Attractions of the area
The Lusatian Land, where we are located, also has a long, interesting history, the relics of which have remained to this day and which contribute to the present-day cultural climate of the region.
Due to the proximity of water reservoirs: Leśniański and Złotnickie, it makes it possible to relax by the water and practice water sports. The proximity of the mountains along with the intensively developed infrastructure currently creates conditions for downhill and cross-country skiing and much more.
The westernmost point of the Sudetes. The Polish Jizera Mountains consist of two main mountain ranges: the High Ridge stretching along the Polish-Czech border and the Kamieniec Ridge.
Stóg Izerski (1107 m above sea level) and Smrek (1124 m above sea level)
One of the highest peaks of the Jizera Mountains, located on Świeradów, near the Polish-Czech border. Excellent viewpoints of the Jizera Mountains on the Polish and Czech side.
The hostel on Stóg Izerski (1060 m above sea level) was established in 1924 on the initiative of the Karkonosze Society, and more specifically on the initiative of Josef Siebelt (a doctor from Świeradów who came to the city at the age of 21 and, being seriously ill, healed miraculously, then decided to settle permanently. in then Bad Flinsberg).
Soon, a gondola lift will bring tourists and skiers to Stóg Izerski - currently under construction. The green trail leads from Pobiedna to Smrek and Stóg Izerski.
Very beautifully situated at an altitude of 840 - 880 meters in the valley of the Jizera River, a mountain meadow - a hall with a harsh climate (air temperatures of -3.5 ° C are recorded there in July). There is the lowest mountain pine stand there.
This area partially covers the Jizera Valley Peatbog nature reserve. In Hala Izerska, there is the Chatka Górzystów hostel - the only facility that survived the village of Gross Iser, which was destroyed in 1945. Comfortable, paved bicycle and pedestrian paths lead to it, incl. from Świeradów.

The peak separating Świeradów-Zdrój from Czerniawa-Zdrój. There used to be an observation tower on the top, and now there is an RTV transmitter. From there, you can admire the city and its surroundings.
Kamienicki ridge of the Jizera Mountains
It stretches from west to east for a length of about 18 km, from Sępia Góra (820 m above sea level) to Bobrów Skały (610 m above sea level) and the Winter Pass (525 m above sea level). For centuries, tin ores were mined on the slopes of the Kamienicki Grzbiet, and cobalt ores in the 19th century.
