Sokół Hotel in Łańcut – our first accommodation during the Galicia Tour

We always put a lot of effort into finding the best possible accommodation for our clients. We want them to have a comfortable stay and to be able to rest after an intensive day of the researching or visiting. But we also want to choose the places that will have the most unique atmosphere, those which highlight the history and culture of the region, and to provide an individual approach to each guest. That is why we usually avoid big, international hotel chains.

Hotel Sokół is our most recent find and partner. They opened in 2016, but the building itself has a much longer history. Since 1896 it had belonged to the Polish Gymnastic Society “Falcon” (Sokół), which is a great starting point to tell the history of Galicia. Sokół (Falcon) was formed February 7, 1867, in Lwów, then a capital of Austro-Hungarian Galicia. The basic aims of the society were the promotion of gymnastics and national revival in all parts of partitioned Poland. Similar buildings can be still found today in almost each Galician Town, such as Jarosław, Nowy Sącz, Krosno, Pilzno and many more…

After World War II,  a cinema called “Znicz” was located in this building. Unfortunately, over the years, the building fell into disrepair and needed extensive renovation. The new owners took on this task in order to give the building  a new destiny.

 

Apart from its great history, the hotel has perfect location – just several minutes walk from the Łańcut Palace and Park, and it fits well into our entire itinerary in the Podkarpacie region.

Best of all, the hotel offers all facilities needed for our guests, such as wi-fi and air condition in all rooms, a restaurant, a bar, a pleasant terrace, a spa and wellness  (free for hotel guests) and even tennis courts.
