I would like to show you the beauty and extraordinariness of a place unknown and forgotten by people.
I spent the last few days in a wonderful place in the Bialskie Mountains, located in the south-west of Poland, along the border with the Czech Republic. The mountains are rather low – the highest peak (Rudawiec) is 1109 m above the sea level. When I was a teenager, I used to travel to Bielice, a small and lovely village at the foot of the Bialskie Mountains, very often – a couple of times a year, with my parents. It was them, who discovered this gorgeous spot. Then I had a long break in visiting these areas. A few days ago I returned there and I was very positively surprised finding out, that nothing had changed. I am very happy I could wander in the marvellous nature once again.

Me having fun on the way to the Kowadło Peak (989 m above the sea level); actually Kowadło lies in the Złote Mountains – the mountain range located on the other side of Bielice

The Bialskie Mountains is definitely a place where one can restore and forget about everyday troubles. While roaming through their woods, we barely met other tourists. A nice short holiday 😀 Enjoy your week!
