Gorce glades


Gorce mountains are a part of the Western Beskidy Mountains. The Gorce Mountains culminate in Mount Turbacz, rising to a height of 1,310 m above sea level. Mount Turbacz is a hub of several ridges, which are separated by deep valleys. The landscape of Gorce has been altered by human activity. Early settlers appeared in the Gorce area in the 12th century. The forests suffered most in the 19th century during the imperial rule of Austria-Hungary. Trees were cut on a large scale, especially in easily accessible areas. Some glades, located on ridges, were used as mountain pastures until recently. Today the picturesque and charming glades enrich the biodiversity and landscapes. (Lern more: The Gorce National Park)
