how to get there by public transport?
The best airport for landing in this case is Katowice-Pyrzowice (IATA shortcut: KTW). There are a bunch of direct buses to Katowice city and trains
to Bielsko-Biała from there.
how to get by car?
The best way to get to Szczyrk is the secondary road no. 942 from Bielsko-Biała. We strongly recomend to choose the eastern baypass to get there. From west, it's enough to drive all the time straight ahead by S-1 express way. From north (Katowice) driving the main road no.1 you must turn left on the north crossing to S-69 express way - destination Kraków, Żywiec, Zwardoń, Zilina. Drive this way over 11 km, all the time to Żywiec, Szczyrk and finally Szczyrk only. The bypass finishes exactly on 942 secondary. You turn left here. After the Bielsko-Biała the road is becoming narrow to a single lane. We are driving ahead thru the Bystra and couple smaller villages. In Buczkowice we turn right on a roundabout. After reaching Szczyrk centre we are looking for the advertisements of Orle Gniazdo. Be careful - it's quite easy to miss it, because it's among many other ads. There Wczasowa Street where we need to turn right is located about 1.9 km from the "Szczyrk" entry board. We go with switchbacks steeply uphill there, about 2 km. Hotel building will be large and well-visible. map of described route
