It serves as a platform owing to which the most important figures in European politics and economy can exchange their views.

Karpacz is a charming town at the foot of the Karkonosze Mountains with their highest peak – Śnieżka. Amazing landscapes, unique attractions and excellent tourist infrastructure attract many visitors each year.
Karpacz offers excellent and varied conditions for spending leisure time all year round. Spring, summer and autumn are primarily mountain trek times. Nearly 100 kilometres of hiking trails run through the area, making it possible to discover one of the country’s most valuable areas in terms of nature, which in most part is under the protection of the Karkonosze National Park. In winter, thanks to the appropriate terrain and favourable climate, the town transforms into a ski resort offering numerous slopes and ski lifts, especially for beginners and families with children.
