Sokoliki (also called Sokoły or Góry Sokole) and Rudawy Janowickie are two areas in Poland which can be actually treated as one region, as they are very close to each other. They’re located in south-west of Poland, about 15 km from the town Jelenia Góra.

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?
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.
Did you know that only 35 km from Warsaw you can visit the Castle of the Masovian Dukes, located in Czersk which is one of the oldest strongholds in Mazovia? Actually now it’s only ruins but it’s great idea for one day biking trip which includes also nice surrounding fruit orchards.
One of my first thoughts when I visited Czerwińsk nad Wisłą was that it looks like open air museum. Wooden houses from 19th century and a monastery from 12th century is what makes this village unique.
Last winter 15 tourists died in Tatra Mountains. What to do, to not share their fate and be safe in winter in this mountain range? Read few things, I learned on winter mountaineering course.
Do you like mushrooms? What about mushroom rocks? :) It’s aggregation of rocks which shape resembles mushrooms, in Stołowe Mountains (Table mountains). Close to this area you can see also the peat bog Niknąca Łąka – another attraction of this National Park.
