The Rytro commune = paradise for tourists
is one the youngest and smallest communities in Nowy Sącz Province. It is located on the main tourist route in the most picturesque part of the Poprad Valley River.
This valley is surrounded by the forested hills of the Radziejowa (1 262 m above sea level) and the Jaworzyna (1 114 m above sea level) from the east, forming a magnificent gorge with numerous bends.
Since the 19th century this place has been a popular summer destination because of its microclimate and unspoiled natural beauty.

In Rytro one can find the qualities of the peaceful countryside, easy acess to the mountain trails.
Rytro is proud of its wind and water power stations, founded by the local pastor, which provide clean energy.
There are many monuments of material culture i.e. the ruins of a medieval knight's castle, remembering the times of Ladislaus the Elbow. Overlooking the village, they stand on a steep hill (463 m above sea level) on the Poprad River, providing unforgettable panoramic views of Rytro, the Poprad River Valley and the highest peak of the Beskid Sądecki Mountains - the Radziejowa (1262 m above sea level).
