Old town of Przemyśl
Przemyśl owes its long and rich history to the advantages of its geographic location. The city lies in the Przemyśl Gate, an area connecting mountains and lowlands, with easy communication and fertile soil. It also lies on the navigable San river. Important trade routes passed through Przemyśl and ensured the city's importance.
Przemyśl is the second oldest town in southern Poland, after Kraków. It appears to have been founded as early as the 8th century.
There are several museums in the old town.
There is a ski slope with a toboggan run.
There is an icerink on Sanocka 2.
In a nearby village of Kuńkowce there is "Wioska Fantasy", a medieval gord-style village created by a local group of fantasy lovers.
Also just a few kilometers from the town there is a zoological garden Arboretum in Bolestraszyce.
