Welcome to Poland

The Pieninski National Park

The Pieninski National Park was founded in January 1955. It is one of smallest parks with the area of 2,346 ha and 2,682 ha of buffer zone. A truly unique natural feature of the Pieninski National Park is the Dunajec River Gorge, which is one of the most beautiful in Europe. Rafting down the Dunajec River, through the Gorge, Dunajec Riveris a major tourist attraction, recommended in all guidebooks. The closest tourist center and health spa is Szczawnica-Kroscienko. On the Park's border there are two famous castles, in Czorsztyn and in Niedzica, both clearly visible from many spots in the Park. Adjacent to this park is the Pieniny National Park on a territory of Slovakia. The Pieninski National Park is exceptional in many respects. Its small area boasts unique landscapes and natural features. A narrow strip of klippen rocks, which has developed into relatively low but picturesque Pieniny Mountains range, extends as a belt along the boundary line between the Outer and the Central Western Carpathians. The limestone rocks of this belt, throughout millenia, have been weathered into round shapes from the north and the dramatic, high cliffs on the southern side. The massif of the Trzy Korony (Three Crowns), whose highest peak Okraglica rises to a height of 982 m above sea level, is the highest in the range. Some other spectacular peaks include Sokolica (Falcon Rock), Ostra Skala (Sharp Rock) and Grabczycha, all towering over the Dunajec River.
