    Rabka church and museum

    by GeoV Written Mar 18, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The area of Małopolska, between Kraków and the Tatra Mountains, has retained much historic wooden architecture. (A number of the churches form a UNESCO World Heritage Site.) Rabka church, from the early 17th century, has become the Władysław Orkan Museum with exhibits ranging from local musical instruments to traditional Christmas decorations, cheese molds and a host of other items. In addition, the ornate Baroque interior of the church has been retained as part of the museum.
    The following web-site
    covers the wooden buildings of the area. If you don't understand Polish, try clicking on the brown button showing the 'Orawa, Podhale, Spisz i Pieniny' region which includes Rabka. Clicking the places on the map will show plenty of illustrations of the local wooden architecture; Dębno might be a good starting place.

    Bistro Grill: Mountain spécialties

    by mignonne Updated Nov 1, 2002

    This is a simple restaurant that serves Polish food.

    Favorite Dish: *Szasz³yk Zbójnicki- A "brochette" of BBQ meat (beef) with onions and red pepper. Served with potatoes( grilled, fries or steamed)=)

    *Try also the typical polish beetroot soup -Barszcz :) - With Ravioli inside or served with pancakes. Delicious!!

    *Go for a specialty of southern Poland- The - Zurek - sour soup with sausages and eggs inside:))) My favourite:))

Rabka Warnings and Dangers

  • Snow

    I knew we had do keep driving cuz if we stoped we wouldn't be able to start again without chains on the wheels. We saw few cars on the way that did stop and we started driving even faster afterwards... not to stop, not so stop.

  • Lots of snow

    In Poland we have really cold and snowy winters sometimes. These days were really bad. We were trying to avoid traffic and this is the view we had from the car driving on the side roads.

Rabka Sports & Outdoors

  • Skiing

    Being on the slope in such warm sunny day is a great way for spending the time... especially if it's 40 minutes driving from your home.

  • Skiing

    This activity is rather sitting in the bar then going down the slope on your skis but I actually think that "skiing" includes both.

  • Skiing

    There are some less popular skiing areas then for example in Zakopane. Many of them allow you to ski at night too.

  • don't miss train museum

    you'll find it,easily,along main road from krakow to zakopane..on both sides of the road as steam was used until the 90's...the collection is nearly complete and well preserved..(in other countries,they had to refurbisch what they can find!)

  • Train Museum

    You have to visit the train museum. It is an open-air museum that displays real old trains. Really amazing!

  • A nice walk in the forest...

    The relaxing surroundings of this town, there are hills around and you can feel the nature surrounding you. I recommend a nice walk in the hills; you can get a great view of the town!
