The Śnieżka Mountain is a pilgrimage destination. On the peak, there stands the St. Lawrence's Chapel where once a year, tour guides and mountain rescuers take part in a special mass. Śnieżka is also the mountain of sportsmen: 3 x Śnieżka = 1 x Mont Blanc in the mountain ultramarathon.
Amidst the myriad of hiking trails, you can admire the nature of the Giant Mountains, resembling the Scandinavian landscapes quite much. True pearls of the land are: Samotnia Mountain Hut, Łomniczka Cirque (Kocioł Łomniczki), Snow Cirques (Śnieżne Kotły). And in the forest, deer, red deer, boreal owls, Eurasian pygmy owls, bats and even the famous mouflons, imported from Corsica, can be seen.
