The Połoniny (mountain pastures) that cover the slopes of the mountains are characteristic meadows of the Bieszczady Mountains. The most beautiful and popular is Połonina Wetlińska with the new Chatka Puchatka. This is where tourist routes cross, and the high location allows you to look deeper into the territory of Ukraine. From here, you can admire the impressive sunsets in the evenings.
The Bieszczady peaks have original names related to the languages of the region – an interesting example is Bukowe Berdo. These are great hiking spots for mountain lovers and novices who want to start their adventure. The trail to Bukowe Berdo is rarely used, and the view extends to Tarnica, Krzemień, Połonina Caryńska and the upper San valley.
In the Sine Wiry Reserve you can admire the real power of the element, where Wetlinka flows through a rocky bed. Two routes lead to the most magnificent parts of the reserve – the shorter one from Bukowiec and the longer one from Kalnica. The intricate meanders and moss-covered boulders will turn the trip into an unforgettable adventure.
The bay in Teleśnica is a unique combination of the calm waters of Lake Solina and the groves surrounding it. It is one of the most peaceful places in the area, and also a great spot for sunbathing and fishing.
The Starry Sky Park is one of the darkest places in Poland and Europe, so it will be perfect for space observers, because the celestial bodies that surround us are clearly visible.
The Bieszczady Sea – Lake Solina and the dam on the San and Solinka rivers supporting it. The dam is 82 m high and creates a reservoir with the largest capacity in Poland, almost 500 million cubic meters of water! There is also a hydroelectric power plant that generates electricity for the entire region. 2 million tons of concrete were used for the construction. Narrow corridors, deep under the surface of the water, can be visited with a guide.
A real pearl for lovers of flora and fauna is located in Ustrzyki Dolne. The Bieszczady National Park has its own nature museum. The collection includes exhibitions dedicated to the birth of primitive life forms, prehistoric creatures and the current inhabitants of forests and meadows.
In the Museum of Milling and Village in Ustrzyki Dolne, the founders gathered the best and most popular machines for the production of flour and cereal products from the 17th – 19th centuries. The authors took care of the smallest details, restoring unique specimens telling the history of food production.
In Sanok, there is the oldest and largest ethnographic museum in Poland in terms of the number of collected objects. The Folk Architecture Museum is an authentic story about how people from different social classes and cultures lived their lives in the past. The exhibits include houses, farm buildings, churches, blacksmith workshops and oil wells. A few years ago, the open-air museum was enlarged by the reconstructed market square of a Galician town.
We are only half an hour away from the highest located railway route in Poland, the Bieszczady Forest Railway. The “Bieszczadzka ciuchcia” runs regularly from the end of April to the last days of October. The train begins its journey in Majdan, from where you can get to Balnica or Przysłup. The entire route leads through a charming mountain pass.
Leg powered draisines run in Uherce Mineralne. Bicycle trolleys are a great attraction and an opportunity for active fun in a group. The route mostly runs through wild nature. The renovated railway station alludes to the adventures of the distracted soldier Švejk, who, according to Hasek, had to to mess around in the district.
Swimming pools are very popular in our region. There are three complexes available all year round in the nearby towns of Lesko, Ustrzyki Dolne and Sanok. All pools are covered and have slides, saunas and a jacuzzi. Each outdoor swimming pool is open in summer.
