The Dunajec River Gorge (Polish: Przełom Dunajca) runs through the Pieniny Mountains in the south of Poland and the north of Slovakia (as Dunajec is the border river between the two countries in the area). The gorge is characterized by some of the most interesting geological and geomorphological structures and area-specific natural ecosystems with little anthropogenic influence. It is featured on UNESCO's Tentative List of World Heritage Sites in Poland.Dunajec Gorge is also one of the best-known tourist attractions in the Pieniny Mountains. Wooden canoe trips have been organized daily by highlanders (Polish: Górale) since the early 19th century — when their customers consisted mostly of guests of nearby Niedzica and Czorsztyn castles. The trip begins in the village of Sromowce Kąty, and ends in the resort town of Szczawnica, 18 km downstream. It takes about 2-3 hours.The Gorge is part of a valley located within the Pieniny National Park.
