Stołowe Mountains

The Stołowe Mountains, closing the Kłodzko Valley on the west side, are the only plate mountains in Poland. These mountains are a kind of plateau with steep 200-meter faults.

The landscape attractiveness and natural processess were the reasons to establish Stołowe Mountains National Park in this area. The highest point of the Stołowe Mountains is Szczeliniec Wielki (919 m above sea level). Over the millennia, wind and water have formed cracks in the sandstone like caverns and corridors, and many individual rocks have been formed in fantastic shapes. The staircase carved in the rock with 665 steps leads to Szczeliniec. Among the fissures, clefts and rocks with fairy-tale names, there is a tourist path.

The nearby Błędne Skały nature reserve looks like a city with a regular street layout. It is made up of peculiar rock formations that resemble a complex network of corridors. Mountain climbing enthusiasts also venture into the Stołowe Mountains, trying their strength on the slopes of Szczeliniec Wielki.

Peat bogs are a peculiarity of the Stołowe Mountains. The most famous, almost 40-hectare, Great Batorowskie Peat bog is covered with typical marsh vegetation (among others, leafy blueberry willows, mud pines, marsh heaths, sundews grow here). The most beautiful mountain peat bog in Poland is located near Zieleniec, “Torfowisko pod Zieleniec”. It is a large (almost 160 ha) peat bog situated at an altitude of about 750 m above sea level. in places it resembles the Siberian tundra. Mainly sphagnum mosses and dwarf birch, marsh pine, bog cranberry and many other rare marsh plants grow here.
