In the past all foreign tourists were forced to exchange certain amount of money every time they were crossing the boarder according to the official (poor) course, not anymore! People from Western Europe and the USA were also forced to pay higher rates in the hotels than people from Eastern Europe - not anymore either.

Polish Mountains

The southern border of Poland in its eastern and central part is occupied by Carpathian Mountains. Carpathians mark the natural boarder between Poland and Slovakia and other countries. They are second largest mountain chain in Europe stretching from Poland and Slovakia to Romania.

The most eastern part of Carpathians which border with Ukraine consists of mountains Bieszczady. Bieszczady belongs to Eastern Carpathians and are build out of mild sandstone. They are covered mainly with grass and forest, the highest peak ~ 1,3 km high. Bieszczady belong to very few enclaves in Poland which conserved their pristine landscape and atmosphere. Bieszczady are the perfect place for hermits and people who want to relax. This place was almost completely deserted after the WW II. The ethic minority of Lemk were resettled to other regions because of fights for their independence after WW II.
