Międzygórze is a village located in Lower Silesia, in the Eastern Sudety Mountains. It was founded in the 16th century. Initially, it was mainly woodcutters and coal miners who lived here. Over time, forestry and weaving also developed here. In 1840 the village was bought by Princess Marianna Oriańska. It was then that Międzygórze started to turn into a summer resort. The first sanatoriums, treatment facilities and guesthouses were established.
A characteristic feature of the village, located near Bystrzyca Kłodzka, are extremely interesting tyrolean-style villas, which are also called swiss villas. This is where the nickname of the village, “Little Switzerland”, came from. The villas were built in the second half of the 19th century.
However, there are more interesting attractions in Międzygórze. Tourists can see the building of the “Gigant” sanatorium from 1882 and the wooden “Alpejski Dwór” guesthouse. What’s more, children are sure to be delighted by the Fairy Tale Garden. This is an open-air museum with wooden sculptures depicting fairy tale characters. While in the area, do not forget to visit the largest and highest waterfall in the Śnieżnik Massif, i.e. the Wilczki Waterfall.
Beautiful wooden houses and picturesque landscapes make Międzygórze a place that is easy to become enchanted with.
