Cieszyn is a beautiful town located directly on the Polish/Czech border.It is divided into two parts by the Olza River: Cieszyn (Polish) and Český Těšín (Czech).On both local bridges there were once terrifying frontier posts full of scary-looking gentlemen in uniforms. Nowadays, both Poland and Czech Republic are members of the Schengen Agreement and travelling around both parts of the town is not a problem whatsoever.


Cieszyn is a place full of different attractions

–        lovely old town with museums, bars, pubs, and cafeterias,

–        hilly area perfect for skiers, snowboarders and simply hikers

–        famous local brewery with the most popular lager – BRACKIE

–        czech side with very local czech and silesian bars (czech beer and food!)

Cieszyn became a popular transit place for all backpackers travelling from Krakow to Prague (or Prague to Krakow).
