The Castle
Karczma Rzym
  • The Castle Sucha Beskidzka (sometimes called little Wawel) was built in Renaissance style by an Italian merchant, who took the name Suski. There is a museum in the castle that can be visited. Also check the castle gardens.
  • A church with a cloister (17th century)
  • There is also a famous old wooden inn (karczma) called "Rome" (Rzym) on the main square. The legend tells, that Jan Twardowski, a humanist of the 15th century, sold his soul to the devil, but Satan could only take it in Rome. So Twardowski decided never to go to Rome, but went for a drink to the inn. All in all, he never went to hell but to the moon, where he watches Kraków with his friend the spider until now. If you have not signed any dubious deals, you can have a good and inexpensive meal inside this traditional place.
