Poland - Carpathian Mountains (PDF Chapter)
This is the Carpathian Mountains chapter from Lonely Planet’s Poland guidebook.
The wooded hills and peaks of the Carpathian Mountains are a beacon for hikers, cyclists and skiers in season. And because of the region’s remoteness, this ‘forgotten corner’ has been able to preserve its traditional folkways better than other parts of the country.
