Jaskółka Dom i SPA
HISTORIC RESORT IN THE GIANT MOUNTAINS
From the verandas used for summertime basking, the patients of the Heidehaus were soothed by the same blissful view. A new classic has breathed life into the old interiors.
A doctor from nearby Görlitz called the luxury guesthouse from 1896 the Heather House. Later, the facility hosted Brothers of Mercy, and afterwards, Franciscan Sisters: it is their pointy cornets that gave the house the name “Jaskółka” (“Swallow”). Since the 1960s, it has been a resort for Soviet astronauts, and later, for Polish presidents. It took years of work by conservationists to restore Jaskółka to the state it was in a century ago. Design icons look at their reflections in old parquet floors, hang from ornate ceilings and hug the doorframes.
For adults only.

The former “high lungs” of Berlin, with residents arriving here by rail since 1902. Szklarska Poręba, previously known for its glassworks, has become a resort popular with the capital’s inhabitants thanks to its alpine air and spectacular landscapes. It was made famous by Gerhart Hauptmann, writer and soon-to-be Nobel Prize winner, who moved from Berlin to the artists’ colony he established around his home. Szklarska Poręba and the surrounding waterfalls, trails and peaks have featured in many paintings, tapestries and book pages.
