Wisła is a picturesque town lying in the Silesian Beskids. It is here, at the foot of Mount Barania where beating the source of the longest Polish river, from which the city, also known as the "Pearl of the Beskidy Mountains", took its name. Wisła City is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the country, both in the winter and summer. The dynamic development of accommodation base and tourism-related infrastructure, including Poland's largest number of chairlifts every year attracts thousands of tourists. It is no different with amateurs of all sports, including cycling, which constitute a significant part of enduro and downhill enthusiasts. The legendary Stożek Mountain is considered by many of them as "Mecca of Polish Downhill" because first Downhill Contest competition was run here. The organization of the European Championship in this special place is the culmination of work and effort of originators DH Downhill Contest in popularizing downhill in Poland. It also takes on a symbolic dimension – “return to the source”.
