Welcome to Lesko

WWII and the years that followed changed the ethnic picture altogether. The Jews were slaughtered by the Nazis, the Ukrainians were defeated by the Polish military and the Lemks were deported. The town was rebuilt and, without having developed any significant industry, is now a small tourist centre. While it may not be the ‘Gateway to the Bieszczady’ as it likes to call itself – that distinction really goes to Sanok – it is a pleasant stopover on the way south.
