The Przemyskie Foothills and the Sanocko-Turczanskie Mountains

First of all, a happy 2015 for all our readers! Ingrid and I are ready for new trips, new experiences and new memories!

The area mentioned in the title of this post is located near the town of Przemysl. It’s a vast area, which has to offer a bit of everything: nature, history, culture and architecture.

Located not far from the Polish-Ukrainian border, Przemysl used to be an important trade center. Nowadays, you can admire its beautiful churches.

Posada Rybotycka

This small village has a very special gem, located near the main road: Poland’s oldest orthodox church. It was built between the 14th and 16th century. Unfortunately, the church was closed.

Turnicki Nature Park

Interested in nature, hiking and/or cycling? Then this nature park is something for you, with its primeval forests, magnificent wildlife and the river Wiat, whose course we followed by car.

Or, you can do what the locals like to do on a hot summer day: look for a place in the shadow near the river.


Another cozy village with a rare attraction: a wooden Greek Catholic church. Also closed…

Kalwaria Paclawska

Polish version of a pilgrimage village. Pilgrims can follow trails through slopes and forests; the final stop is a magnificent church, devoted to the Holy Virgin.

These were our highlights. If you want more information about this fascinating region, head to the tourist information office of Przemysl.

    Beautiful photos of region which I am fascinated about. Turnicki National Park is not established yet, it’s just a project. And the river is Wiar not Wiat. There are many wooden orthodox churches in this area, but Liskowate is one of the prettiest. Regards
