Sącz Ethnographic Park

About 3.5km southeast of the centre, Sącz Ethnographic Park is one of the largest and best skansens in the country.


For centuries Jews lived in the area north of the Rynek. This is also the area where the Germans built their wartime Jewish ghetto, before shipping 25,000 residents to extermination camps in 1942.

Gothic House

The 15th-century Gothic building houses the district museum.

Restauracja Ratuszowa

This restaurant below the Town Hall specialises in pierogi and has an impressive range indeed, including some stuffed with nettles, buckwheat groats and black pudding for the especially daring.

Strauss Café

Beautiful throwback cafe on the Rynek harks back to the 19th century and the Austrian occupation, complete with sepia-tone photos of Emperor Franz Joseph on the walls and lavish neoclassical interior elements
