The pearl of Lower Silesia is undoubtedly the Karkonosze Mountains, which can be explored on numerous tourist routes. In the Karkonosze, it is worth seeing, among other things, the Kamieńczyk Waterfall - the largest waterfall in Poland with impressive cascades. Breathtaking mountain scenery is guaranteed by climbing the highest peaks of the Karkonosze - Śnieżka or Szrenica.

The labyrinth of Błędne Rocks and the astonishing rock formations on Szczeliniec in the Stołowe Mountains are other natural attractions of Lower Silesia ideal for a long May weekend. To these should also be added the caves - for example the Bear Cave in Kletno, which was discovered by accident in 1966 and still arouses the admiration of visitors due to the stalactites reflected in the underground lake.

A must-see place when spending May in Lower Silesia is Książ Castle. It is the third largest castle in Poland and one of the largest in Europe. The castle is surrounded by a historic park with a stud farm and there is a historic palm house nearby. The castle has not forgotten about the youngest visitors, for whom a ghost room has been created.

Recently, there had also been much talked about the lost Golden Train near Walbrzych. The undergrounds of the region hide many mysteries, which can be explored with the whole family or friends during a May trip.
