Wisła is a winter sport resort city in the Silesian Beskids in the Silesian Voivodeship, in Poland. It is situated south-west of Kraków, in the vicinity of Bielsko-Biała.


The Festival of Snow, sponsored by local brewery Zywiec, is held each year in February, only in 2007 due to the mild winter the snow sculptures were made from snow taken from the nearby hills! There is also a market featuring traditional local produce and music concerts.


I remember that it is quite common for people to rent out rooms in their houses to visitors. In fact, a friend I stayed with had a sign on their house saying "no rooms for rent" as people were obviously ringing on their door!
