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 :)
Tarnica is 1346 m a.s.l. and is the highest and the most popular peak of polish part of Bieszczady mountain range. It’s easy to get there and it offers nice views but in summer weekends you have to be prepared for many tourists.
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.
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 :)
Czarna Hańcza is popular waterway in Podlaskie Province. It’s calm river, suitable for beginner kayakers and those who like relax and contact with nature.
It was 3 years ago, with 3 friends, on weekend in June. Now I know better what I can expect in Tatra mountains, but that time I didn’t know :) We didn’t expect so much people and so much snow.
The most difficult and most dangerous trail in Tatra Mountains. Secured by chains, ladders and metal steps. If you like adrenaline, you will like this path!
Świder is small river close to Warsaw. Although Mazovia Province is flat region, Świder is very attractive river and it can be exciting on some parts. I was kayaking on this river three times and every time it was different.
Reportedly on Babia Góra there’s wind 364 days a year. It is 1725 m high and is the highest mountain of Western Beskids. “Babia Góra” can be translated as “old woman’s mountain”, but it is also often called “Diablak”, which comes from a word “diabeł” – devil.
