The Karkonosze Mountains

The Karkonosze Mountains is the highest granite range of the Sudetes, with the Polish-Czech border running along its main ridge. A characteristic element of the Karkonosze landscape are picturesque rocks growing out of the forests, forming approx. 150 groups and individual rock figures up to 25 m high. Due to the fantastic shapes and legends associated with them, each of them received its own name: among others Sunflower, Bird’s Nests, Cuckoo Rocks, Cats.

The Śnieżne Kotły postglacial moraine and the Wielki and Mały ponds with the Samotnia shelter are also incredibly spectacular. In many places, the waterfalls with the most spectacular waterfall, Kamieńczyk, cross the main ridge.
