The Romantic Małopolska.

If you’re still wondering where to take your dearest person for an unforgettable time together, come and see Małopolska!

A young man in bathing trunks is wading into a dark-blue pool down the stairs between metal rails. In the distance, behind him, a young woman can be seen relaxing on a sun lounger. The interior of the pool itself is very spacious and bright, with designer lamps hanging on long cables from the ceiling.

This is where you can find the Sensory Gardens of Muszyna: a tranquil and serene place designed to stimulate all five senses: smell, sight, touch, hearing, and taste. Of its Gardens’ seven zones, you will perhaps find most enchanting the one dedicated to Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love, who is symbolically present here as she pours water from her amphora to nourish the paradise apple trees planted by newlyweds.

Then, there come other spas, whose slow-life climate leaves an impression on everyone. Szczawnica, with its stunning old villas, exudes the charm of the great days of the past. Taste the healing waters at the drinking hall while soaking in the bohemian atmosphere of yore blending seamlessly and perfectly with the spa’s classical allure. Choose one of the numerous walking trails or embark on a captivating rafting excursion down the Dunajec River, immersing yourself in the world of Pieniny legends and tales. Piwniczna-Zdrój also appears tailor-made for couples. It is an ideal destination for a romantic weekend getaway. Poprad Landscape Park invites you to take long walks, while Park Zdrojowy and the Artistic Drinking Hall entice you to indulge in blissful idleness. The rustic and intimate charm of Piwniczna-Zdrój is truly captivating.

There are still wild and beautiful places to discover in the Beskid Niski mountains. The area around Regietów, a former Lemko village, offers wonderful hiking trails promising solitude, while the village is home to Gładyszów Hutsul Horse Stud – the largest not only in Europe but also in the world. Nowhere else do the sense of freedom, the power of nature, and cultural heritage intertwine as beautifully as here. Regietów, a place of peaceful serenity, is certainly a perfect escape from the noisy world.

Little wonder that, recognising Małopolska and Kraków to be the most romantic choice possible, Benedict Cumberbatch decided to propose here! Don’t wait any longer then, come and make the heart of Małopolska part of your own love story. Fall in love in Małopolska!

It is also worthwhile to embark together on the Małopolska Wine Route, as the ancient poet Ovid remarked, “wine warms the blood, gives light to the eyes, and, in combination with love, becomes an eternal ally”.
Then, there’s also a true gem. An enchanted town perched on a hillside where time stands still – Lanckorona. Stroll along cobbled streets and admire the wooden cottages that encircle the small market square. Together, savour the fantastic atmosphere over tea and scones or coffee and biscuits in Lanckorona’s charming cafés. For those in the know, a nearby alley by the castle ruins is known as “The Lovers Lane”.
