Zawoja lies at the foot of Babia Góra Mount (1,725 m) by the Skawica River. It is a well known tourist and recreation destination and constitutes a starting point for trekking in the area of Babia Góra Mount, the Polica and Jałowiec mountain ranges. The registered office of the Babia Góra National Park is located in the village. Zawoja is one of the longest villages in Poland; it is approx. 18 km long. The village of Zawoja and the village of Skawica are located in the Skawica valley, where waters from the Babia Góra area flow to the Skawa River; both villages were established as a result of settlers’ elbowing their way in the primeval Carpathian forest.
Zawoja: the largest village in Poland with respect to the surface area, located in the Małopolska Province in the Suski Poviat in Zawoja commune.
The first information about Skawica as an existing village dates back to 1593. For a long time, the villages of Zawoja and Skawica were treated as one and called Skawica. For the entire period of Old Poland, the villages belonged to the Lanckorona Starosty and were ruled by subsequent lessees of the royal lands.
Several ski stations are located in Zawoja. The most famous is the Mosorny Groń centre which offers a funicular with four-person gondolas and a ski route with a FIS license for organizing domestic and international ski competitions. The great attraction is Babia Góra Mount (Slovakian: Babia Hora, Hungarian: Babia gura, German: Teufelspitze i.e. Devil’s Mount) – a mountain massif in the range of Babia Góra of Beskid Żywiecki in the Beskidy Zachodnie Mountains, which reaches the height of 1,725 meters above sea level. This is the highest peak of the entire Beskidy Zachodnie Mountains and is included in the Crown of Polish Mountains.
The borders of Babia Góra Mount are delimited from the west by Przełęcz Jałowiecka (Jałowiecka Pass) (1,017 meters above sea level), on the east by Przełęcz Lipnicka (Lipnicka Pass) (commonly known as Krowiarki, 1,010 meters above sea level). Orava stretches in the south and on the north, the massif descends sharply to the Skawica valley.
Within the Babia Góra massif, it is possible to distinguish several culminations:
- Babia Góra (also known as Diablak: 1,725 meters above sea level),
- Mała Babia Góra (also known as Cyl: 1,517 meters above sea level),
- Sokolica (1,367 meters above sea level),
- Gówniak (1,619 meters above sea level) and
- Kępa (1,521 meters above sea level).
