​The Istebna Municipality

The Istebna Municipality is located in the southern part of the Silesian Voivodeship. It is often called the Triple Beskid village, because it consists of three beautiful villages located on the slopes of the Silesian Beskid: Istebna, Jaworzynka and Koniaków. It is a borderland area, close to our neighbors Czechs and Slovaks, with whom we are connected by the historical past, current cooperation and elements of colorful culture.


Our commune is known for cultivating traditional handicraft - lace, sculpture, embroidery, woodcarving, you can visit many galleries, workshops and exhibitions. Numerous cultural events organized in the commune are an opportunity for contact with live folklore, beautiful music, dance and regional costumes. The "Pod Skocznią" amphitheatre is known, among others, as one of the stages of the Beskid Culture Week!  An important element of the local culture has always been the shepherding, which is currently experiencing its renaissance, and wooden construction, whose examples can be admired in our area.


The Beskid Tri-Countryside is also a place of beautiful nature and landscapes, which can be discovered thanks to a dense network of tourist trails and a modern recreational and sports base, allowing for active recreation. In summer we invite you to the rope park, Nordic Walking paths, various types of sports fields, tennis court, hiking and biking trails and swimming pools, while in winter we offer modern ski lifts, cross-country trails and sports halls. The Istebna Commune is known for its international sports events - bicycle races, cross-country skiing, cross-country skiing, hiking, cycling and car rallies.
