Jelenia Góra - The historical town on the edge of the Giant Mountains

 
In the Sudetes, at the foot of the mountain chain of Giant Mountains, lies the attractive mountain town Jelenia Góra. The Lower Silesian town represents the tourist center of the Jelenia Góra valley with its almost 87,000 inhabitants. The Jelenia Góra valley belongs to the oldest and most interesting European cultural landscapes. From time immemorial, earls, princes and kings resided here. Here, the polish-silesian Piast dynasties and the knights descended from South Germany served the polish, bohemian, prussian and Habsburg monarchy. The castles, which are largely ruinous or partially renovated these days, can be visited in a special theme park as miniatures in the town of Kowary.
 
Who starts with a sightseeing walk in Jelenia Góra, visits the Jelenia Góra Circle (market square) as well as the widely known Church of Mercy. Furthermore it’s worth seeing the baroque town hall and also the arcade houses which testify the one-time prosperity of the town.
