The Concert Shell in Krynica-Zdrój is a historic, representative stage building for the spa orchestra, situated on the promenade in Krynica, on the western slope of Góra Parkowa, between the New Spa House and the Main Pump Room. At the end of the 19th century, a pavilion for the Spa Orchestra, which performed in the summer season from 1875, was built. The present concert shell was built in the interwar period on the site of the previous wooden pavilion. It was built in the neoclassical style and is an object of great architectural interest. There are two rows of stairs leading to the building, which meet at the back of the building. On the facade of the shell there is a plaque commemorating the internationally renowned Polish singer  Jan Kiepura, as well as a relief of his face. This tenor built the „Patria” villa in Krynica-Zdrój and has performed many times on the promenade in Krynica.

Przehyba

Przyhyba
Nature

Przehyba (Prehyba, Przechyba) is one of the main peaks in the Radziejowa Range in Beskid Sądecki. In addition to the asphalt route from Gabon, there are several hiking trails to the top, incl. from Szczawnica and Stary Sącz, as well as from Krościenko, Rytro, Jazowska and Piwniczna-Zdrój. The name of the hill comes from the Czech language, meaning the pass, but it was dropped by the Ruthenians living in the nearby village. Initially, this term was used in relation to the surrounding hall, and with time the summit itself was called so. Probably falls under the Poprad Landscape Park, which was created in 1987 and where the protection covers mainly mineral water springs (szczawy), Carpathian beech forest and other interesting species of flora and fauna. In the western part of the hill, there is the PTTK Shelter on Przehib (1150 m) and the Radio and Television Broadcasting Center with an 87 m steel tower. Probably it is a very scenic place – there are wide panoramas to the south, from where you can see the Pieniny and Tatra Mountains, but also to the north, with the characteristic Sądecka Basin.

St. Kinga, also known as the chair of St. Kinga, a monument of inanimate nature, and more precisely a group of rock outcrops made of Magura sandstone, located near the Skałka summit (1163 m) in the Radziejowa Range, near the Przehyba peak (1175 m). This rather peculiar rock is surrounded by a dense spruce forest on the northern slope of the mountain. The shape of the sand stone resembles a chair, next to which there are rock outcrops of various sizes. St. Kinga is located exactly in a straight line between Stary Sącz and the castle in Pieniny. The spring that flows from under the stone was associated as a pulsating heart in which Kinga was washing her eyes and feet. To this day, the local population believes in the healing effects of water (especially in eye diseases).
