Hotel Perła Południa,
Rytro 380, 33-343 Rytro, Poland

Guest Information


The wedding and reception will take place at the Hotel Perła Południa, Rytro, situated at the base of a ski area in the foothills of the Beskidy Mountains.


How to get there

Rytro is a two hour drive from Krakow airport and we recommend hiring a car to drive there directly.

By public transport you can get a coach from Krakow Bus Station to Nowy Sacz, and then a taxi to the hotel. 


We have reserved a block of rooms at the Perla Poludnia, for guests coming from abroad, for the 1st and 2nd of August. The rooms are simple and have balconies with valley or mountain views. Please let us know if you wish to stay here as we have a discounted rate for those days.

There is also the Willa Poprad, with slightly fancier rooms, around a five minute drive away, and lots of options in and around Nowy Sacz, the nearest town, which is around a 25 minute drive away.

There will be a free taxi service to take everyone back home on the night of the wedding.


Things to do in the area

The Perla Poludnia hotel has a spa, gym, swimming pool, tennis and basketball courts. There is a free creche / kids club which is open from 12-9pm, and English speaking.

Rytro village is situated in wonderful countryside with lots of places to explore. There is a nearby 'rope park' called ABlandia for the adventurous.

Nowy Sacz is a quaint little town with lots of cafes, restaurants and a shopping centre.

Things to do in Poland

For those that are visiting Poland for the first time, we recommend to spend a few days in Krakow. The city centre is very modern and cosmopolitan and most people speak English. There are also day trips to popular tourist locations such as the Wieliczka salt mines and the Auschwitz museum.

As we will be travelling south for the wedding, we also recommend going to Zakopane if you have time. Zakopane is a popular resort town from where there are numerous trails up into the Tatras mountains, by cable car, horse and cart, or hiking/climbing, with many spectacular views to enjoy. It is also where we got engaged :)
