One of the best known places in Polish Bieszczady is Wetlińska Polonyna and Chatka Puchatka (eng. The House at Pooh Corner) – the highest mountain hut in this mountain range. Hiking trails to these places are easy, suitable also for children and elderly. If you like to soak up views at low altitudes, come to Poland and see this part of Bieszczady :)

Bieszczady Mountains are known for their wide open polonynas – meadows located in the upper zone of mountains. They offer beautiful landscapes at low altitudes which makes them accessible even for people with not the best condition. One of places worth to visit is Caryńska Polonyna in Bieszczady National Park.
One before last day in Austrian Alps I made a trip from Habsburghaus to Karl-Ludwig-Haus through via ferratas Kaisersteig and Wildfährte. It wasn’t long and hard journey so it was perfect for me this day, as I didn’t feel great.
You won’t find high mountains in Lower Austria. The highest peak – Hochschneeberg (Klosterwappen) is only 2076 m high but it doesn’t mean it’s not worth to visit. I had beautiful weather and views were so lovely, that today I had serious problem with choosing which photos to show you :)
Beautiful route leading along a brook in Studená Dolina and through two saddles: Prielom (2288 m a.s.l.) and Poľský hrebeň (eng. Polish Comb) at 2200 m a.s.l. First part of route was easy trial with lovely views of brook and waterfall but Prielom and Poľský hrebeň gave us a hard time.
Giewont is 1894 m high and has characteristic profile of – as legend says – sleeping knight. It is located close to Zakopane city what makes it very popular and crowded. I suggest not to go there during summer weekend unless you want to wait 3 hours in queue to the peak :)
