Not only Śnieżka – the new atlas reveals the richness of the Karkonosze mountains
The geological structure, diverse flora and fauna of the KrkonoÅ¡e Mountains are presented in a scientifically developed atlas, jointly published by the KrkonoÅ¡e National Park and its Czech counterpart. The maps not only reflect the tourist attractions of Lower Silesia, such as the roads leading to nieÅ¼ka, Szrenica or the KamieÅczyk waterfall, but also the many rocks, bogs and natural sites on either side of the border.
Dr Hobb oversaw the development of the Karkonos Mountain Atlas. Valdemar Spalk. The cartographer from the University of Wroclaw claims that these mountains hide many secrets and riches – their geological structure, diverse flora and fauna can also be explored in less frequented places.
This is the first regional atlas of the Karkonos Mountains. The Polish-Czech friendly has prepared, and here we have full information about the regions on both sides of the border â- confirms Professor Sabalek. The atlas in pfd form can be obtained from the Karkonosze National Park website https: // kpnmab.pl/wydawnictwa-naukowe The book will be awarded to participants in educational projects organized by Karkonosze National Park.
The atlas contains maps with brief descriptions. However, this is not a travel guide. It is aimed at those who do not content themselves with hiking in the mountains alone, and who wish to learn more about the region.
âIt is a collection of knowledge on various subjects related to the Karkonosze region. This is mainly natural information: the plant world, the animal world, inanimate nature: geology, climate, water, soil, rocks, minerals and so-called geological sites – things of particular interest. from the point of view of geological and geomorphological considerations. â- the author lists Ø³Ø±Ø¯
Professor Spalik encourages people to choose not only the most popular routes when hiking in the Karkonos Mountains. He admits that ÅnieÅ¼ka – the culmination of this chain, distinctive external features of a definite shape – is perhaps the most interesting in terms of landscape. But it also points to other interesting places.
âOn the hills west of ÅnieÅ¼ka we have many rocks, natural sites and beautiful bogs. But also the whole Czech side of Karkonosze, a little lower down, is very interesting and diverse. The Polish slope of the Karkonosze mountains is geologically homogeneous. On the Czech side, the geology is much more complex, which is what translates to landscape â, underlines the cartographer.
