Pieniny. Inviting to this part of our Land is only necessary for them who have never been here. But the one who has seen the unique beauty of the place knows how special it is. Splendid nature, its distinction, originality of landscapes, vivid past of the land, precious monuments and still live Goral folklore cause that Pieniny are visited every year by several hundred thousand people.
