Welcome to Beskid Niski
The Beskid Niski (Lower Beskid) is a forest-covered mountain range with gentle slopes that runs for about 85km west to east along the Slovakian frontier. It’s bordered on the west by the Beskid Sądecki and on the east by the Bieszczady. As its name suggests, it is not a high outcrop: its tallest peak does not exceed 1000m and the range is made for easy walks. The Beskid Niski offers less spectacular vistas than the neighbouring Bieszczady, but its dozens of small Orthodox and Uniat churches, especially in the western half of the region, are a strong draw.
