Hostel Przysłop under Barania Góra

Barania Góra with the height of 1220 m above sea level is the second highest peak in the Silesian Beskids. Two out of three source streams of the Vistula river, the Czarna Wisełka stream and the Biała Wisełka stream, flow out of its western slopes. The Nature Reserve “Barania Góra” covering 386 ha, encompasses the peak parts of the mountain along with the seepage spring area of the Vistula river. Since 1897 there was a wooden hunting lodge of the Habsburgs on the Przysłop clearing in the Barania Góra massif. In 1925 the lodge started to be used as a hostel of the Polish Tatra Society, and subsequently, the Polish Tourist Society.

In 1985 it was disassembled and transferred to the centre of Wisła. Today on Przysłop you can see a gamekeeper’s lodge and an outbuilding of the old hostel. The gamekeeper’s lodge houses the “Forest Chamber”, which presents the abundance of the local fauna and flora. The outbuilding houses the Barania Góra Cultural Centre of Mountain Tourism “At the

Source of the Vistula” – a museum of the Polish Tourist Society with an exposition devoted to the history of mountain tourism in the Silesian Beskids. After the disassembly of the hunting lodge, the hostel function was taken over by a three-floor brick building from the 1970s. It offers 90 beds and a large dining room. The hostel hosts numerous events – functions and meetings of tourism fans. The facility took a high fourth place in the Mountain Hostels Ranking of the “n.p.m.” magazine.
