You are located at an altitude of about 700 meters above sea level. in the hamlet of Molusiówka, belonging to the village of Koszarawa Bystra and situated on the slopes of Jaworzyna, which is located in the Babia Góra massif. We have 14 farms in Molusiówka. Some of them belong to the descendants of the former owners, some have already had new owners. Everyone is very friendly and kind. We want our good neighborly relations not to suffer as a result of the guests' failure to comply with the rules of neighborly coexistence, such as the ban on organizing loud parties outside at night. But you can sit by a crackling fire, count the stars and play the guitar. In addition, we recommend a swing and a hammock that rock perfectly for afternoon naps. There is also a hot tub waiting for you, where you can soak all year round!
We hope you like walking and climbing, because you are in a place that is especially conducive to mountain tourism. Our favorite destination is the nearest peak Jaworzyna, which offers a beautiful view of Pilsko. Leaving the house, if you turn east, you will come along a path to a river with a footbridge and a mini-bathing beach, then along a path to an asphalt road, which leads to Klekociny Pass, Beskidek and Zawoja. If you go west, you will come to the hamlets of Kotrówka, Mrowcówka and Przyborów. In the south there is Jaworzyna and the hamlet Pod Jałowcem, and in the north Lachów Groń from which you can admire a beautiful view of Babia Góra. Going straight down to the north and passing the house of Mr. Wawrzek, you also come to the river. A place with a beautiful waterfall, above which there are rock shelves, which we call a natural jacuzzi - we recommend bathing there in hot months (in some places it is so deep that you can sit freely and cool down your hot body).
Our suggestions for slightly longer walking routes:
1. Zamolusie: this is the next hamlet that is easy to reach by heading east, that is, continue along the road you came on. After passing a few farms, the road ends, but do not be discouraged, you will definitely find a forest path that will lead you to Zamolus. Just don't go down too far, or go uphill, the path goes more or less all the time at the same height. It is also an alternative route to get to the church. Fun fact: Zamolusie is located in the neighboring commune - in Przyborów, which is a bit strange, because Przyborów is on the other side of the mountain.
2. Kotrówka: you have to go back a bit the way you came. After crossing the meadow called Dżystoniówka by the oldest highlanders (it's better not to know what it meant, for the curious: arguing or the effect of indigestion) we turn left to the forest path and keep going on the same level until we reach Kotrówka (on the left side ) and a bit further, following the stream, to Kalikówka, and even further to Mrowcówka. Lots of mushrooms in summer and autumn!
3. From Leonowa Chałupa in the "center" of Molusiówka, we walk sharply upwards, towards the south. On the left we pass a renovated house, and after a few bends we go out into the open space: it is Torgosowa Clearing. Going all the time south (uphill), looking for forest paths, you will take a shortcut to the top of Jaworzyna and maybe you will find a clearing where there is a beautiful hamlet called Pod Jałowiec, with one of the last huts covered with original wooden shingles.
Tourist route suggestions:
1. Molusiówka - Kotrówka - Cerliska - Jaworzyna - Pod Jałowiec - Molusiówka: 1.5 - 2 hours
2. Molusiówka - Jaworzyna through the hamlet of Pod Jałowiec - Polish-Slovak border (red trail) - Mędralowa - Klekociny Pass - Koszarawa Bystra - Zamolusie - Molusiówka: 3-4 hours.
3. Molusiówka - Koszarawa Bystra - Farm near Hala - Lachów Groń - Beskidek - Klekociny - Zamolusie - Molusiówka: 2.5 - 3 hours.
4. Molusiówka - Jaworzyna - Mędralowa - Babia Góra - Markowe Szczawiny - Mędralowa - Koszarawa Bystra - Molusiówka: 12-14 hours.
These are of course our suggestions - the routes are arranged in loops, they can be joined together by extending them. We recommend the Tourist Map application, where you can control your location, plan and save routes, search for tourist routes. It's worth taking your bike with you, we have very nice trails and bicycle routes. One of the most attractive cycling centers in the region is Zawoja and Babia Góra Trails (20 km of routes of various difficulty levels) and dual pumptrack (jumps and a training path for beginners). You can reach Zawoja by taking a shortcut through the Klekociny Pass, provided that you have a 4x4 car.
If you get bored with the neighborhood, it is worth going:
- to the Żywiec Brewery, the Brewery Museum, the Old Castle in Żywiec and the Żywiec Museum,
- to Golgotha Beskidów (Matyska hill) or Barania Góra,
- to Lake Żywieckie and Lake Międzybrodzkie,
- to the Zimnik Valley,
- over the Mosorczyk Waterfall,
- to the viewpoint on Skrzyczne,
- to the Żywiec Ethnographic Park,
- to see the spring and summer sheep grazing at Hala Baranek. And when we are with sheep, it is worth visiting us in May, because it is then (on the occasion of the redyk) that you can see the ritual of mixing sheep (forming from animals owned by many owners of one herd). This folklore event is always organized on Saturday and its aim is to promote sheep farming in the Żywiec region.
If you like adrenaline, we recommend you try your hand at paragliding - you can fly with a tandem pilot on Góra Żar. In winter, it is worth taking your skis and going to Korbielów, Szczyrk, Węgierska Górka or Mosorny Groń.
