Skrzyczne is located in the North-Eastern part of the Silesian Beskids, on the side range of the Barania Góra Mountain, starting from the main part of the Malinowska Skała range. Actually, this mountain section creates the massive of Skrzyczne and Little Skrzyczne, separating the main stream of Żylica from the Żywiec Valley. Due to its unique form, falling steeply to the Easter and North and due to the RTV transmitter, it’s easily recognizable from many spots, just like e.g. in the Beskid Żywiecki or the Tatra Mountains.

Koniaków is an exceptional village, located not in a valley but high on a mountain range, close to the characteristic Ochodzita peak, right between the European watershed, amongst the Black Sea and the Baltic Sea. The village name comes probably from the noble town of Koniaków at the Czech side of the Cieszyn city.

Settlers from that town came to Koniaków approx. at the beginning of the 18th century. Their settlement remains until today the highest located village in the Silesian Province ( about 700-740 m above the sea level). Koniaków is famous first of all for the excellent quality lace – including clothing and underwear.
