Little and Maków Beskids
We especially recommend International Folk Meetings Małopolska in Myślenice, which offer handicraft workshops for children and adults. They include dance classes, ethnic music concerts, cinema screenings, exhibitions and meetings with artists. The festival calendar of Wadowice includes some already well-known events: Reggae Most Festival, Wadowice Run, Powsinoga Run, Mountain Film Review and Zgraja Theatre Festival. The city also celebrates the birthday of Saint John Paul II. The Młyn Jazz Festival has been taking place in Jaroszowice near Wadowice for a decade. This open-air festival of jazz lovers is hosted by the owners of the Młyn Jacka Hotel.
Sport fans will certainly find amusing the running event Bieg Po Serce Zbója Spod Złotej Górki – a charity competition for runners and cyclists organised in Andrychów. In addition, it is worth participating in the August International Cycling Race “Memorial of Henryk Łasak”.
When going to Maków and Little Beskids, it is worth being up to date with the programmes of cyclical cultural events: inauguration of the summer holidays called Days of Sucha Beskidzka, Summer Festival in Myślenice, Summer Music Festival in Kalwaria Zebrzydowska, Angel in the Town Festival in Lanckorona or Week of Beskid Culture in Maków Podhalański.
Morever, don't forget about the rich offer dedicated to families with children. The youngest tourist will be delighted with a visit to the Mini Pony Zoo in Inwałd, flower lovers will love the unusual Garden of John Paul II, visitors interested in the world can see the “World of Dreams” Park of Miniatures, while fans of “Jurassic Park” can’t miss Dinolandia, and finally whoever is interested in the past, should visit the Medieval Inwałd Stronghold. It is also worth visiting the Apilandia – Interactive Beekeeping Centre in Klecza Dolna, as well as the astronomical observatory in Lubomir.
