Bieszczady Mountains and the Beskid Niski

Europe’s least populated region

The Bieszczady is a wild and scantily populated mountain region of thick forests and high open meadows known as poloniny. The most spectacular part of the region is occupied by the Bieszczady National Park and constitutes the habitat of big birds of prey and mammals. The park is a constituent of the international Biosphere Reserve of Eastern Carpathians.

Excellent grounds for winter sports, hiking trips and horse rides. The Beskid Niski Range incorporates the Magura National Park.

Old wooden Orthodox and Uniate churches greatly beautify the landscape of the region.
