzymy. There is also a little something for thrill seekers –a Ropes Course containing a steeplechase track composed of bridges, footbridges, beams, nets and an aerial rope-slide, i.e. the so-called tyrolean traverse. Another option is a summer toboggan track, where daredevils can accelerate up to 35 km/h! Karpacz won’t let you get bored, even if the weather is poor.
A Museum of Toys based on exhibits collected by Henryk Tomaszewski will take you to a nostalgic trip in time to your childhood. Equally fascinating is the collection exhibited at the Museum of Sports and Tourism. However, the greatest tourist attraction in this area is the Wang church, which is the only temple of this type situated outside Norway. Its architecture conjoins elements of Nordic folk art with Romanesque art. The church was built at the turn of 12th and 13th centuries.
In the summer time, visitors of Karpacz can also enjoy many cultural events such as the Kupala Night under the Waterfall, “Solo Artists in the Land of the Mountain Spirit” [“Soliści Europy w Krainie Ducha Gór”] Festival, European Voice and Music Festival, “With a Guitar and Quill” [“Gitarą i Piórem”], “Footsteps of Conquerers “ [“Ślad Zdobywców”], “The Musical Garden of Liczyrzepa” [“Muzyczny Ogród Liczyrzepy”] or Convention of Historic Fire Fighting Vehicles. During winter, it’s worth attending one of the concerts held at the Wang Temple or the Chess Tourniquet of Karkonosze. After a long day of sightseeing, you might wish to explore the restaurants of Karpacz: there are restaurants with waiting staff as well as bistros that offer fast, tasty and inexpensive meals. There is also something for the amateurs of Italian cuisine and local delicacies such as Karpacz cabbage soup (kapustnica karpaczańska) served with spareribs.
Karpacz’s nightlife will live up to the needs of people of all ages. While younger people are visiting one of the night clubs or pubs, mature tourists can enjoy dances and parties for adults. You can move around the town using the services of the PKS Company or one of many other public transport companies offering bus transport services. There is also a car rental company. In addition, families with little children will be glad to hear that there is a baby carrier rental, which will make spending holidays with a child completely unproblematic.
