Guided tours for individual and organized groups. Live demonstrations of glass blowing traditional production - great fun for the families with kids. Factory shop offers wide range of own products.

Tours in English and Polish (separately) are carried out every 30-60 minutes. The guide Edyta was super friendly and seemed to love the business she is in. Edyta was very informative, answered all questions in good English. The tour takes place in an actual glass blowing place, so you get to see everything as it is happening. And you can... More

This is one of the best places to see how they make the crystal, I have been to waterford and swarovski before as well. We had to wait around 30mins for an English guide to be arranged, his english was OK but we could understand what was going on. Up close but still feel safe, kids were fascinated and great... More

We took the guided tour, which was very interesting. Saw the glass owen, how they molded the flowing glass and made sculptures by hand. Nice shop with beautiful items for sale. Just sorry that you are only allowed 20 kg in the suitcase onthe plane. Go there if you have time, you won't regret it!

Again in Glasswork and again great experience. Lots of fun for everyone. You see from one meter how hard the glasswork is and how hot is inside the factory.

Thank you for your visit and positive opinion! That's true, that visit in Huta Julia is an unusual experience, because you can see everything about crystal glass production, sometimes even closer than from one meter. More

Totally recommend going there. I haven't seen making glass things in real life. If possible go there on a normal weekday instead of a holiday as then you can see more workers and artists doing their job.

A very interesting and more importantly not too long guide through the process of making cristal carafes, glasses and other products made on special order preceeded by a brief history of the factory. Watching craftsmen at work ccompanied by the process description - really worth a visit. There is also a shop where you can purchase some beautifully cut glass... More

The Julia glassworks factory is good place to learn how the handmade cristal is produced. You get a tour around the factory stopping in various places and listening to the guide. At the end (or at the beginning) you can purchase their products and the selection is huge. You / children can also participate in the workshops but we have... More

We could watch how the hard job is done and aas questions on the spot; they show you every step of creating items from glass - from the very simple ones, to very very very complicated and beautiful (like presents for British Royal Family guests on the wedding of Kate and William :-) Workshops are amazing - you can cut...
