Observation Tower in Czarnorzeki

  Czarnorzeki      (+48) 13 43 540 80     05 Sep 2023
As far as observation towers go, this is a bit of an odd one. For one thing, it’s modern - built in 2020 - but in a rustic highlander style, and more resembles a fortification than a typical observation point. Comprising three levels, the bottom two are made of brick, with the interiors used for exhibition space and various events. The building is topped with a covered terrace made of wood, with a wooden access stairway winding around the lower floors. Located just north of Krosno in Korczyna, the building stands atop Działy Hill at a height of 490 metres above sea level, and offers one of the widest panoramas of the Polish Carpathians. Entry is free and you don’t even have to go on a hike to get there, park right outside.

If you are up for a walk in the woods, Czarnorzeki is full of beautiful forest walks with some interesting rock formations and small waterfalls nearby. Krosno is only a 15min drive away, and boasts several cultural attractions - namely the Glass Heritage Centre and the Podkarpackie Museum - in addition to a charming market square.
