Tourist attractions

We would like to invite families and organized tourist groups to the beautiful Region of Podlasie.
We will organize picnics, barbecues, bike trips along the Uniate routs, we will take you to the village of Mielnik by ferry across the Bug River. Also, we will show you some interesting places telling you some of their history. Everybody will experience peace and quiet here, see the beauty of the local nature and will remember the hosts’ hospitality forever.

Sometimes all we need is to get away from the TV, make a small walk and discover the beauty of the landscape and see some interesting monuments, which are becoming a rare phenomena nowadays. Unfortunately, we are the last generation to be able to see the old Polish noblemen’s country houses or some straw-roofed cottages.

“ … Such strange a nature does a human possess that instead of looking for far away, noisy and crowded markets will he be most pleased when looking into the depth of the silent streams and rivers or when contemplating over the old tombs whose story no one dares to remember any more … “. Zygmunt Gloger
