Pieniny meadows

The meadows in Pieniny mountains are not natural but they constitute a very important element of the landscape. They are colourful, rich in species and highly diversified. In a single square metre one can find about 30-40 species of flowering plants. There are many orchids and other interesting flowers and plants. The best month to see them is June. The meadows, due to their species diversity and richness, provide thousands of stenothermal and photophilous insects with a plentiful supply of food. The Pieniny meadows are famous for abundance of butterflies; the best known one is the Mountain Apollo, which can be found only here. (Learn more: Pieniński Park Narodowy)
