ABOUT POLSKA MAGIA

Welcome to Polska Magia. We invite you to discover together with us the perhaps most beautiful part of Poland, Lower Silesia. We start our journey at the heart of this beautiful country, the "Land of Extinct Volcanoes". This nickname carries the Kaczawskie Mountains because of its landscape marked by volcanic cones. 

When we first visited this area in 2010, we immediately fell in love and decided to build something up here. And so we have found a lovely place in the small village Pomocne. Pomocne (ge. Pombsen) is a picturesque and mainly original village in the Natural Park Chelmy. Here you can still find farmers who grow and process local products, cows and goats, brought to lush meadows, the original rural life and old houses, waiting to wake up after a long sleep.

And that is what we have made to our mission: for eight years, we reconstructed piece by piece a historic farmhouse to a small guesthouse, which invites to natural recreation and excursions into the beautiful Lower Silesia region. Leave everyday life behind for a while and enjoy a few very special voyages of discovery after spending relaxing nights in our shepherd's wagons.

 

A LITTLE BIT OF HISTORY

Our house 2011

This is the original condition in which the house was built around 1937. The living area consisted of five rooms, the agriculturally used area of the feed kitchen, a horse a pig and a chicken coop and a barn. The foundations date back to a much older half-timbered house, which was fallen victim to a fire. Today you can still find on the ground floor up to 80 cm thick walls
