ZEN Center

The Vipassana Meditation Center (ZEN House) is exact in the middle of Przesieka, a small village in Lower Silesia, southwestern Poland. It is one of the most important Centers of Vipassana Meditation in Poland.

Przesieka lies approximately 12 km (7 mi) south-west of Jelenia Góra, and 103 km (64 mi) west of the regional capital Wrocław. It is 15 minutes drive from the centre of Jelenia Góra. There is a regular city bus going to Przesieka from Jelenia Góra central train station.

Several hiking routes to Karkonosze Mountains begin in Przesieka. One of the most widely used is a route (2 h walk) to Karkonoska Mountain Pass Other popular routes lead to Chojnik Castle  (1 hour walk), and Karpacz (1.5 h walk). An interesting place to visit in Przesieka is the great Podgórna Waterfall (547 m above sea level).

In the future we have a plan to renovate the center and make it the first bike hotel in Lower Silesia, under the name ‘Przesieka Bike Hotel’.

The Ambience of Przesieka
Przesieka is a lovely hamlet. It’s character is constantly changing from that of traditional/agricultural to the one of a more “tourism orientated” place. Most people coming to Przesieka are from Lower Silesia. Wrocław inhabitants visit us most often. They seek to calm down in peace and tranquility. And they find it here, in Przesieka, and the neighboring villages of Borowice, Jagniatkow, and Zachelmie. Other resort towns of Karpacz and Szklarska Poreba cannot offer this kind of relaxing atmosphere.
