address Zawoja

The summit of Babia Góra - Diablak (1725 m a.s.l.), the highest peak in Poland outside the Tatras. You can admire a beautiful view from the top of it.

The name of the peak is explained by one folk story. One of the brigands wated all the wealth for himself, so the devil appeared with a proposition. But he demanded the man's soul in return. The brigand signed the agreement with his own blood, but when he realised what he had done he wanted to back out. The devil agreed but it had to built a castle of stone before dusk. The devil nearly managed to do it and was so furious that he destroyed it and the brigand died inside it - that's how Babia Góra was created. Some say you can still hear the brigand calling for help.
