The Mount Suhora Observatory (Polish: Obserwatorium astronomiczne na Suhorze) is an astronomical observatory owned and operated by the Astronomy department of the Pedagogical University of Cracow. It is located on Mount Suhora in the Gorce Mountains within the Gorce National Park, 50 km south of Kraków.
Founded on November 5, 1987, Mt. Suhora Observatory serves a dual purpose. It is meant as a place of learning for students of the University's Astronomy department from Kraków as well as the research-work facility. The original Lubomir Observatory built in prewar Poland was burned down in 1939 by the invading Red Army. The building of the new observatory was designed by R. Walczykiewicz of Kraków.
