Szklarska Poreba is a bustling tourist town along the boarder. Famous for its glassworks and health resort this small town has plenty to entertain: a waterfall, all the ice-cream you can eat, skiing in the winter, great hiking trails, and even a roller-coaster.

West of Jalenia Gora along the main road: Hwy 3 (E65) lies the town of Szklarska Poreba.
