    Bieszczady (byesh-tsha-dy - good luck:) is a region of exceptional tourist and recreational values. It's the westernmost piece of the Eastern Carpathians, extending from the Ushok-pass in Ukraine to the "Łupkowska"- pass in Poland. The region is the corner between the border with Ukraine and with Slovak Republic.

    The exceptional landscape is here characterized by the long, parallel from the North-West to the South-East running mountain ranges with the characteristic and often rather flat saddle-shaped peaks, which are covered with meadows, so called "poloniny". The highest peak is Tarnica (1346 m above sea-level).
    The area belongs to the International Biosphare Reserve "Eastern Carpathians"; the most important parts of this mountains are nature reserves as well (for example the National Park Bieszczady, where many plant and animal species are strictly protected (aurochs, brown bear, lynx, wolve, Carpathian deer, serpent of Aesculapius; endemic plant species like sundew, Carpathian spurge, Eastern Carpathians Thistle...)

    Bieszczady is the least populated and developed region in Poland. As a borderland Bieszczady is famous for the original culture, based on the Ruthenian ex-population (Boyko's, Lemko's), mix of religions (catholic, greek-catholic, orthodox, jewish, armenian etc.) and languages (Ruthenian dialects, Polish, Jiddishm, Hungarian, Slovak etc.)

    Concerning the original character of this mountains they are called as a Polish "wild East".
