  • Origin

    CHAWIRA in old vernacular means a HOUSE. The word is a derivative from the old Polish borderland dialect; used by people living in the former Polish city of Lwów (now Western Ukraine).

    How did people from Lwów found themselves at the feet of the Sudety Mountains?
    As a result of Second World War, the former eastern borders of Poland (now Ukraine, Belarus and Lithuania) were annexed by the Soviet Union. The Lower Silesia became a home to the thousands of people exiled from these territories. The Eastern Borderlands have a special place in the Polish history. They bring back memories of great patriotic uprisings, historical sites, and creative work of many generations of Polish people. The place was also known for its warmth, humor, and traditional hospitality – a unique atmosphere which CHAWIRA wants to bring to you.
