Spreading out over 670 sq km on the Poland/Slovakia border, the Beskid Sądecki (bes-keed son-dets-kee) is an attractive mountain range of moderate height offering hiking, sightseeing and spa towns such as Krynica and Muszyna. The Beskid Sądecki comprises two subranges, the Pasmo Jaworzyny and the Pasmo Radziejowej, which are separated by the Poprad River valley. There are a number of peaks over 1000m, the highest being Mt Radziejowa (1261m).
The Beskid Sądecki was the westernmost territory populated by the Lemks, and a dozen of their charming rustic churches survive, particularly around Krynica and Muszyna. Beskid Sądecki maps (scale 1:50,000; 15zł) published by two different firms (WiT and Demart) are helpful for hikers and cerkiew (wooden church) peepers.
