There are two major climbing areas in Poland: Sokoliki / Rudawy which I will describe in next article, and Jura Krakowsko-Częstochowska, located between cities Kraków and Częstochowa.

The Tatras are undoubtedly amazing mountains. Although they occupy a small area, they delight with towering peaks and ridges. Their alpine nature, however, makes them dangerous and some trails are definitely not for everyone. Which trails are suitable for beginner, intermediate and advanced hikers?
I have had the opportunity to walk the hanging bridges on via ferratas already several times, but I definitely had the best time on Jägihorn! The bridge is really long, hangs high above the ground, the surrounding views are beautiful and its swinging while passing provides extra emotions :)
For a long time I could not convince myself to go to Breithorn (4164 m). I haven’t been on any four-thousander before – except for Toubkal, where I didn’t reach the summit ;) so it would be a pleasure to reach some, but hiking the ski runs didn’t seem interesting to me. I don’t regret, however. I gained new experiences, and the views, despite these ski runs, were pleasing to the eye.
Pieniny is a small mountain range in the south of Poland and the north of Slovakia. The most famous peaks – Trzy Korony and Sokolica are less than 1000 m high but they offer great views on the Dunajec river and Tatra Mountains. There are also other attractions available like castles and raft trips down the Dunajec on traditional wooden rafts.
