The seminars take place in the breath-taking Silesian (1,257 m) and Zywiec (1,725 m) Biskidy Mountains. These mountains form the most western part of the Polish Carpathian Mountain range. This area is a refuge for large carnivores as well as many other species of flora and fauna. This diverse landscape comprises dense woodland, mountain streams and sandstone caves. Set in amongst this landscape are many reminders of history and local tradition, including historic wooden architecture such as shepherd’s shelters and numerous churches and chapels.
