The Military Boarding House „Kościelisko”
XI Chess Olympiad for the Blind will take place in the Military Boarding House "Kościelisko". It is located in Kościelisko at an altitude of 930 m above sea level, in a natural park with species of trees characteristic of Tatra region. The centre of Zakopane is just 5 km from the house. Accommodation for over 500 guests can be arranged in the house. It has rooms of different standards. Tourists who come here can choose a comfortable apartment for 2 or 4 persons, a room for 2, 3 or 4 persons with kitchen, bathroom and tv, or normal rooms for tourists. The price for renting a room includes all meals and an opportunity of spending time actively. Numerous excursions (by coach and on foot) to different parts of Tatra and Pieniny are organized. You cannot find such attractive prices for all-year accommodation in any resting house in Zakopane and Podhale!
Near the house there is a park with alleys, a fountain, and on the campus, before the main building, there is a tennis court, sports ground, playground for children, library, coffee house, drink bar, shop, solarium, fitness room, hairdresser, and parking space (supervised and not supervised).
Thanks to its large size, MBH "Kościelisko" is also the best in Podhale in terms of conditions and equipment appropriate for organizing scientific conferences, training courses, symposia, discussions, sessions, congresses, and cultural events. All these things are very important for the boarding house. In Zakopane and its regions there are not any big objects of such a kind which would be able to accommodate a group consisting of several hundred people at one time.
MBH "Kościelisko" belongs to the Military Recreational Centre "Zakopane" in which between the World War I and II lived such people as Maria Skłodowska-Curie, Henryk Sienkiewicz, and Ignacy Paderewski. During last years presidents of the Polish Republic lived here too.
In Military Recreational Centre "Zakopane" many important national and international conferences have been organized in which famous politicians, scientists, and cultural activists participated. The buildings of the MRC (MBH "Kościelisko", MBH "Salamandra", MBH "Przyjaźń") also enabled accommodation and service of the most important sport events: European biathlon championships, Winter olympic games for Special Schools, world chess championships, and winter universiade planned for 2001.
